Redirect to the Remote Web Access pages (/RDWeb)


If you have published Remote Desktop Web Access out of the box, and you visit
http(s)://<url for remote desktop web access>, you’ll be presented with the IIS welcome page:
IIS Welcome page

To prevent this you need to redirect the root to /RDWeb.

On the RD Web Access server(s) open Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager (it’s under Administrative Tools).
Expand the tree and click Default Web Site, then open the “HTTP Redirect” app:
HTTP Redirect
Fill in the redirect path, don’t forget to check “Only redirect requests to content in this directory”, and click apply.

That’s it. No need to reset IIS. This is tested to be working on Windows 2012 and Windows 2012 R2 versions of RD Web Access.

As an added bonus, HTTP requests are redirected to HTTPS as well.
