Does Remote Desktop Client hide my identity?

volcs0volcs0 Member Posts: 1
If I use Microsoft's RDC to log into a remote computer and surf from that computer, is my own computer completely hidden from websites? Is there any way a website could tell that (1) I am using RDC or (2) what the computer of origin is (eg. my IP)? Or will it be impossible to tell that I am not actually sitting at the remote computer?

Thanks.

    Websites cannot tell wether you are visiting them from a remotely controlled computer or a locally controlled computer. It is possible to detect the RDP-session by analysing the internet-traffic to/from one of the computers. But this needs to be done at your gateways, and cannot be done from any webserver.
