Setting up a Terminal Server (2008) for external access

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:

Thank you for any input.

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