RemoteApp - Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage

I am trying to configure RemoteApp on Windows Server 2008 R2.  

Here is my environment:

I have external domain name: mydomain.com. I have a certificate issued by GoDaddy for this domain which is installed on the server. I have created an A record in GoDaddy to point it to my public IP and on my test server I have created a forward zone that points mydomain.com to the internal IP of the server.

When I am connecting locally, I can access and open the test program. However,  when I am trying from another computer that is not part of the domain, I get the "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" message.

I suspect that something is wrong with my DNS settings, but since this is not my forte, I am not sure what. I am getting the same error if I try to connect to https://mydomain.com/rpc. I should probably add that I can ping mydomain.com from the Client.

Any help is highly appreciated.

Thank you.

I ended up fixing it by adjusting the DNS zone.

I needed to add a NS record in addition to the A record. After that everything worked as expected.
