Remote Desktop Gateway - TS Gateway - Speed of logon

Here is the setup. All Windows Server 2008 R2

RDGW01 - Remote Desktop Gateway, RD Connection Broker, RD Dedicated Redirector

RDSH10 - RD Session Host Server
RDSH11 - RD Session Host Server              > RD Farm  - remote.domain.local
RDSH12 - RD Session Host Server

I have a GoDaddy SSL SAN Certificate installed on all servers.  I run a remote desktop connection from outside the network to the gateway.

I am pretty sure everything is setup correctly. My question is - Should it take this long to connect in to the RD Gateway?

Here are my steps:

1. Run Remote Desktop Connection - connect to "remote.domain.local" - my RD Gateway settings are in the Remote Connection.

2. From when I click "connect" it takes 23 seconds to ask me for my password.

3. It then takes 50 seconds to log me into the remote connection.

Is this a normal amount of time?

    This type of stuff is often caused by improper DNS settings where machines look at the wrong DNS when they try to authenticate the given credentials.  The DNS scheme needs to be simple, fast, quick, and efficient.

    I don't mess with any "farms" and do very little with Certificates, but I have seen this bad behavior with logons/authentication in other products that can suffer from the same problems.
