Remote Desktop Services Web Access is a great feature that administrators can use to publish hosted applications to users around the world.

For some advanced users, you can customize the applications that can be accessed within the scope of user rights through Group Policy, and perform more detailed control. When users access ports in the enterprise network, different users according to them Permissions will show different applications.

To establish a remote desktop service web access port, there are several requirements to be met in advance:

●The role of installing Remote Desktop Services.

● There must be a server running the roles of Remote Desktop Session Host and Remote Desktop Connection Broker, both of which are installed through the Server Manager of Windows Server 2008.

●Installation of Remote Desktop Web Access Role Service

First, deploy the correct code to the server hosting the portal. The following steps will install the Remote Desktop Web Access role service:

Configuring RemoteApp and Desktop Connection Properties

At this point, you need to configure the relevant properties for the remote application on the connection proxy server. It allows the web access server and the server hosting the remote desktop service to exchange and exchange connection and session information.

1. On the Remote Desktop Connection Proxy Server, click “Start”>“Administrative Tools”>“Remote Desktop Services”>“Remote Desktop Connection Manager&rdquo ;

2. In the panel on the left side of the interface, click on the node at the top, then click on “Properties” in the panel on the right.

3. Define the display name and connection ID in the "Connection Settings" tab.

4. Navigate to the "Remote Desktop Web Access" tab and type the full DNS address for the Remote Desktop Web Access Server in the Server Name text box.

5. Click the “Add” button, then click “Apply”, and finally “OK”.

Adding the App to the RemoteApp List

The final step is to add an app to the user you are accessing. This process is quite simple:

1. On the session host, click “Start”>“Administrative Tools>>“Remote Desktop Services>>“RemoteApp Manager&rdquo ;

2. In the operation panel, click “Add RemoteApp Program", and click “Next” in the wizard introduction page.

3. Select the program you want to add to RemoteApps from the list. The dialog box displays all the entries in the All User Start Menu folder, or you can click the “Browse” button and specify some applications that are on disk.

4. Click “Next”, view the settings, then click “Complete”.

Once everything is done, users can access the portal, they can click on the icon of the application they want to run, and their sessions and connections will be created automatically. At this point, the application runs on the server side. This is a controlled environment where the user's data is only kept on the internal network of the enterprise, and the client is only responsible for rendering the picture.
