Hello all-

I've cleared almost all the hurdles getting my RD Web Access site functional, 
but I have one last (I hope) issue. I get to the site from external. I log into 
the site, no problem. But then when I enter the server name it won't connect. I 
get an error that the server can't be found. If I put in the WINS name or FQDN 
of the internal server to which I want to connect, I get the error that the 
server can't be found but no evidence of anything passing through TMG. If I put 
in the internal IP address of the server I get the same error and TMG shows the 
traffic with this error: 0x80074e21 FWX_E_ABORTIVE_SHUTDOWN.

I can get everything to work normally if I start from the internal network. 
Which leads me to believe that the TMG server is getting in the way some way or 
another. Does someone need to make a DNS or WINS request and is unable to do so?

I haven't been able to find much published on how to configure an RD Web Access 
site, either through TMG or through anything else. Everything seems to assume 
that you want to publish an RD Gateway site instead. I did that previously 
through our ISA server. That worked (and I guess I can do that again if I'm 
unable to get the RD Web Access site to work), but it was a bit complicated to 
set up the RD client to work with it. (Not a problem for me, but I'm thinking 
of our non-technical staff in international sites who may not have a great 
command of English-folks this solution is primarily aimed at.) So it seems to 
me that if I can just point them to a website they can use to log into our RDS 
host, that would be the best approach.
