So I have an issue where I have setup a RDS environment:

  • All servers are win 2008 R2
  • RDS1 - Licensing, gateway, broker
  • RDS2,3,4 and RDS5 - Session Hosts.
  • All in a farm called Farm1.
  • I have a cert from a 3rd party trusted CA installed.

    RDP file has the correct settings, as: Internally the RDP session to using gateway sevrver settings of works and I am load balanced to different members in the farm.

    External DNS was setup to nat to the gateway server RDS1
    Firewall rules allow https to the gateway server RDS1 However external connections fail with the error:

    "Your computer can't connect to the remote computer because teh Remote Desktop Gateway server is temporarily unavailable. Try reconnecting later or contact your network administrator for assistance"

    I cant find logs on any of the servers to tell me why its failing.

    Any insight is appreciated.
