I am just a few steps behind from completing the set up, please guide me into achieving this.
I have the following servers,
RDG - Remote Desktop Gateway
RDSH1 - Remote Desktop Session Host
WIN7CLIENT1 - Windows 7 Ent Client
Currently, the following is already done,
Setup CAP and RAP to allow specific users to connect to specific resources.
Installed RDG Certificate to the client that will be accessing RDSH1
Tested Remote Desktop Connection by using RDG as Gateway and it was successful.
My question is, this is all working fine on the same subnet (VLAN) on a test lab, now I have to place them on Production as follows,
RDG - at DMZ - yet Domain-Joined
RDSH1 - at Internal Network
WIN7CLIENT1 - on the internet
I need to the client to use RDP over HTTPS (port 443) to communicate with RDG to initiate a session (port 3389) at RDSH1.
Given that all above ports are configured in the firewall. How does the client initiate the session?
Does the external user use the same RDC Client on Windows 7? Will that initiate RDP over HTTPS? Or does he have to initiate a Remote Session through IE. Cause when I hear HTTPS I immediately think, a web browser.
And if RDC is required, the Gateway should be specified as hostname resolvable over the internet?! Right, If that so there has to be a Public DNS entry for sure, but pointing to what? A Public IP address NAT'ed through the Firewall to RDG Server?
