Unable to connect to Remote Desktop Services on Server 2008 R2
Posted on 2010-08-17
Thanks in advance for your assistance!
I have installed Server 2008 R2 for Remote Desktop Services and am having a bit of trouble getting the RemoteApp or Remote Desktop Gateway functioning, but it is not clear why.
Here is what has happened so far:
First off, I purchased a SSL certificate from GEO Trust, installed it on the RD server and imported it into the RD Gateway Manager SSL Certificate configuration properties.
In the Session Host Configuration, I selected the certificate in the RDP-TCP properties.
In RemoteApp Manager, both the RD Session Host Server and the RD Gateway are set with “server.domain.com”, which is the name on my SSL certificate. (On the Digital Signature tab, the correct name is listed as digital signed.)
When I attempt to connect to the RDWeb server I am able to login both internally and externally, and the list of programs display, but when I attempt to run anything I get the message that says “Your computer can’t connect to the remote computer because an error occurred on the remote computer that you want to connect to. “
I cannot locate any information in any event logs. Maybe because the information is stored elsewhere?
Does anyone have a suggestion please as to where I should check first to try and fix this?
Thanks very much for your kind consideration.
