RDP Gateway

Authentication will be done using your OHIO ID and PW.

The use of this service will create an encrypted tunnel between your client and the RD Gateway machine. Using the tunnel the client can then use Remote Desktop Protocol (RPD) to remotely connect and login to another windows machine.
