Terminal Services via Remote Web Workplace

Posted on 2006-04-12

My customer has a SBS2003 box with a second 2003 server as a Terminal Server. I have set publishing rules in ISA so that the Terminal Server is published on port 3389 of the main server. It works well.

He is currently on holiday in Spain and wants to log in via terminal services. Unfortunately, the pc in the internet cafe won't allow him to run the Remote Desktop Connection program. I suggested that he uses Remote Web Workplace from his browser. However when he does so, the Terminal Server doesn't show up in the list of available computers.

How do I fix this?

    That's because it wasn't added to the domain properly.  Please see this article on how to do that:

    Once you fix this, it will show up on the RWW menu as "Connect to my company's Application Server"

    Hello Jeff,

    It turns out everything was installed correctly, but he was clicking the option to connect to a client pc. So naturally the Terminal Server wasn't in the list.

    When I told him to choose the option to connect to the Application Server, he found the Terminal Server was there in the list.

    Thanks for your help again.
