rd web access: only remoteapps work,

Hi,

Just configured remote access.  I have all remote roles installed and configured.  I can publish and run remote apps but I cannot use the remote desktop section of the site to connect to computers on my network.  It just keep prompting for me to logon with a logon failed message every time.

Port 3389 is open on firewall and I tested to see if direct rdp works and it does.

Any suggestions?

You have two options:

1. Put each machine in public DNS, give static NAT and open up port 3389 to each machine

2. Install and configure Remote Desktop Gateway, which will accept https connections from the Internet and then send the connections to the destination server over 3389.

I have all roles installed on the one server with external access through some NAT rules on my router.  Do I need to have two seperate machines for this to work?

No, you can do it on one without any further requirements.

You do need to configure BOTH a RD CAP and RD RAP.

I had to get help from Microsoft support on this one.  It turns out that when rdweb is installed on the same server as exchange they both fight with authentication.  Exchange will disable windows authentication in the iIS directory rdweb needs.   The fix was to go into the exchange owa settings and change an authentication setting (I forget where and which one) I'll check tomorrow and post with some more details.
