Remote Desktop Services - testing
Posted on 2010-09-15
I am testing an implementation of Remote Desktop services in to our network. I have installed the following components using two hyperv virtual servers. One server has the remote desktop session host installed and the RD Web access installed and configured. I have configured the other virtual server to act as the Remote desktop gateway.
I have a few questions regarding the setup and security of the implementation.
1.) I have read that you should seperate the RD Web access, RD Host and gateway roles all on to different servers? Is this correct? Or does only the gateway need to be hosted on a different server?
2.) Is it necessary for the rd gateway to be in front of the firewall? Or can I have it running behind the firewall with no security issues.
I do apologize if these are silly questions but I am very new to 2008. Most of my experience comes from 2003 and Terminal services is totally different (in my opinion) on 2k3. Thank you
