About the block on off-campus remote desktop connections at IU
To protect the Indiana University network from a vulnerability in the Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) announced March 13, 2012, UITS blocks incoming remote desktop connections from computers on non-IU networks. (The block went into effect Thursday, June 21, 2012.) UITS is not blocking RDP for on-campus users. Making a remote desktop connection from one campus system to another is still allowed, as long as both systems are on the IU network.
