Hi all! I have been playing around with VM's on Microsoft Azure just to try and have some Windows Services facing externally that I can play around with and test.


I have spun up a Windows Server 2012 R2 Server and installed Remote Desktop Services on it. I am looking to publish some remote apps and ideally I am looking to get it to work externally.


The Server has been given an IP address which is fine, i have gone to my domain and actually setup cloud.mydomain.co.uk and DNS for this is pointing to the IP address of the server. This is all working and functioning! 


Basically if I go onto my server and connect to the RDweb section and login, i can see my remote apps, i can download the laucher and open them, all works great! :)


If however, I go to https://cloud.mydomain.co.uk/RDWeb it asks me to login, I can then see my remote apps but when I click on them I get a certificate error similar to the one attached!


What am i missing....what do I need to do to get this to work?


Thanks! :)

Because you are using self-signed certificates, you need to export the RDGateway's certificate and import it into the Trusted Root Certification Authorities folder on the client computer you are using to connect. This link may help.
