RDP Computer NameRD Gateway Server option in Remote Desktop

I have a MAC and like to connect to the computer that is part of SBS2011 Network.
On Windows desktop/laptop computers, I can use Remote desktop program and enter "Server Name / remote.DomainName.com" (see above) and enter "workstation name" in Computer field (see above) and connect to any computer on the SBS2011 network directly.

However when I look at Remote desktop connection program, I do not see RD Gateway Option.
Is there another product (that I can buy or get it for free) that has the RD Gateway option?

The Microsoft RDP client for Mac does not support RDgateway so you aren't wrong there, nor did you overlook anything. There is an app in the apple store called iTap RDP that does support RDGateway though.

iTap RDP seems to support MAC. If I can't find any other FREE product, I will buy this one.

I tried RDP to TS/RDP to Workstation. It works pretty well.
One drawback ... once I am connected to the workstation, I don't see the local printer.
When I connect to TS first, I can see my local printer. But once I connect to the workstation from the TS session, I loose the local printer.
Is this expected?
