The log says authentication succeeded after three failed attempts and then got disconnected because of a time out. How is this B???
3 failed attempts followed by a successful attempt. Connection disconnects after an hour due to idle connection.
User tries to ping the RDP server, ping is denied. Return RDP traffic is accepted. The pings are irrelevant.
Workstation host firewall:
Outbound RDP to the server is allowed, return RDP traffic is dropped.
Answer should be E.
