Getting RDWeb to send over 443 instead of 3389....
Hi all, having a bit of a problem at the moment with our RDS Remote Web Access and getting it to work with some other organizations firewalls/proxies etc.
Just a bit of background, the RDS server is setup and running fine, the certificate is installed correctly and users can access the web gateway via https://remote.ourdomain.co.uk/, they can log in and they can run either a published App or click Remote Desktop to load straight into a desktop. All of this works fine.
We have some members of staff who have been seconded out to work in other partner organizations and I am coming against a problem whereby our remote access isn't being allowed through their proxies/firewall/whatever because when it makes a connection back to our server it does so on port 3389 directly, which is a big no-no. Now i'm under the understanding that the SSL port 443 is a port which will allow the traffic through but i'm a bit stumped at the moment in how to get the traffic routing over that so that it can traverse any firewalls and proxies it comes to without any problems.
I'm not the greatest with all this RD Web remote access stuff so i'm not entirely sure if ive missed off a simple option, or if the way I have configured it is prohibiting it from being sent out over 443.
I have 2 rules set up on our Draytek. One is to forward port 3389 on one WAN IP (the one that is pointing to our web access page) to 3389 on the RDS server (if I don't have this setup when a user clicks on the remote desktop link they can't get in, it just thros up an error when trying to connect).
And another is port forwarding of 443 from the same WAN IP to the same RDS server (if I dont have this setup users can't access our https://remote.ourdomain.co.uk/ )
I'm not sure if these play any part in all of this.
I have no idea if this is the correct way to do things but that's how I got it all to work in the first instance and upon looking at a packet tracer I can see that when it does connect it connects on 3389.
Is anyone able to offer any advice/guidance on how I might get it so that all the data is sent over 443 instead of 3389?
