Remote access RDS Server

Environement: Windows 2008 R2 RDS Server

Hello,

I am looking for a product that I will install on my Windows 2008 R2 RDS Server so users will be able to access their RDS sessions remotely

Something like LogMeIn or Teamviewer that supports a multiuser RDS environment

Unfortunately I cannot give remote acces to the RDS server because of strong firewall rules

That is the reason I though someting like LogMeIn or Teamviewer would be a perfect solution but it should support a multi user environment (so every RDS remote user will be able to connect to its own RDS session)

Someone can help me ?

Thank you very much

Most of the time a gateway server is used so that users use the gateway server to be able to access the network remotely.

I don't know of any remote tools that support multiple sessions.

But any Gateway server will require changes on the firewall to allow incoming connexions, isnt it ?
The problem is that my firewall do not allow any incoming connexions and I am looking for an alternative solution without having to change the firewall
Even TeamViewer or LogMeIn would need ports to be opened on the firewall for the connections to work!! Moreover, on a corporate level, these products might not be right for you and they may turn out to be a headache; see this: http://superuser.com/questions/353754/teamviewer-listening-on-port-80-and-5938-by-default-why

On the other hand, Windows 2008 R2 can cater for your need by setting up RD Gateway and RD session host, etc...
DO you mean I can install Windows 2008 R2 RD Gateway and RD session host and set up remote accès without opening port 3389 on the Firewall ?

My problem is that I cannot open port 3389 on the Firewall, my ISP do not allow me to open any incoming port

Also I did install sucessfully LogMeIn in many machines (XP,7, Server 2008....) and it works fine without opening any port in the firewall

I only have problem with the RDS/TSE server

Thank you again
Nope; with RD Gateway you are providing your internet users access to internal resources through HTTP SSL/TLS. Which means the communication will be encapsulated within port 443. See this: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc731150.aspx.
However, if you still have many restrictions then you can stick with TeamViewer or LogMeIn.
But I do not know if TeamVIewer or LogMein allows multiuser configuration to access multiple sessions in the RDS Server. Is it?

Or any other solution you may know about ?

Thanks
