Remote Desktop via Remote Web Access not Working

Last Modified: 2012-05-11

When trying to connect to a computer via the Web using Remote Web Access i get the following error.

"Your computer can't connect to the remote computer because the Remote Desktop GAteway server address requested adn the certificate subject name do not match. Contact  your network administrator for assistance."

I am confused because i am pretty sure my certificate was configured properly as i do not get certificate errors any where else. Also what is a certificate subject name ? when createing the certificate request there was little to no room for input from the user everything was autopopulated

Any hellp would be greatly appreciated, i am using sbs 2011
