RDS Remoteapp in a SBS 2008 environment

We have SBS 2008 and a separate Windows 2008 R2 server for our accounting. I bought RDS Remoteapp licenses for our accounting server. We have users that need to get access to the accounting software outside our network. SBS 2008 already has a TS Gateway setup but no Remoteapp setup; it has to be done separately, if you want it setup. Can I have one TS Gateway (SBS 2008) and one RD Gateway (Accounting) on the same network, or is that going to cause problems with the SBS 2008? I know SBS is very touching (and that's saying it lightly).

Can I configure Accounting server to use SBS server as the TS Gateway instead of configuring a new? If I can, how do I do that?

I also can't access my Accounting server through RWW; it shows up in the Computer List window, but I can't log into it remotely. Is there a way to fix that as well?

You need to configure Terminal Services (remote desktop) on the additional server ONLY


SBS 2008 is configured for Remote Desktop for Administration and TS Gateway during setup. However, it is not supported to install the Terminal Services role on the SBS server due to security, performance, and reliability purposes. Even though the installation of the Terminal Services role will not fail, you will receive the following error in Terminal Services Configuration when attempting to change the licensing mode from Remote Desktop for Administration to any other mode:
