Maximize Value from Microsoft Defender

In this ebook, you’ll learn why Red Canary’s platform and expertise bring you the highest possible value from your Microsoft Defender for Endpoint investment, deployment, or migration.

Because TS Gateway uses port 443 instead of 3389, by using an HTTP Secure Sockets Layer/Transport Layer Security (SSL/TLS) tunnel, it enables most remote users to connect to internal network resources that are hosted behind firewalls in private networks and across network address translators (NATs). You can configure TS Gateway servers and Terminal Services clients to use Network Access Protection (NAP) to further enhance security.


  • TS Gateway – Windows Server 2008 installed with TS Gateway role, IIS 7.0 and NAP
  • TS Client – Windows XP SP3, Vista, Vista SP1, Windows Server 2008
  • Internal Network Resource – Windows XP SP2/3, Vista, Vista SP1, Windows Server 2003 SP1/2, Windows Server 2008
  • You must obtain an externally trusted SSL certificate for the TS Gateway server if you do not have one already.

Key Takeaways

Terminal Services in Windows Server 2008 offers many new features that allow the users to easily connect to their desktops from anywhere, or just specific applications that are being made available by the administrator, all with much-improved performance and user experience.
