remote desktop services server external DNS and FQDN
Posted on 2013-05-17
I built a 2008 R2 server for RDS. I named it RemoteBR.domain.local. This was about 3 months ago. Just getting back to this, I had the company which manages our external DNS add rds.domain.com to DNS and pointed it to the public IP of the RDS server. When I go to rds.domain.com, I can't connect. I suspect I need to change the FQDN of the RDS server somewhere in the RDS settings, or somewhere else, or something. I am new to RDS and it's associated DNS settings, but our current terminal server on 2003 is named ts.domain.local and our current DNS is remote.domain.com, and it works, so I'm not sure where to go from here.
To note, I can get to it internally by the FQDN and LAN IP address and externally by the public IP.
Thanks for any guidance.
