Server 2012 RemoteApp programs not working outside network.

I have a single server running Windows 2012 R2 with RD services installed. I have a public dns assigned and a UCC SSL certificate installed. I can access RDP inside and outside the network using the public dns name with full RDP desktop. However my server name is 'servername.mydomain.local' and when i create a webapp the local server name is attached to the rdp quick link so users cannot access this outside.

On server 2008 I am able to change this address when building the remoteApp. I cannot seem to do that on 2012.

I found this post that is related to my issue and followed the instructions but it did not change the computer name that the remoteApp is deploying.

RDS in 2012 really needs the broker service to be effective, and for outside access, you pretty much need to use the gateway service. While you can strong-arm RDP without it by disabling NLA and such, you can't really with remoteapp.

I found a solution on a blog that help me get the outside access using remoteApps to work. It had to do with the redirect behavior within IIS.

In IIS: IIS Sites --> Default --> RDWeb --> Pages --> Application Settings --> DefaultTSGateway:

Set that to your RD Gateway access URL.

Then restart IIS.

Your RemoteApps will then be able to find the proper gateway inbound.

When you created your collection bring up its properties and make sure the URL is specified in RD Gateway settings too. This generates the correct settings in the RDP files,

All of the steps mentioned in each post are necessary to have RemoteAPP work publicly If you have you single RDP server setup as a *.local computer name.
