About this guide

This step-by-step guide walks you through the process of setting up a working RemoteApp source accessible by using Web Access für Remotedesktop in a test environment. During this process, you will create a test deployment that includes the following:

  • An Web Access für Remotedesktop server

This guide assumes that you previously completed the Installing Remote Desktop Session Host Step-by-Step Guide (, and that you have already deployed the following (if you have previously configured the computers in the Installing Remote Desktop Session Host Step-by-Step Guide, you should repeat the steps in that guide with new installations):

  • An RD-Sitzungshost server

  • A Remote Desktop Connection client computer

  • An Active Directory domain controller

This guide includes the following topics:

The goal of customizing Web Access für Remotedesktop is to provide users with a customized Web portal specific to your organization. Additionally, you can use Windows® SharePoint® Services to integrate Web Access für Remotedesktop into an existing Windows SharePoint site.

Technology review

Web Access für Remotedesktop is a role service in the Windows Server 2008 R2 operating system that enables users to access RemoteApp-Programme, session-based remote desktops, or virtual desktops from Web sites. By default, the Web Access für Remotedesktop Web site enables you to point to RD-Sitzungshost servers or RD-Sitzungshost server farms to populate the list of RemoteApp-Programme that appear on the site. If you have multiple RD-Sitzungshost servers or multiple RD-Sitzungshost server farms, you can create a single Web access point for RemoteApp-Programme, session-based remote desktops, and virtual desktops.

The Web Access für Remotedesktop role service and Windows SharePoint Services must be installed on the same computer.

Scenario: Customizing Remote Desktop Web Access by Using Windows SharePoint Services in a test environment

We recommend that you first use the steps provided in this guide in a test lab environment. Step-by-step guides are not necessarily meant to be used to deploy Windows Server® features without additional deployment documentation and should be used with discretion as a stand-alone document.

Upon completion of this step-by-step guide, you will have customized an Web Access für Remotedesktop Web portal that is using Windows SharePoint Services. You can then test and verify this functionality by opening the Web portal as a standard user.

The test environment described in this guide includes four computers connected to a private network using the following operating systems, applications, and services.


Computer name Operating system Applications and services


Windows Server 2008 R2

Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS), DNS


Windows Server 2008 R2



Windows® 7

Remote Desktop Connection


Windows Server 2008 R2

The computers form a private network and are connected through a common hub or Layer 2 switch. This step-by-step exercise uses private addresses throughout the test lab configuration. The private network ID is used for the network. The domain controller is named CONTOSO-DC for the domain named The following figure shows the configuration of the test environment.
