TS Gateway

Updated: January 5, 2012

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

Terminal Services Gateway (TS Gateway) is a role service that enables authorized remote users to connect to resources on an internal corporate or private network, from any Internet-connected device that can run the Remote Desktop Connection (RDC) client. The network resources can be terminal servers, terminal servers running Terminal Services RemoteApp programs, or computers with Remote Desktop enabled.

Aspects

The following is a list of all aspects that are part of this managed entity:

Name Description

TS Gateway Server Availability

The Terminal Services Gateway (TS Gateway) server must be available on the network and the appropriate services must be running on the TS Gateway server. The Terminal Services connection authorization policy (TS CAP) and Terminal Services resource authorization policy (TS RAP) stores must also be available, so that these policies can be evaluated to determine whether remote clients meet policy requirements. TS CAPs specify who can connect to a TS Gateway server. TS RAPs specify the internal network resources (computers) that clients can connect to through a TS Gateway server. If TS CAPs and TS RAPs are not available, the TS Gateway server will not be available for client connections.

TS Gateway Server Configuration

For remote clients to successfully connect to internal network resources (computers) through a Terminal Services Gateway (TS Gateway) server, the TS Gateway server must be configured correctly. The TS Gateway server must be configured to use an appropriate Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)-compatible X.509 certificate, and authorization policy settings must be configured correctly. Terminal Services connection authorization policies (TS CAPs) specify who can connect to the TS Gateway server. Terminal Services resource authorization policies (TS RAPs) specify the internal network resources that clients can connect to through a TS Gateway server.

TS Gateway Server Connections

For remote clients to successfully connect to internal network resources (computers) through a Terminal Services Gateway (TS Gateway) server, clients must meet the conditions specified in at least one Terminal Services connection authorization policy (TS CAP) and Terminal Services resource authorization policy (TS RAP). TS CAPs specify who can connect to a TS Gateway server and the authentication method that must be used. TS RAPs specify the computers that clients can connect to through a TS Gateway server. Note that a limit can be set on the TS Gateway server to restrict the maximum number of simultaneous client connections.
