It was working ok and now looks like after some M.S. updates and reboot our remote access is not allowing us to connect to PCs on the LAN
If we go to out https://remote.company.com we are getting the "There is a problem with this website's security certificate." page, if we continue to website we get in. We can see shared folders and links and the computer we want to log into is listed, but when we try to connect to the computer we get a "This computer can't verify the identity of the RD Gateway "Remote.company.com". it's not safe to connect to servers that can't be identified. Contact network administrator for assistance

Remote desktop *requires* that there be no certificate errors. Unlike the website, which allows you to "ignore" the error and continue, the remote desktop connection provides no such bypass. Resolving the certificate error will resolve the problem.

When you first visit the site, you should be able to see specifically what about the certificate it doesn't like, such as an expired certificate or a mismatched name. That is a good place to start.

Don't check it on the server. Check it in the browser. When you have a certificate error, you are presented with an option to view the specific nature of the error. Each browser presents this option slightly differently. That will give you a *very* good indication of what is configured incorrectly.
