NSX Basics - Creating firewall rules to control RDP Access

In this video demonstration I will configure the Distributed Firewall (DFW) to permit access to RDP only for a group of virtual machines. Using dynamic security groups within NSX manger allows new virtual machines meeting the criteria to be automatically protected when they are provisioned.

Configuring firewall rules with dynamic security groups also allows rule creation to be separated from vSphere administrators. As long at the junior admin who creates the VM names it in the correctly the DFW rules will immediately apply. If you would like to know more about VMware NSX then please get in touch.
