Remote Desktop Gateway setup

This is a quick and easy guide to setup Remote Desktop Gateway in the context of a private LAN environment, so we are not concerned with a publicly signed cert as the traffic will not be exposed to the internet. In this scenario, we are making the DC the target instance and using a self signed cert.

Add the Remote Desktop Gateway service

Create a self signed cert, import this certificate into the Trusted Root Store of whatever source computers you will be connecting from.


Include the gateway itself as one of the servers 

Make sure to start the TSGateway service

Modify the RDP settings to use the gateway. Make sure to uncheck "Bypass RD Gateway server for local addresses". This is key as all traffic will be over RFC 1918 CIDRs.

Optional: create shortcut on desktop to use the above settings

Verify you can see the connection is showing up on the gateway
