Getting and Installing 3rd party certificate for Remote Desktop in Windows 2008 R2 Server

I've setup a Remote Desktop role(s) on a Windows 2008 R2 server.  Everything is running great and I'm wanting to change from a self-sign certificate to a 3rd party certificate.  

Where do I go to generate my CSR file?  I thought there would be a way to generate it in the RD Gateway Manager, but I'm just not finding it (just importing options or self-sign generator).

Or is a SSL certificate not what I want here?

Thanks.

Any IIS server can generate a CSR file. It does not matter that the IIS server is not the intended server for the completed certificate. Just finish processing the file you receive from the certificate provider on the IIS box and you can then export port the cert and it's private key to your gateway box.

Yes, that's right. If you use it only in your company you can use cheapest version, create your own certificate for IIS with RDP.
You can use my document, which I prepared for other user from EE

Hope it helps.
