Ryan Mangan's IT Blog

What is a Remote Desktop Gateway

A Remote Desktop Gateway Server enables users to connect to remote computers on a corporate network from any external computer. The RD Gateway uses the Remote Desktop Protocol & the HTTPS Protocol to create a secure encrypted connection.

A 2012 RD Gateway server uses port 443 (HTTPS), which provides a secure connection using a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) tunnel.

A Remote Desktop Gateway Provides The following Benefits:

  • Enables Remote Desktop Connections to a corporate network without having to set up a virtual private network (VPN).
  • Enables connections to remote computers across firewalls.
  • Allows you to share a network connection with other programs running on your computer. This enables you to use your ISP connection instead of your corporate network to send and receive data over a remote connection.
