Customise TS Web Access "Connection options" - Windows Server 2008

Hello,

I have installed a windows 2008 server R1 with Terminal Services.  I have enabled TS Web Access and it works well, I am now at the point of tweaking it for my staff.  What they would like is the following:  On the TS Web Access page on the Remote Desktop TAB there is a "Connect to:" box where you type the name of the computer you want to connect to.  We want this to be populated by default with the name of our terminal server.  You used to be able to do it in 2003 by editing the web page, but I can't see how to do it in 2008.  

I have attached a picture of the screen I am talking about.  Simply instead of having a greyed out "computername" in the box we want the name of our terminal server in black as though we had just typed it.

any help much appreciated.

P.S. we are not using sharepoint so please do not put solutions using it, also we have the RDP connection on the RemoteApp Programs TAB but that works over port 3389, we are aiming to use port 443 so this is the TAb we need to sort. User generated image

Thanks for your response bgoering, I will give that a go later today.  Don't worry about the ports, I am assuming that this page works the same way as SBS's Remote Web Workplace where all the RDP traffic is routed using the SSL over port 443 rather than the normal RDP port 3389.

I will let you know how I get on.

Cheers,

Tony
Hello bgoering,

That has not worked unfortunately.  The box now comes up clear, do I need to change the folowing part as well?

 onfocusin="jscript:ClearTxt(this)
scratch that, please ignore my last post
Hello bgoering,

i was editing the wrong servers file, Duh!

Now that I have edited the correct server I have found that I could only do the second part:

 class="textInputField" onfocusin="jscript:ClearTxt(this);" onblur="jscript:checkLen(this, 0);"
type="text" onkeydown="jscript:checkKey(this);" onkeyup="jscript:checkLen(this, 1);" />

R1 doe snot seem to have an entry for:

const string L_DefaultComputerNameValue_Text

And I could not find anything comparable.

However just doing the second part seems to have worked, I have tested it a couple of times and it is working well.  thank you for all your help.

Glad you got it going - I don't have a 2008 R1 server to look at, so figured it out on R2. Figured it should be pretty close.
