3. Configure Clientless RDP Connections
To configure the Clientless RDP connection, you can download an RDP file from the application on the RD web. The information from this file is needed to set up the connection.
From the menu where you can configure the gateway, click on “New connection” at the top.
From there, you will need to provide the information you got from the RDP file.
Configure new connection:
- Name: Give the connection a name
- Server address: This should be the internal server address
- Port: The port field is the port where the RDP server is listening on, usually 3389. This parameter is optional. If this is not specified, the default of 3389 will be used.
When filled in, it should look something like this:
Optional you choose if the background from the RDP connection is enabled.
To manage the connections to a Gateway, open the Gateway via “Clientless RDP”, select the Gateway from the overview and click “Open” from the action bar.
If you want to make an specific app available from this connection, fill in the “Remote app” section. Fill in the program name. Make sure to place “||” in front of the published program name (e.g. ||Afas, ||Resource and Performance Monitor etc.).
The Work directory field: fill in here the location where the specified application in the Program field is (e.g. C:\PublishedApps\ or C:\Windows\System32\)
Optional is to configure Parameters to remote app the connection.
Terminal server gateway
To support the connections from a app and/or desktop connection on a Terminal Server, you can add the Gateway settings to this section. As first you fill in your hostname of the RDS/Terminal Server gateway.
Optional is the port to connect to. By default 443 is used. If you use this port, the field can be let empty. It is also possible to configure a domain and loadbalance info for this gateway.
You can retreive this info by downloading and editing the .rdp file on your pc.
To edit or delete existing connections of the gateway, select a connection from the overview and choose the action from the action bar.
Note: When a connection is deleted, the created app will still be available from apps management and the user’s dashboard. Only the link to the connection is removed. This will result in an error when opening the app. To enable the correct usage off the app, choose the correct connection from the dropdown in apps management.
