    Conflict between Firewall and Remote Desktop Connection

    I can't make adjustments to my server's firewall unless the firewall is on. But if the firewall is on, I can't use remote desktop connection to connect to my server. GoDaddy has, a couple of times, turned the firewall off so that I can use RDC again, but it is not very good to keep it that way. What to do?

    Are you using windows OS or linux? 


    Is there a reason why you're not using SSH? port 22 is usually not blocked by default.

    @JHasselbring I am trying to use SSH through my Plesk-Windows server hosting but, it seems, port 22 IS currently blocked, perhaps, because there is no SSH server.

    Aight... I'm not familiar with windows networking.  Any luck?
