RD Gateway on same server as RD server

Posted on 2011-10-25

I am getting the following error This computer can't connect to the remote computer because the Terminal Services Gateway server address requested and the certificate subject name do not match."
this is true.  The internal name of the server is test.test.local (workgroup) The GoDaddy cert is set to match this name however the external DNS name is so when we connect through the web the connection works but gives a certificate error and then fails when opening the remote app with the error above.    Is there any other solution other than the obvious one of changing the name of the internal server to   The client does not have Active Directory and I need to use the gateway for the remote app.  We do have the ability to use a second network interface.  Thanks in advance

    if you offer a remote app to an untrusted client (not authenticated or known by your AD), why trust a cert not published from your own CA ( test.test.local ) at all ?

    The users are still authenticated on the local server and ultimately we will be using AD.   I am new to the project and trying to secure it as much as possible with limited resources.
