The following procedures describe how to export RemoteApp settings from RDS, and then publish RemoteApps and import the RemoteApp settings, via Forefront Unified Access Gateway (UAG).

Exporting RemoteApp settings from RDS

Before you can publish RemoteApp applications, you must export RemoteApp settings from RDS.

To export RemoteApp settings from RDS

  1. On the RD Session Host server, click Start, click Administrative Tools, click Remote Desktop Services, and then click RemoteApp Manager.

  2. Ensure that the RemoteApp Programs list contains the programs that you want to provide to end users.

  3. In the Actions pane, click Export RemoteApp Settings.

  4. Click Export the RemoteApp Programs list and settings to a file, and then click OK.

  5. Specify a location to save the .tspub file, and then click Save.

Publishing RemoteApps and importing RemoteApp settings

This procedure describes how to publish RemoteApps via Forefront UAG, and import RemoteApp settings during the publishing process.

To publish RemoteApps and import RemoteApp settings

  1. In the Forefront UAG Management console, select the portal in which you want to publish RemoteApp applications. In the Applications area of the main portal properties page, click Add. The Add Application Wizard opens.

  2. On the Select Application page of the wizard, select Terminal Services (TS)/Remote Desktop Services (RDS). In the list, select RemoteApp.

  3. On the Configure Application page of the wizard, enter a name for the RemoteApp application.

  4. On the Select Endpoint Policies page of the wizard, do the following:

    1. In Access policy, select a Forefront UAG policy with which endpoints must comply in order to access the published RemoteApps in the portal. In Printers, Clipboard, and Drives, select access policies with which endpoints must comply in order to access these local resources during remote desktop sessions.

    2. To enable single sign-on for the session, select the Use RDS Single Sign-On (SSO) Services check box.

    3. If the trunk through which you are publishing the RemoteApp applications uses Network Access Protection (NAP) policies, and you have a Network Policy Server (NPS) configured, do the following:

      • Select Require Network Access Protection (NAP) compliance, to specify that only endpoints that comply with NAP policy can access published RemoteApps.

      • Select Require NAP compliance for RDS device redirection only, to specify that only endpoints that comply with NAP policy can access devices and resources on RDS servers, such as drives, printers, and the clipboard. Access to other resources and applications on RDS servers does not require NAP compliance.

      • Select Do not require NAP compliance, if you do not require clients to use NAP to access the published RemoteApps.

  5. On the Import RemoteApp Programs page of the wizard, do the following:

    1. In File to import, specify the location of the exported .tspub file, or click Browse to locate the file.

    2. In RD Session Host or RD Connection Broker, specify the name of an RD Session Host (if different from that specified in the imported settings file), or the name of the RD Connection Broker server.

    3. If you are using an RD Connection Broker server, in IP addresses, IP address ranges, FQDNs, or subnets, add the names of all RD Session Hosts that might be used by the RD Connection Broker. To specify multiple servers, use an IP address range or subnet.

  6. On the Select Publishing Type page of the wizard, in the Available RemoteApps list, double-click each RemoteApp that you want to publish via Forefront UAG, to add it to the Published RemoteApps list. The list of available RemoteApps is retrieved from the imported .tspub file.

  7. On the Configure Client Settings page of the wizard, specify how RemoteApps should be displayed. You can set a display resolution and color, or select to use display settings retrieved from the imported .tspub file.

  8. Complete the Add Application Wizard.
