How To - Remote Desktop Services RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm currently setting up a Remote Desktop server (VM I spun up with Windows Server 2012 R2), and I'm looking to make it a terminal server for employees out in the field (we're a construction company).

    Can anyone link a good guide on how to accomplish this? I think I've got most of it down, but I'm wanting them to be able to type a domain name under mstsc.exe (remote desktop connection) to connect over the internet. I'm assuming this involves some records on the domain and a NAT policy configuration?? Port forwarding? Anyhow, any help would be great.

    Here is another (single server):

  • Hi,

    To achieve your goal, you need deploy RDS Gateway first.

    For detailed information, you could refer to the article below.

    In order to resolve the domain name, you could configure port forwarding for forward port 443 traffics to the gateway server.

    Best Regards,
