I am setting up 2008 server terminal services with HP thin clients.The server acts as domain controller and terminal server,finished setting up Terminal Gateway server and installed self signed certificate.when i try connecting from thin client to the terminal server gateway, its not connecting to terminal server.But i am able to establish a connection to the domain controller with remote desktop.Can someone help me in trying to connect the thin clients to terminal gateway server.Any help will be appreciated.

  Following error occurs when trying to connect:

  "The computer can't connect to the remote computer because the terminal services client component is missing or is an incorrect version.Verify the setup was completed successfully and then try reconnecting later."

Thank you in advance.

    Configuring TS Clients
    For clients to use the TS Gateway, they must have Remote Desktop Connection 6.0 installed. To download the client, go to the Microsoft article "Remote Desktop Connection (Terminal Services Client 6.0)" ( To configure a client, start the RDP client software and enter the local DNS name of the computer that you want to connect to, click Advanced, and click Settings to configure TS Gatewayrelated options

    The default value is to automatically detect TS Gateway settings, which is sufficient if these settings are forced through Group Policy. Alternatively, you can manually enter the public name of the TS Gateway server. You can also choose to bypass TS Gateway when connecting to hosts with local IP addresses, which will allow the user to use the same RDP connection whether he or she is on the LAN or connecting from the Internet. You can also choose not to use TS Gateway at all.

    After configuring these options and clicking Connect, you will first see a dialog box for authenticating to TS Gateway and then one for authenticating on the remote host. If both authentications are successful, an RDP session will start.
