Remote Desktop Error on SBS 2011

Using RDC to connect into a SBS 2011 system.  I have a Draytek Vigor 2130n router at the server site.

If I RDC direct to the external WAN address I get directly onto the SBS 2011 server without issue.

If I RDC using the RD Gateway I get :

"This computer can't verify the identity of the RD Gateway remote.....etc".

I have a GoDaddy UCC SAN SSL certificate installed on the SBS 2011 server and all looks OK.

If I pick the "View Certificate" button in the error message it presents a certificate which is assigned to the Draytek 2130n and not my GoDaddy SSL certificate installed on the SBS 2011 server.

It looks like inbound RDC Gateway connections are stalling at the router with a certificate mismatch.

Can anyone enlighten me?

Thanks

Brian

I have worked this one out myself :-(.

I had the Draytek configured to allow Internet connections on SSL (port 443).  Turned that off and all works fine now.

(What a dummy :-)).
