    RemoteApp prompting twice for credentials - NOT AN ISSUE WITH REMOTEAPP SETUP...

    Hello everyone,

    I have a Windows 7 Home Premium computer that I use to connect to RD Web and launch RemoteApps. The problem is that I get prompted twice to enter credentials to open a RemoteApp - I get prompted at the RD Web Access login which is fine but for some reason SSO is not working and causing me to have to re-authenticate when I launch a RemoteApp. It also asks for credentials everytime I open another remoteApp during that session.

    I can confirm that the server side setup is working properly because I have tried it on another Windows computer which is not connected to the same domain. This other computer is running Windows 7 Professional - is it possible that this is the reason why, when launching remoteApps on Home Premium I am asked again when I click on a remoteApp - I can't think this would be.

    Any help/advice would be appreciated as it is quite annoying when trying to use a number of remoteApps!!

    Thanks in advance!

    J.Worth.

    With 2008R2 RDS at least, this happens when you do not choose the "this is a private computer" when logging into web access, which essentially disables sso.

    Also happens when your remote apps are not signed, or signed with a self-signed certificate.

    If your remote apps are only for internal use and not for external use, you can set up your own active dirtectory integrated certificate authority and issue a certificate from that. If your apps will be used externally then you need to start using the external dns name instead of the internal one.

    When you say use the external dns name do you mean for the server name? How can you do that if the server is attached to the domain which is .local

    Well, your internal active directory domain might be randomcompany.local and the server might be remote.randomcompany.local, but your website might be www.randomcompany.com and your remote external address could then be remote.randomcompany.com. You should then purchase an external ssl certificate for the server to sign the remote apps/for web access etc with that external address.

    You only need to do this if your remote apps are to be available form outside the network though. Otherwise just issue your own.
