2008 TS Web Access Certificate Issue

When I go to connect to a remote app, I get an error saying "This computer can't connect to the remote computer because the certificate authority that generated the Terminal Services Gateway server's certificate is not valid. Contact your network administrator for assisstance."

I then view the cert, install it to the trusted certificate authority root on the local machine and I still can't connect.  On the ts server I'm only running, AD for local login purposes and then iis and ts.  I am not using a ts gateway either, for these purposes I'm just using a ddns client.  What am I missing?  I attached a screen of the error.

If your running ad on your TS then it is a DC. Are you trying to access it with a domain administrator account? It will not let a normal non admin user log on to a dc.

It's not a matter of logging in,  the 2 users that need to log in locally are admins and the remote users are in the remote desktop users and allowed to log in via ts through secpol.  The issue is that it comes up that the cert isn't from a trusted ca, after I add it to the root folder via the install wizard it still will not let me use remote apps.  It I go through remote desktop and type in the address rather than the remote desktop on the remote apps page it allows me to continue without the trusted cert.  I would rather it all just work correctly

What address you are talking about?

Please elaborate.

Rather than going through the direct connection remote desktop app on the remote app home page, it will allow you to not use the cert if you click on the remote desktop button on top and the manually type in the ip or fqdn to connect to the computer remotely.

Also Shree,  I have tried several methods of importing the cert and I continue to get the same results.

Alright, I just ended up disabling the require server authentication and negating the use of the cert altogether for now to get the connection going.  Thank you for the help guys
