Using ngrok with RDP

ngrok's TCP tunnels can be used for RDP traffic but we recommend they only be used in conjunction with restricting access to a specific set of IP addresses using IP restrictions. Start a TCP tunnel to port 3389 and add the --cidr-allow flag with the IP addresses you'll be connecting from.

ngrok tcp 3389 --cidr-allow

TCP endpoints are only available on a free plan after adding a valid payment method to your account.

To learn more about the RDP protocol and security best practices, see the Understanding the Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) documentation from Microsoft.
