Step 6: Verifying NAP Health Policy Functionality on the RD Gateway Server

Updated: February 9, 2011

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

To verify the functionality of the RD Gateway deployment, complete the following steps:

  • Install the SSL certificate for the RD Gateway server on the CONTOSO-CLNT computer.

  • Configure the CONTOSO-CLNT computer as a Network Access Protection (NAP) enforcement client for the RD Gateway server.

  • Log on to CONTOSO-CLNT as Morgan Skinner and use Remote Desktop Connection (RDC) to verify that the NAP health policy is successfully applied to the Remote Desktop Services client computer.

    • Test for a successful allowed connection to the RD Session Host server (RDSH-SRV) by using the RD Gateway server (RDG-SRV).

    • Test for a successful blocked connection to the RD Session Host server (RDSH-SRV) by using the RD Gateway server (RDG-SRV).

  1. Log on to CONTOSO-CLNT as CONTOSO\Administrator.

  2. Open the Certificates snap-in console as follows:

    1. Click Start, click Run, type mmc and then click OK.

    2. On the File menu, click Add/Remove Snap-in.

    3. In the Add or Remove Snap-ins dialog box, in the Available snap-ins list, click Certificates, and then click Add.

    4. In the Certificates snap-in dialog box, click Computer account, and then click Next.

    5. In the Select Computer dialog box, click Local computer: (the computer this console is running on), and then click Finish.

    6. In the Add or Remove snap-ins dialog box, click OK.

  3. In the Certificates snap-in console, in the console tree, expand Certificates (Local Computer), and then click Trusted Root Certification Authorities.

  4. Right-click the Trusted Root Certification Authorities folder, point to All Tasks, and then click Import.

  5. On the Welcome to the Certificate Import Wizard page, click Next.

  6. On the File to Import page, in the File name box, click Browse, and then browse to the location where you copied the SSL certificate for the RD Gateway server. From the file type drop-down list, select All Files (*.*). Select the certificate RDG-SRV.cer, click Open, and then click Next.

  7. On the Certificate Store page, accept the default option (Place all certificates in the following store - Trusted Root Certification Authorities), and then click Next.

  10. After the certificate import has successfully completed, a message appears that confirms the import was successful. Click OK.

  11. With Certificates selected in the console tree, in the details pane, verify that the correct certificate appears in the list of certificates on the CONTOSO-CLNT computer.

The Remote Desktop Services NAP client configuration command (Tsgqecclientconfig.cmd) performs the following tasks to configure the Remote Desktop Services client computer as a NAP enforcement client computer:

  • Adds the RD Gateway server name to the Trusted Server list on the client computer.

  • Starts the Network Access Protection Agent service and sets the service startup type to Automatic.

  • Enables the RD Gateway Quarantine Enforcement client.

You have successfully deployed and demonstrated the functionality of RD Gateway on Remote Desktop Services by connecting to an RD Session Host server by using RD Gateway with an authorized remote user account by using Remote Desktop Connection. You can also use this deployment to explore more capabilities of Remote Desktop Services through additional configuration and testing.

You have verified NAP health policy functionality on the RD Gateway server. For additional information, proceed to Appendix A: Configuring RD Gateway Clients as Network Access Protection Enforcement Clients.
