I have a setup with one 2012 R2 DC and one 2012 R2 RDS server.
The DC is also a RDS Gateway.

The DC hold a share for folder redirection and one share for roaming profile.

When I try to login from the internet via RDS Gateway, The session report an event 20499 sayning that it had problems loading roaming profile because of a slow connection.

I do not get this error when I try to log on the RDS Host directly.
I have even tried to logon with VPN to my firewall, and then open the RD connection directly to the RDS server.....no error.

But When I try to go via the RDS Gateway, it tells me that a slow link has been detected.

I have uninstalled antivirus on both DC and RDS....but that did not solve the problem.

I don't have a "smoking gun" solution for you, but hopefully it will be a little helpful for you to know that I have the exact same problem (and therefore that you are not alone).  Out of curiosity, was your Active Directory domain on the affected servers originally configured with a .local extension?

I ask that because, in my case, I believe these exact errors are being caused because I *did* originally configure my Active Directory domain with a .local extension.  For many versions of Windows Server, doing that was fine, and even recommended.  However, it now appears that a .local domain extension is incompatible with Remote Desktop Services on Windows Server 2012 (R1 & R2).

The best explanation of the .local vs. 2012 RDS issue can be found here:  http://www.concurrency.com/blog/rds8-gateway-and-certificates-on-windows-server-2012/  Specifically, look at the comments section of that web page, about 3/4's of the way down.  Start at "pesos's" comment from about January 2013, and all comments after that, especially "Private Joker's" subsequent comments.

I hope this helps you.  If not, of course I may be wrong about all this, and in that case, I would love for someone more knowledgeable than me to point that out :)
