Global Protect client - Block inbound traffic - Internet Adapter

Hi,

The scenarios is as follows:
a) I have a Windows10-client with Global Protect (GP) version 4.1.4 installed

b) The Win10 has inbound RDP (tcp-3389) enabled so that the support can access the client remotely

c) The GP is configured with "Always On" so that it connect to our company network as soon as it finds an ISP-connection

 

 

The problem:
a) While the GP-client is connected to our company network, it is still accepting incoming RDP-connections on the INTERNET-adapter

 

The question:
Is it possible to "block" inbound RDP-connections from INTERNET while the GP-client is active or do I have to do that with either Windows own firewall or a third party firewall software?

@ChristerJohanssonR,

Within Windows firewall you need to limit the rule to just a subset of source IPs. So essentially the only thing that is allowed RDP access is going to come from your internal IPs, not public sources.
