TMG 2010 & Terminal Services

Posted on 2011-04-22

I have three servers in my small network, An SBS 2008 for Exchange and AD, an Application server for my Databases and Server 2008 SP2 with TMG 2010 as the firewall and internal protection. I have a very limited requirement for Terminal Services (3 remote clients) I am wondering if I can install Terminal Services in Application mode on the TMG box as it is a pretty powerful box with a fast SAS Raid 1+0 and 32gb of memory, and would suit. I am not concerned about the security aspects, just whether the two apps will co-exist

    Accepted Solution

    Installing RDS will, in essence, make TMG useless. They *should* co-exist, but some of the networking changes RDS makes will simply make TMG completely ineffective, so I can also say I can never see a scenario where I'd run both at the same time.
