For more information about the friendly bastion names, see DNS Friendly Bastion Names.

  1. Open the Remote Desktop Connection program, a standard Windows program, and enter the friendly DNS name of the Windows bastion in the hostname field.

  2. Choose Connect. The Remote Desktop Connection attempts an RDP connection to the bastion.

    If successful, a credentials dialog box opens. To gain access, use your corporate Active Directory credentials, as you would with the Windows instance.

  3. Open the Remote Desktop Connection program on the bastion and enter the IP address of the Windows instance you would like to connect to (for example, 10.0.0.100), and then choose Connect. Your corporate Active Directory credentials are again required before you connect to the Windows instance.
