Additional Information

Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) is a proprietary protocol developed by Microsoft, which concerns providing a user with a graphical interface to another computer/server for remote deployment, configuration, and troubleshooting.

You shall not perform Internet Browsing at the Server with RDP as this will lead to security breakage. Additionally, you will experience performance degradation for web browsing due to huge amount of data that required to be transmitted via the internet connection from your workstation to the server.

If you are unable to perform the steps above, kindly submit a ticket to our Support Team with your RDP login details.
