However, by default, these services were only accessible from your local network.
To allow your users to access your desktops and/or RemoteApp programs from outside of your company, you will also need to install and deploy the Remote Desktop Services gateway.
To follow this tutorial, you will need :
To get started, on your second server, launch the Add Roles and Features Wizard and select the "Remote Desktop Services" checkbox in the "Server Roles" step.
Install the "Remote Desktop Gateway" role service.
In order to add the gateway to the RDS deployment, you must first add it to the list of servers to manage from the server manager of your RDS server.
To do this, on your RDS server, open the server manager and click : Add other servers to manage.
Add the server where you installed the "Remote Desktop Gateway" role service.
For that :
Then, go to the "Remote Desktop Service" section of the server manager and click on the "RD Gateway".
Select your RDS gateway, click the center arrow, and then click Add.
Specify the external domain name that your users will use to access your Remote Desktop Services from outside your company.
In our case, they will use a "rds" subdomain of our "informatiweb-tuto.net" domain.
Which gives : rds.informatiweb-tuto.net
When the deployment is complete, click on the "Configure certificate" link.
Select the "RD Gateway" role service and click "Select existing certificate".
Note : this window is also accessible via the Remote Desktop Services deployment overview by clicking Tasks -> Edit deployment properties.
In our case, we generated a certificate for free thanks to Let's Encrypt.
Since the certificate generated by this CA was in PEM (Linux) format, we converted it to "p12" (pfx) using OpenSSL.
Specify the password that you used to secure the certificate, and then check the "Allow the certificate to be added to the Trusted Root Certification Authorities certificate store on the destination computers" box.
If the certificate is valid, the level will be "Approved" and the status "OK".
Now, click on Close.
