I also use RDP. One thing you might consider is changing the port
that RDP listens on
I suppose a connect scan would still pick it up, but a "lighter" scan
wouldn't raise red flags when port 3389 shows as being open.
No offence to the dev's but I just don't let Myth play outside. No
telling what stranger will drive up and offer it candy.
(applogies if this email is a little "off". It's been a really,
really long week)
I have one Gmail invite left.
Let me know if you want one (off list).
