Hi All,

Windows 10 Pro

Windows 11 Pro

I have RDP set up on several Windows workstation such that customers can remote into the work computers from home with mstsc.

Problem: on some of them, I am now required to set up multifactor authentication (MFA) to accept a log on. What is the best way to do this?

Many thanks,

    Hello,

     

    Thank you for posting in Q&A forum.

    To configre the MFA for your RDP login, please kindly look into below Microsoft Official Documentation:

     

    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/admin/security-and-compliance/set-up-multi-factor-authentication?view=o365-worldwide

     

    Once it's configured and assigned to users, it will work for user login.

    Hope this answer can help you well.

     

    Best regards,

    Jill Zhou

    Who ever wrote me on my eMail that did not show up here,, missed that the question was about remote access with RDP on a workstation. No server involved.

    This is the route we eventually took: https://duo.com/docs/rdp#download-link
