Using TS web application through TS Gateway

We have a SBSe 2011 server that I have set up TS Gateway on, and a 2008 Server with  Termial Servers installed.

On the termial server I want to make applications availble to certain offsite users, I don't want them to have full access to the system via RD. I am able to redirect offsite users to full RD on the 2008 Terminal Server through the SBSe 2011 TS Gatewaye but can't work how to do it for just applications.

The TS is behind a router firewall and we only have one IP address so I need to use the TS Gateway so offsite users can access the 2008 Terminal Server for the TS Web applications. But I don't know how to do this.

Is it posible to redirect users to TS Web Application on another server through a TS Gateway Server, if it is, how do you do it?

You need to configure RDWeb to use your RD Gateway. Instructions can be found here
Configure Remote Desktop Web Connection Behavior
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc731465.aspx


To configure Remote Desktop Web Connection behavior
On the RD Web Access server, start Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager. To do this, click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager.

In the left pane, expand the server name, expand Sites, expand Default Web Site, expand RDWeb, and then click Pages.

In the middle pane, under ASP.NET, double-click Application Settings.

To change Remote Desktop Web Connection settings, modify the values in the Application Settings pane.

To configure a default RD Gateway server, double-click DefaultTSGateway, enter the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the server in the Value box (for example, server1.contoso.com), and then click OK.


To specify the RD Gateway authentication method, double-click GatewayCredentialsSource, type the number that corresponds to the desired authentication method in the Value box, and then click OK. The possible values include:

0 = Ask for password (NTLM)

1 = Smart card

4 = Allow user to select later


To configure whether the Remote Desktop tab appears on the RD Web Access Web page, double-click ShowDesktops. In the Value box, type true to show the Remote Desktop tab, or type false to hide the Remote Desktop tab. When you are finished, click OK.


To configure default device and resource redirection settings, double-click the setting that you want to modify (xClipboard, xDriveRedirection, xPnPRedirection, xPortRedirection, or xPrinterRedirection). In the Value box, type true to enable the redirection setting by default, or type false to disable the redirection setting by default, and then click OK.


When you are finished, close IIS Manager.

Your changes should take effect immediately on the RD Web Access Web site. If the Web page is open, refresh the page to view the changes.

Note  
You can also configure these settings by modifying the %windir%\Web\RDWeb\Pages\Web.config file directly by using a text editor such as Notepad.

 thanks for the reply, and that helped with where some of the settings for RDWeb are, but I must not have explained my self very well it was late at night when I did the post.

I have the RDWeb working and can access full desktop from the RDWeb to any computer on the network.

What I want to do is make "RemoteApp Programs" on our WIN 2008 Server available to users through the RDWeb page which is hosted on SBSe 2011 (the server setup as the TS Gateway). By default it comes up with the "Dashboard" program on the RDWeb page but I can not work out how to add programs that reside on the Win 2008 TS Server to the RDWeb page.

Sorry I have worked out how to add a remote program to the RDWeb page. You lodon to the RDWeb pages as an administrator and go to configuration and ad the netbios or FQDN of the server hosting the RemoteApp Program and all programs hosted by that App server appear on the RDWeb page.

while the other solution help with some of the RDWeb settings it did not provide the solution that I was actually looking for.
