Hello,

I have a Windows 2008 TS Gateway and I need to know if my FQDN needs to be the same as the local server name

Example

Server name:

GW.Company.local
does my SSL Cert from my CA need to be GW.Companydomain.com.au
or can I have it as something else like connect.companydomain.com.au

so what im getting at does the prefix need to be the same as the internal server name or can it be different as long as I issue the SSL CRS to from the TSGW server to specify the correct externa, FQDN that needs to be access all should be apples?

Cheers.

It doesn't matter what certificate you assign to the TS Gateway. However, the name on the certificate you assign must be the name you use to connect via the TS Gateway remotely.

For example, on one of my client networks, they use the address 'remote.company.com' as the TS Gateway server address. The SSL certificate installed therefore requires that name on the certificate.

I generally use a SAN certificate, to include at least the names 'remote.company.com', the server's name, server.active-directory-domain.local. You can't go wrong with that configuration.
