From Rob:  Thanks Rob!

Hi Susan, I would’ve commented on
but it looks like comments are off.

Thanks for sharing your firewall exception for Windows 10’s RDP.  It’s a one-off manual fix, but I tracked down how to accomplish the same via GPO:
Computer Configuration->Windows Settings->Security Settings->Windows Firewall with Advanced Security > New Rule > Predefined > Remote Desktop – RemoteFX

This is tested and confirmed working on a customer’s domain (in ADDITION to the usual rules at Computer Configuration->Administrative Templates->Network Connections->Windows Firewall->Domain Profile )

BTW, Google really failed me on this one, and I usually seek you out for stuff like this, so I figured I’d share back atcha.  Thanks for all your hard work!
