Step 2: Installing RD Gateway
Updated: February 9, 2011
Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2
To install and configure an RD Gateway server, you must add the RD Gateway role service. Windows Server 2008 R2 includes the option to install the RD Gateway role service by using Server Manager. This topic explains how to install and configure the RD Gateway role service on the RDG-SRV computer in the CONTOSO domain.
Membership in the local Administrators group, or equivalent, on the RD Gateway server that you plan to configure, is the minimum required to complete this procedure. Review details about using the appropriate accounts and group memberships at Local and Domain Default Groups (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=83477).
