    RemoteApp and RD Gateway

    Thought i'd create a new thread on this as i'm now using Server 2012 R2 for remote app. Just wondering as in order for me to get this working correctly i'll need a simple third party ssl cert. All users will be accessing the remote apps via remote.domain.com so i guess i would just need an SSL to cover this. Would the following be acceptable?

    sorry @nathan cant help with your query other than to say make sure the certificate is recognised by the major browsers.

    I am also experimenting with Remoteapp, mainly for SIMS access for staff. Were you able to test remoteapp access over the internet without an SSL certificate or do you have to have one in place before configuring RD Gateway?

    I have got it working over a VPN and tested accessing SIMS on an IPAD and a Samsung Galaxy S3 and it all works!!
    I now want to try without the VPN.

    Nathan - Have you tried using a self-signed certificate - just for testing purposes before you buy a certificate?

    Configure a Certificate for the Remote Desktop Gateway Server

    Ah I see - and is that the one that is preventing access from external users?

    Hi. Not sure this is what you were after but you msy find it useful.

    We have been using RDS gateway with remoteapps for a while and use a third party certificate on our gateway. This works for external clients without any issues. We also had to figure out how to make it work internally too using remote.domain.com.

    I came across a solution whilst reading about split dns for another issue. What we did was create a dns zone of domain.com (this is not authorative of course) on our internal dns server. Then added an entry called remote and assigned it the address of the gateway's internal ip address for example 192.168.90.4.

    So now whenever we type in remote.domain.com internally our clients go to the servers internal address but the url matches the certificate. And externally clients using remote.domain.com would connect to the server's published external ip address, again the url matched the certificate.

    If this is something you cannot do on your network then maybe you could look into into SANs for the certificate gor both internal and extetnal url.

    that also sounds useful so thank you for that. i found the problem. I had to add the netbios and ip to the resource authorisation policy, i also disable both and created my own.
