Connect using Remote Desktop Gateway

The Remote Desktop Gateway service component can tunnel the RDP session using a HTTPS channel. This increases the security of RDP connections by encapsulating the session with Transport Layer Security (TLS).

When you are connecting to a remote computer located in a closed corporate network that is inaccessible from the internet by default, RD Gateway may come helpful. In these cases, you need to set up an RD Gateway in Remotix connection options.

  1. Choose a server in the list of stored servers.
  2. Press Edit... button.
  3. Open Connection pane and set Connection type to RDP.
  4. Open RD Gateway pane.
  5. Enable Use RD Gateway.
  6. Set a host name and port number for the RD Gateway server.
  7. Enter login and password for the gateway.
    If credentials are the same for RD Gateway and the target RDP server, enable Use the same credentials option.
  8. Click Save.

If you travel to and out from the corporate network with Remotix onboard, you may want to ignore RD Gateway tunneling whenever you are in the same network with the target computer.

  1. Choose a server in the list of stored servers.
  2. Press Edit... button.
  3. Open RD Gateway pane.
  4. Enable Bypass for local connections.
  5. Click Save.

Note that you may only use RD Gateway when SSH tunneling is disabled (and vice versa).
