Creating a single sign on page into our corporate network


I am looking for a solution that will allow our users to gain access from any internet connected device to gain access to our network.

Ideally I would like a scenario whereby a user connected to the internet goes to a website perhaps hosted within our network. The user will login with secure credentials and gain access to SharePoint and our terminal server - can this be done?

We have a Cisco firewall that is great but we find users connecting from hotels etc sometimes cannot get VPN access and also users with different devices without a Cisco client needing to do work - these dives might not necessarily be company equipment,so I am looking for other solutions....

Any help greatly appreciated.

you can use RDS - Remote desktop services with the Web Components to publish applications
you can use UAG which combines element of RDS and published websites to allow a SSO and gain access to other resources

if you give an idea of what scope you have i.e. budget, licenceing, hardware etc then i could give some more details

Hi Thanks

Just looking for a solution so that I can get funding for this project right now... would appreciate further details.
UAG is a bit of a finicky and irritating product but when its working its fine it would do all you need
http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/server-cloud/forefront/unified-access-gateway.aspx here is a good starting point for MS

if you use UAG you would need RDS as well - is your terminal services up to 2008R2?

RDS Web Gateway is a lot simpler and easier to implement and support and you could just publish remote desktop, IE and some office apps which would give all the access you want


that should be enough to get you started
