SRV record for RDP

I'm trying to setup SRV records in W2K8R2 DNS so when a RDP session using custom port e.g. 3399 hits the DNS name it redirects to an IP depending which port is specified for each SRV record, any ideas?

Thanks

There's no way to do this natively.  You can certainly create SRV records for RDP if you wish and point them to different hosts and port numbers, but the RD client won't ever see those records.  You'd have to write a client-side app that would accept the hostname, query DNS for the RDP SRV records, filter the results by the hostname specified, then kick off the RD client using the hostname and port number given by the filtered results.  If you can get it to work, heck, maybe there's a market for that.

Thanks for the response. I would have thought the RD client would see those records when they are on the internal network because in W2K8 DNS I have created DNS entries ending in our domain name so would look internally before querying external DNS for our external domain name.
Also firewall has policy to redirect certain external IP's to internal IP to give the desired result so I know problem is with internal DNS SRV records.
The problem I had was even though I created the internal DNS "A" record then trying to create the SRV record would not work - haven't worked on SRV records a great deal to know if the syntax is correct. Any link to screenshots would be great!
I have created SRV records for our cloud based Lync service but thats because MSoft have good articles on that.

The SRV records may very well be correct, but the issue is that there's no functionality in the RD client to use those records in any way.  It simply doesn't do an SRV record lookup.  The Lync client, on the other hand, does (and has to).
