Setting up a Terminal Server (2008) for external access

Medium Priority
Last Modified: 2013-11-21
Hello All,

We're thinking adding a Terminal Server for external use.    We want home/remote users to be able to connect in via TS.   From what I gather, we just need a TS Gateway and a SSL CA.   We don't have a CA server in the network so I assume we need to get a SSL certificate from a company like Verisign.  Is this all correct?

My info was gathered from here:  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc754252(WS.10).aspx#BKMK_ObtainCertTSGateway

Thank you for any input.

So the basic or advanced SSL cert from this webpage will work?
Thanks.  Just want to be sure.

i believe so - i talked to a sales rep at NS when I purchased mine - not used for TS, but for outlook via internet...
I have a basic cert...
