14.2.19 Terminal Services Gateway Server Protocol

The Terminal Services Gateway Server Protocol (as specified in [MS-TSGU]) is based on the Remote Procedure Call Over HTTP Protocol, as specified in [MS-RPCH].

The Terminal Services Gateway Server Protocol enables authorized remote users to connect to terminal servers and remote desktops (remote computers) on the corporate network from any Internet-connected device that is running Remote Desktop Connection (RDC) 6.0.

The Terminal Services Gateway Server Protocol uses RDP tunneled over Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) to help form a secure, encrypted connection between remote users on the Internet and the remote computers on which their productivity applications run, even if the remote users are located behind a network address translation (NAT) Traversal-based router.

The Terminal Services Gateway Server Protocol eliminates the need to configure legacy Virtual Private Network (VPN) connections, thus enabling remote users to connect to the corporate network through the Internet. At the same time, this protocol provides a comprehensive security configuration model that enables the remote users to control access to specific resources on the network.
