Simple Remote Desktop Services Installation
Posted on 2012-03-26
I need to setup a simple remote desktop services system. There is one piece of hardware that the RDS software will reside. The OS is Windows 2008 R2 Standard Edition.
Basically I have one application that I need to make available via "Web Access". Users will not be using the "Remote Desktop Connection" or running any virtual desktops. One published app via web access only.
From what I can tell the only "roles" I need are the "Session Host" and "Desktop Web Access". I should be able to use a public IP pointed to the internal site for use outside our firewall.
I did get the Gateway working but that just connects me to a terminal session. Again, users will not be using terminal sessions - only a published app (via web access). Can I remove the gateway - is it needed for my requirements?
I do have the application published and it works (inside the firewall) - am I on the right track?
