Hi All,

i am looking to setup a remote app deployment via RDS on server 2012, i have setup the following

server 1, RDLicence server on a DC
server 2, RDCB and RDWeb
server 3, RDGW
server 4, RDSH

internally we can hit the RDWeb and the apps display and run as they should.

i am getting stuck on how this works externally, if we are to hit the gateway server externally how does this know were to pass on the request for the rdweb apps as i cant see were to configure that option (am i missing something obvious?)

i can make the rdweb external facing and then i can see everything but this from what i see isnt best practice.

any help to put me on the right path would be great, thanks in advance

You have to hit RD web externally. You configure RD web to use RD gateway.

If you have applications published on RDS for internet users, you need to publish RD web on internet
To do above scenario securely, you also need to publish RD gateway server on internet and tell RD web to route request through RD gateway
Check below link
https://ryanmangansitblog.com/2013/08/07/configure-connect-to-a-remote-computer-in-rdweb-2012/

You may publish RD gateway and Rd web on same server if your security policy allows, this will save one public IP for you
Because I don't see any requirement to publish RDCB on internet just because RD web is also installed on same server
You do need two host (A) records in public DNS pointing to same server

Note that RD web tries to access RD connection broker 1st - either from internal and external network
when from external network, requests are routed through RD gateway

You do require dns records for RD web, RD gateway, RD connection broker and RDSH servers in internal DNS server
Follow below article to configure RDGW

Ensure RDGW is configured to bypass local addresses

RD-WEB provides a way to download the .rdp file
RD-Gateway provides an RDP "proxy" for an external client to reach the CB and the SH

When you add a RD-Gateway to teh farm, it "automagically" configures RD-Web to "publish" .rdp files that include the gateway.
