"Remote Computer could not be found" On apps published with Windows 2012 Terminal Server

I have just installed and configured windows 2012 R2 with terminal services role deployed on it, I have published some apps and they work just fine internally, however when I click on them via the internet they don't work. I get the message "Remote Computer could not be found" so as I looked on the connection file created once you click on the app, it is pointing to the local name of the server ts1.localdomain.local, how can I tell Terminal Server to publish the apps with the public IP address?

Thank you all

There is no supported way to do that. But if you have a gateway in your deployment and have set a public FQDN for the gateway, that will be included in the published app's .rdp file and any RDP client that can use a gateway will properly connect to your internal server via the gateway.

Use server manager, set the name, get th certificates, and then configure your domain with the ddns service you choose to use. Since it requires a certificate, you'll be using a custom DNS name, which excludes most (if not all) free ddns providers and their limited list of free sub domains.

If I setup a gateway with a ddns name and them later decide to have a real A record, will I be able to delete the gateway and re-do it without any major problems?
