Hello

I have enabled TS Gatewaye on my server. Clients can RDP to from outside and authenicate against the server.

I have noticed that is if i type in the name of the server in a URL http://ts.domain.com then i get the default IIS page. Is there away to stop that I see this as secuirty hole.

I tried the server http redirect option redirecting to https://ts.domain.com/ts but this breaks the authenication.

Any ideas on how to make the Gateway more secure while still allowing it authenicate.

thank you

john

Hi,

Use URL rewrite in IIS7

i think it will not break authentication also

http://www.iis.net/download/urlrewrite

give it a try.

formula could be like
Requested URL : Matches the pattern
Using: Regular Expression
Pattern :(.*)

Logical Group

Condition : {HTTPS}
Matches the pattern
OFF$

Action Type :Redirect

Redirect URL: https://{http_host)/ts

give it a try in test lab first

The problem is i cannot redirect it. Last week I had someone scan my server. Nothing uploaded etc. I wish MS would have something about locking down the Terminal server gateway. I award you the points as no one else responded.

No answers to locking down the server.
