I am suddenly getting a server error when attepting to access https://domain.org/Remote
Server Error in '/Remote' Application.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Runtime Error
Description: An application error occurred on the server. The current custom error settings for this application prevent the details of the application error from being viewed remotely (for security reasons). It could, however, be viewed by browsers running on the local server machine.

Details: To enable the details of this specific error message to be viewable on remote machines, please create a <customErrors> tag within a "web.config" configuration file located in the root directory of the current web application. This <customErrors> tag should then have its "mode" attribute set to "Off".


<!-- Web.Config Configuration File -->

<configuration>
    <system.web>
        <customErrors mode="Off"/>
    </system.web>
</configuration>
 

Notes: The current error page you are seeing can be replaced by a custom error page by modifying the "defaultRedirect" attribute of the application's <customErrors> configuration tag to point to a custom error page URL.


<!-- Web.Config Configuration File -->

<configuration>
    <system.web>
        <customErrors mode="RemoteOnly" defaultRedirect="mycustompage.htm"/>
    </system.web>
</configuration>
 

This was working a week ago, but now nothing I do seems to make a differnence. I ran through the setup wizards again, and have a SSL Cert bound to the Default Web site, but still the error. Any ideas on how to proceed?

If you used the wizard (internet address) to set this up your access would be https://remote.yourdomain.com. You would have an A record for remote pointing at your external serverIP?
Is that how you set it up?
Please run the BPA for ll common issues.

Hope that helps,

Thanks Olaf - The BPM showed me a couple of issues, specifically I was using .Net2 instead of .Net4.
That said, probably a new issue, but I get an error when running the Pconfig.exe program to manually upgrade the SharePoint services (which by the way, shuts off the Remote Desktop Gateway service when running and doesn't turn it back on)
