    TS Gateway - Public IP needed for TS Clients?

    Hi All,

    I fear this is a bit of a noob style question, but I'll ask it as I don't know!

    Currently, I have a TS Client in a public facing role which users on the Internet can connect to via Remote Desktop. I put in a change request with SWGfL to allow access and the device has a public IP etc.
    Now, I want to place a TS Gateway in front of the TS client to pre-authenticate and redirect to the existing TS client.

    My question is, would both servers need to have public IP addresses? Or, could I assign the public facing IP to the new Gatway server - and would that allow TS connections to the TS Client which would then essentially have a private IP?

    Cheers

    As I understand it, you give the gateway server a public IP and it forwards requests into your private network.

    Awesome! That's the answer I was hoping for. (It means I don't have to wait 2-3 weeks for SWGfL to action a simple change request!).

    I shall give it a go once my VM for it has finished MS updates.
