Enable RDP ADDS Users

How to Configuration RDP Active Directory users

So, here I am explaining steps

Configuring RDP Option in windows server ADDS

Go to Server Manager- Active Directory Users and Computers

Allow Remote Desktop Connection to Active Directory Users.

Create A New Group in ADDS Built-in

Go to Properties

Tab to Members and add the member

Built-in – Go to Remote Desktop Users.

Created new group in Built-in Active directory and users

Properties and go to member and add in the member list.

Add user in created group

I have added 2 users having RDP Access.

So, need to assign the created group to Remote Desktop users

Add the group

Click okay and go to GPO

Go to Group Policy Management.

Create a new group policy –

and edit that. once you will edit it will open in new windows.

Once open select computer configuration

Click to administrative templates expand and click to windows components

Remote Desktop Service – Remote Desktop Session Host


Edit and enable allow user

Click to administrative templates expand and click to windows components


Enable requires user authentication

computer configuration – windows settings


Group Policy Management Editor,

Computer configuration

Windows setting – security setting – user right assignment

Add the group

local policy -user rights assignments

once you have update group policy it will replicate in local group policy also

So now need to enable RDP Default port:3389

Go to Group policy management editor

Windows settings – security settings

Windows defender firewall – click to inbound rules

Either we can use predefined rule or can use specific 3389 port

Now I m not using default predefined rule.

Click next

Click next

Click next and apply new rules  once done need to update to gpo rule

So it’s created RDP Allow port Firewall

Now just update group policy.

Can use gpupdate or gpupdate /force

Press win+r and type mstsc and press enter otherwise search remote desktop connection

So finally, RDP Connection perfectly working
