  • Remote Desktop Web Access / RDP from web browser

    I'm looking to set up RD Web Access on a terminal server I have built. My customer uses an older 2003 terminal server with the web connection so that they can go do IE, enter a web address and RDP to their terminal server. I installed the RD Web Access role on my 2008 term server, but can't seem to find an easy way to configure it to run just as the old 2003 web connection where I can just give them a link to use remote desktop on the 2008 term server. Do I just need to publish the RDP app, or is there an easy way to do this?

      Re: Remote Desktop Web Access / RDP from web browser

      I have already gone through that process. Just for clarification, I am on Server 2008 R2, so it is now Remote Desktop Web Access rather than Terminal Server Web Access. I'd assume it is fairly similar. When I select Apps to be available for remote, it seems like they are all set up properly. But when I access the RDWeb site internally, I don't see any of the apps listed. Is it supposed to work the same internally as it would externally? We don't have an external link available yet so I'm doing my testing from within the LAN at this point.

        "External Client Experience w/ RDS
        By Rand Morimoto on Wed, 01/06/2010 - 6:42pm.
        Andrew, thanks for the query here about what an external user would experience when launching / accessing an application using Remote Desktop Web Access! So the experience internal vs external to RD Web Access is identical, doesn't matter if the person is on the LAN or working remote, the Webpage and the application experience is the same.

        The user just needs to have IE 6 on their workstation (which could be XP, Vista, or Win7), access the webpage (obviously if external, the Webserver / page needs to be available outside the network), and the user double clicks the app and it launches. The app would be anything on the RD host server whether that is the built-in apps like Calculator or Notepad or more likely installed applications like Office 2003 / 2007, Adobe Acrobat, ERP client software, CRM software, etc.

        Because it is so seamless internal vs external with effectively the same URL in or out of the network and the same view / screen / experience for the user, it really makes it easy for a user to be "on the LAN" or "remote working from home" or "working from a kiosk or Internet cafe" that the mobility of access is extremely valuable.

        Hope this helps!"
