I posted this on SuperUser but I thought this would be the better audience. (So sorry for crossposting...)
My employer switched from vpn and rdp to using what our admin calls "rdp over https". Since that switch I find myself unable to connect to the "new" rdp server.
I think the progress is as follows:
- A rdp gateway-server is connected via tls
- the requested sever (different from the gateway-server) is then connected through the tls connection.
In windows mstsc-settings the server name is the "internal network name" of the machine I wish to connect. And on the last tab (in German it is called "leistung" - could be activity) I go to the "connection from everywhere" settings and set the gateway-server under gateway-server.
Is there any way to use this scenario under linux (apart from a virtual machine running Windows)?
I am interested in
- free ideas (e.g. is it possible to create a tls tunnel and connect through that using freerdp/rdesktop?)
- non-free ideas. As long as they work I'll worry about the costs later.
Free ideas would be better :-)
On SuperUser I got the idea to expose an ssh server and tunnel rdp through it. This is a valid idea but not feasible in my case. I really need a Idea to connect to the rdp server via the gateway-server.
