We recently went through this and came to the same conclusion after engaging support.
RDP does work but as you found anyone sitting at the console of the physical machine can watch and interact with the session. BLAST is not available for physical machines. PCoIP is the only real option which requires purchasing a Teradici host card. What's your use case for a physical instead of a VM?
We have this working for several Win10 workstations and are using the RDP protocol. We had to tweak the registry for Win10 though. Are you attempting to remote in to Win 10 desktops? If so, I will add the reg key.

Sorry...I didn't remember that correctly. I didn't have to tweak the registry...It was merely a Group Policy setting.
Here it is:
Verify that the firewall allows RDP connections.
- Open the Group Policy Editor ( gpedit.msc).
- In the left navigation pane, expand Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Remote Desktop Services > Remote Desktop Session Host and select Security.
- Change Require use of specific security layer for remote desktop (RDP) connection to Enabled and select RDP in the Options pane.
- Change Require user authentication for remote connections by using Network Level Authentication to Disabled.
- Restart the Remote Desktop Service or restart the Windows 10 desktop to make your changes take effect.
Thanks for providing in depth info on the settings.
However, after settings these two options, I still get a black screen on direct connection - when I say black screen, it appears that I am connected, but just showing black. I'm not quite sure what's getting in the way here.
Is the hosting computer a Mac or PC? If Mac, you must install and old version of RDC. 2.something
