Trying to get an understanding of how best to add a digital certificate on a Windows 2008 R2 RemoteApp server. I have a bunch of RDP files set up on machines in the wild.

Can I just get a digital cert from GoDaddy like I would for a web site and then apply that in RemoteApp Manager for RDP files?

I was using a self-signed certificate which has since expired and causing me issues. Users are going in through https://server/rdweb....but that obviously gives cert errors as well.

Yes, you can get a certificate from any certifying authority (GoDaddy, Verisign, etc., etc.). Then install it on your server as you normally would for a website. Once that's done, go into the Remote Gateway Server properties and set it to use that certificate.

Thanks. Guess I was over-thinking it. Learned a nice lesson today about not using the self-signed cert and then putting it out in the world!
