RDP server giving the local machine certificate and not the SSL certificate
Posted on 2013-11-19
Here is the setup
2008 terminal server
machine internal name rdp.abc 192.168.1.10
External DNS rdp.abc.com 188.8.131.52
firewall routes ports to terminal server
I have imported the certificate into the terminal server in mmc ( add snap-in certificates, computer account). I go into certificates > Remote Desktop> certificates and see the certificate in there.
I go into RemoteApp Manager and look at Digital Signature Settings and see it is green check signing as : rdp.abc.com
When I go and try to connect from external It prompts me for user/password then gives me the error:
The identity of the remote computer cannot be verified. Do you want to connect anyway?
Name in the certificate from the remote computer:
The certificate is not from a trusted certifying authority
Why is it using the internal certificate and not the SSL certificate that is installed?
I have rebooted several times
Searches on Google are not giving any tips...
I have the option to connect despite these certificate errors, but I don't want to. I want it to give the correct SSL ( rdp.abc.com) for the session.
