Updated: January 5, 2012

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

red

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.

Verify

To verify that the TS Gateway server is configured correctly, examine Event Viewer logs and search for the following event messages. These event messages indicate that the Terminal Services Gateway service is running, and that clients are successfully connecting to internal network resources through the TS Gateway server.

To verify that the TS Gateway server is configured correctly:

  1. On the TS Gateway server, click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Event Viewer.
  2. In the Event Viewer console tree, navigate to Application and Services Logs\Microsoft\Windows\TerminalServices-Gateway, and then search for the following events:
