Today as a test I setup the RDS role , I am able to go to the RD web access and use the deployed apps, like word, excel, acrobat, QB ect...

RD Web Access
Here are my questions,
While I can remote into the TS Server from an outside computer, meaning a computer that is not on the same network and when I log in as the user I like to know when I log in to the RD web access I came across this ( see below)
connect to a remote pc
See how on the right side it say ( connect to a remote PC )
I can't seem to get that on my deployment, how can I get it to say that so that I can use that function.
Also like I said I can access the RD web access, but only internally. I want to be able to allow users to do this over the internet by typing in the url, can this be done and if so how?

Thank you all in advanced.

IIRC only IE can see that. Plus the RDWeb needs to be in the Trusted Sites zone and possibly Compatibility Mode depending on the IE version.

Because support for this feature is not available to other browsers we publish mstsc.exe in RDWeb for users that require desktop access (if the .RDP file was not published to them via RSS feature or other means).

I used IE and was able to see the Connect to a Remote Desktop part.
