  3. Release a public preview of RDS modern infrastructure

    The current RD gateway is cumbersome to set up for session hosts on highly segregated networks. At Ignite, they said there should be a public preview available during the first quarter of this year. Is it coming soon? Or can you add me to the private preview? :)

  6. Support for redundant rdweb gateway configuration with Azure AD Application proxy

    It isnot possible to run a fully redundant Azure AD Application Proxy setup with SSO Enabled for rdweb. The Webservise is not supported to run under a user account, this would resolve the spn issue for kerberos tickets.

  8. Single Sign on with RDS Web

    Hi when using Remote Desktop Services web interfaces, it always presents a login dialog. This should not be needed when I am in the domain or when using bearer token based flows allowing us to seamlessly host in iframe it inside existing applications for integrations..

    The currently documented single sign on work after this first logon
    - to logon to other servers
    - to download a rdp file and execute remote app.

    Is there a way to integrate with 'Single Sign On' as documented here: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/enterprise-mobility-security/how-to-enable-single-sign-on-for-my-terminal-server-connections/ba-p/246523?

    A preferred option is to allow integration to using a oauth flow with…

  11. Duplicate connection option

    Have the option to duplicate a connection. This way if you only have an ip change you don't have to input everything over and over.

  14. Allow for better separation of Collections.

    Currently, all icons show up for all collections unless restricted. You can sort collection icons by folder for rdweb, but they all show up in RemoteApp and Desktop Connections. An example is I have a test server and a production server in separate collections, but people have access to both. I have to label the test icons differently and there are limitations in what will display. I would like to have the ability to have a separate web page or list for each collection, making them appear as if I had set up two distinct RDS farms. To do that…

  19. Possibility to open the .rdpw file without the /u: parameter.

    Hi,

    Since update RemoteDesktop1.2.1186.0x64 of the Remote Desktop Client, it seems that the /u: parameter is required for launching an application. If you dont provide the /u: parameter the Remote Desktop client will crash and bugs out.

    This looks like an severe bug in the latest versions of the Remote Desktop Client. It is working as expected in the RemoteDesktop1.2.1104.0x64 version but this version can no longer be downloaded.

    Can this be fixed?

    Thanks.

  20. Support extended ascii characters, UTF-8 for passwords

    NPS currently doesn't (still since 2008....) support Extended Ascii characters for passwords. There is also a note about this in the documentation: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/networking/technologies/nps/nps-best-practices
    Now that the complexity of passwords get more important and the world not only exists ending at the borders of the USA, I think it's about time to add support for extended ascii or even correct UTF-8 for passwords.
    The list of not supported characters is very long, for example all accented letters like éàñ, or umlaut character from the German language, or currency signs like € £.
    Thanks for adding support.
    Patrick
