Server 2008 TS Gateway questions?

We have successfully configured TS Web Access and a TS Gateway on our Windows Server 2008 Terminal Server and are looking to clean up the user connection process. Does anyone know of a way to configure the TS web access to authenticate using Forms Based Authentication? I have read that the only way to do this is if you have an ISA Front End Authentication Server, is this true?

We would also like to remove the requirement to type domainname\username and just allow users to type their username's when connecting via RDP 6 to a Server 2008 machine. Any ideas?

Your first point is correct. You must have ISA Server in order to gain Forms Based Authentication on TS Web Access. That's the only way (at present) you can get this feature.

I assume you are talking in your second point about when they actually log in to the server. I have got around this issue by following the process at http://ts.veranoest.net/ts_faq_configuration.htm#logondomain.

What about for an RDP shortcut that has the TS Gateway saved? Is there a way to include the domain there?

If you have RDP Client version 6 which you say you do, you can save a shortcut. You need to expand Options >> in the bottom-right, input the servername and username (preceded by DOMAIN\) and then save it. This would need to be specific to each username though, you cannot simply specify the domain name in the RDP file.
