There are plenty of reasons to support users connecting from outside the office network. There are also plenty of ways to support them. But VPN Clients are a pain, and Direct Access requires IPv6 among other technicalities. Remote Desktop Services in Windows Server 2008 R2, however, is a simple solution you can implement today. Using RDS'€™ Remote Desktop Gateway, you can connect not just to VMs or sessions but to any computer that accepts incoming RDP connections, even from unmanaged computers. In this session, Ed Liberman explains how to use RD Gateway to enable mobile workers along with the best practices for doing so.

You will learn:

  • Learn the difference between RDS and previous Terminal Service solutions.
  • Learn how RDS can be used to provide remote solutions across the Internet.
  • See how RDS interacts with virtualization technologies.
