SBS 2003 DC, with 2012 R2 Standard member server. We've purchased client licenses and RDS CAL's for the 2012 server. Trying to configure external access to the RDS server, started to configure using this link:
http://msfreaks.wordpress.com/2013/12/09/windows-2012-r2-remote-desktop-services-part-1/
but looks this is assuming the DC is 2012.
I have installed the RD Web Access, RD Gateway, RD licensing, RD Connection Broker and the RD Session Host on the 2012 member server. It looks like I was supposed to install the licensing role on the domain controller, but not sure how to do that since it's 2003.
Perhaps I should be using different instructions. I'm trying to allow users to connect to the 2012 server via a web link, will be using a GoDaddy certificate (not yet purchased or installed).
At one point someone said to just install RDS then forward port 3389 to the RDS machine, didn't work as I don't think RDS is configured correctly.
Thanks.

Okay, don't over-complicate this. The first choice you are given when setting up RDS is to use a new scenario based wizard. Use that! It'll do 99% of the work for you. Don't go trying to install roles manually. That is very prone to errors.

OK, I need specific instructions to run that wizard.

I can get back to the quick start but cannot select session based deployment, most likely because it's already installed. I'm happy to start completely over, do I uninstall all RDS components?

Or rather remove RDS roles?

The question is not really abandoned, I just have not had a chance to get back to it.

I have removed all the RDS roles, unfortunately now I can't access remotely so I'll have to go on-site and try the wizard.

I've got this configured and can login as a user to an RDS session on the server internally. They have to click on Connect to a Remote PC and enter the RD server name but I assume somewhere I can change so they can do that without the extra steps. I get an error that the RD Gateway is not available when I select a remote app, not sure why that is but I can log into the server via Connect to Remote PC.
I have installed a self-signed certificate which will be replaced with a trusted certificate.
My last question (I think) is how to access externally, my domain controller is SBS2003 and we use RWW for that. We also have 2003 terminal server that I need to keep online until this 2012 server is tested. Can I port forward to the 2012 RDS server and not be routed thru the SBS 2003 server?
