Accessing Windows Server 2008R2 from internet using Remote Desktop

Hi All,

I've just successfully setup ADSL2+ internet connection in my customer's remote site and I need to support and monitor one custom database application in that Windows Server 2008R2 Std. instance, I wonder what is the best way to achieve this without using 3rd party appliance or hardware ?

Shall I just install Terminal Server Gateway (TSG) role in that server using self sign SSL certificate ? (access to that server using IP address).

Any kind of comments would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

Why not use a free Web based application that is secure. Logmein allows you to access the server like you would on the console. Also, this program is web based so you can access the servers from anywhere that has internet connection. There are no port needing to be opened either since it runs over port 80.

 From what I understand is that TSG can securely publish the RDP port SSL  secured using port 443. But I don't know if this is the way to go for  server monitoring from remote location with minimal hardware investment  (no Cisco hardware  or 3rd party implementation).
