Help with remote desktop / terminal services on 2008 R2 SP1
Posted on 2013-05-29
Having a few issues. I'll break these off into individual questions if needed. So, simple set up. A 2008 R2 SP1 server running gateway, host session, and RemoteApp. All remote desktop services, if I missed any. DNS set up. Can get to server in LAN and over Internet. Installed go daddy ssl cert. http redirected to https.
When I go to RDS.domain.com in RDP client, I'm not prompted with a security warning and connect without issue. When I got to http://RDS.domain.com, I'm redirected to https and am not prompted with any security warning. When I click a published program, nothing happens. When I click the RDP connection published app, it opens but prompts me for credentials. After entering those, I get a security warning regarding the certificate for the published app. I do not get this warning if I open rdp directly on the computer and connect.
I think I'm having an issue with the firewall (sonic wall NSA 220) as far as the app not opening. However, at one point in testing I was able to open apps without issue, but had to provide credentials twice (SSO issue based on what I have read) and accept a security warning. Nothing has changed on the firewall. The only thing I've changed is installing the cert. Any ideas on what to do on the firewall (open ports, allow something I'm not, etc.)?
I only installed the cert in IIS default website, not in RemoteApp manager or on the gateway. Should I have? If so, same cert or a new one?
Any help is greatly appreciated. Need to get this into production yesterday.
