SBS 2011 Standard Remote Desktop Connection and 2008R2 RDS service

I have a SBS 2011 standard domain.  I have a member server 2008 R2 server on the domain that has the RDS services installed.  When users login remotely,  SBS has the default remote web access area where users can get email (OWA), access folders and  their desktop computer.  All is good there.  However, I am trying to setup  the server 2008r icon that they can use to log in for terminal services to launch remote apps.  The issue is when users click on the 2008R2 server icon they are being directed to the desktop of the server itself and not the default RDweb screen where the users should be able to launch the apps that they have been granted.  How to I get the Remote desktop services default connection screen to appear by default?

Have you configured the Server 2008R2 connection icon to point to https://server_name/rdweb, replacing server_name with that of your own server as per this article?

If you just use the server name then what you describe is pretty much what happens.

Doesn't work, the RD host connector on the Terminal server only accepts domain names.  

There is no mention of how to have the icon point to that URL for all users.

Hmmm...

Try this:

Right-click on the icon and choose Edit. Click on the Advanced tab, and in the Connect from anywhere section click on Settings. Put the radio button in Use these RD Gateway server settings and in the server name field put your_server_name/rdweb. The other settings concerning logons and credentials will depend on how you've set up your RD Web Access and users. Assuming that the latter are correct, hopefully you will find that your users can access the resources they are after.
