Remote Desktop Gateway Server Temporarily Unavailable?

3 posts in this topic

Remote access web site works fine as does RDP directly to any client behind my router. However, when I attempt to login to the WHS 2011 remote access web site and CONNECT to an available PC via the web UI, it returns the remote desktop gateway server temporarily available error message. I noticed that the Remote Desktop Gateway service didn't exist, so I added this role onto the machine. Though I continue to receive the following message and was hoping someone could guide me through resolving it.

Your computer can't connect to the remote computer because the Remote Desktop Gateway server is temporarily unavailable. Try reconnecting later or contact your network administrator for assistance.

Needless to say, I don't wish to do a complete reinstall of my WHS 2011 OS. Any guidance would be appreciated.

UPDATE: unfortunately it's not possible to resolve this error nor is it possible to identify the cause. the only resolution is to do a full re-install of WHS 2011 OS.

Got this message when I RDP into a client and rebooted the WHS. WHS came up. RDP into the client again. Got the error.

A minute later, was able to get in.

Just encountered the same error when I tried to access pc on local network via my WHS over the internet. It was fixable and did not require a reinstall. Turns out the issue was caused by trying to remote in via WinXP SP3. I resolved my issues by downloading and running these 2 patch/fixes:

Microsoftfixit50588.msi found here:

and Windowsxp-kb969084-x86-enu.exe found here:

After installing these patches, was able to remote access my whs 2011 server and then connect to my win7 pc on my home network.
