Hello,

We are running Windows 2012R2.  A few users access their Office PC's from home using the Remote Web Workspace feature.  

Suddenly, this feature is no longer working.  I am also unable to access the server using this feature as the Administrator.

The error message is:
Remote Desktop Connection
Your Computer can't connect to the remote computer because your computer or device did not pass the Network Access Protection requirements set by your network administrator.  Contact your network administrator for assistance.

I have tried this connection from and to various workstations with the same results.  

This is the first time I have encountered this message and am unsure as to how to troubleshoot effectively.  No changes have been recently made.  SSL certificate was renewed a few weeks prior to the issue manifesting.

Any recommendations on how to address would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Real-Timer

Hi,

Have you installed the certificate on the RD Gateway? (you will get this option in the RD Gateway manager)

Thanks - I've checked the instructions but they don't jive.  Different options in SBS 2012 Essentials?

Sorry but I typically use Standard/Datacenter. In administrative tools do you see Network Policy Server? If you could send a screenshot of the administrative tools folder, that would be helpful.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

HarryHelp - your response was correct.

In Windows Essentials, the RD Gateway Manager is not available by default.  It can be made available by running the following command with Admin privileges:
dism /online /Enable-Feature:Gateway-UI

After having done so - I was able to access the UI to install the certificate, and all is working as needed.

Thank you very much!!

Regards,
Rudy
