Configure TS Gateway Settings

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

To define whether users will connect to the terminal server across a firewall through TS Gateway, you can configure TS Gateway deployment settings. For more information about TS Gateway, see the TS Gateway Step-by-Step Guide (

To configure TS Gateway settings

  1. In the Actions pane of TS RemoteApp Manager, click TS Gateway Settings. (Or, in the Overview pane, next to TS Gateway Settings, click Change.)

  2. On the TS Gateway tab, configure the desired TS Gateway behavior. You can configure whether to automatically detect TS Gateway server settings, to use TS Gateway server settings that you specify, or to not use a TS Gateway server.

    If you select Automatically detect TS Gateway server settings, the client tries to use Group Policy settings to determine the behavior of client connections to TS Gateway.


For more information about client Group Policy settings, see Using Group Policy to Manage Client Connections Through TS Gateway.

If you select **Use these TS Gateway server settings**, do the following:

1.  Configure the TS Gateway server name and the logon method.  


The server name must match what is specified in the SSL certificate for the TS Gateway server.

2.  If you want the connection to try to use the same user credentials to access both the TS Gateway server and the terminal server, select the **Use the same user credentials for TS Gateway and terminal server** check box. However, users may still receive two prompts for credentials if conflicting credentials exist from any source such as Group Policy settings, and those credentials do not work. They may also receive two prompts for credentials if default credentials are used for the connection and those credentials do not work.  
3.  If you want the client computer to automatically detect when TS Gateway is required, select the **Bypass TS Gateway server for local addresses** check box. (Selecting this option optimizes client performance.)  
    To always use a TS Gateway server for client connections, clear the **Bypass TS Gateway server for local addresses** check box.  
  1. When you finish, click OK.
