Multihomed 2016 server. Disabling RDP on the external NIC.

I've googled for 30 minutes so now I'll break down and ask: Can I bind RDP to just one network adapter? I want to completely disable it on the public interface. I don't want to restrict it by the Windows firewall, I just want it turned off on the external NIC.

    You want the SetNetworkAdapterLanaID method.

    First, thank you for the response. That matches what I had read. I'm developing instructions for entry level Engineers that aren't super CLI/WMI savvy. I had hoped that it was something I could simplify and screenshot within the GUI in order to sell it to management as an easy process. In the absence of that, I will lab it up at home and document/script the process.

    Well you could always edit the registry setting that the script points to and simply make a .reg file if you prefer.
