How to direct RemoteApps from one RDWeb server to another RDWeb server so that users only see ONE "Remote IP" when launching application?


  • Hi Everyone,

    I have two Windows 2008 R2 servers. Both have RDWeb and RDSH installed. Both have RemoteApps. However, only one has a public SSL certificate. I want the applications to load from one RDWeb and behave like they were installed on one server so that I can use the same directory structure and same useranme/passwords.

    What do I need for this? I would rather stay away from session broker. Below is the problem I am facing using pictures. It's the two different IPs that I am seeing:

  • Hi,

    Thanks for your post.

    You may purchase one SAN certificate or wildcard certificate from the public issuer.  In order to get rid if this warning message, please refer to the following blog. Hope it helps.

    “Unknown Publisher”? Where did this dialog box come from?

    Best Regards,

  • 1- I have a 2nd certificate that is not a SAN certificate. Can I use that? Or would that be a problem still because we are browsing to another site?

    2- Would two separate certificates work fine if the users were only using RemoteApp .rdp shortcuts instead of RDWeb?

    3- Is there any way to not get asked for Username/Password again without a publicly issued Certificate? Right now I am getting asked for Username/Password again because SSL certificate is not public. I have another server with SSL certificate and that doesn't ask username/password again.
