TSX Gateway



TSX Gateway is a highly secure RDP-VPN solution which encapsulates the standard Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) over HTTPS to establish a secure and encrypted connection between remote users in the internet and remote desktop hosts in your local network.

Network resources can be any RDP enabled hosts, such as:

Multi-session hosts:

  • Thinstuff XP/VS Server
  • Microsoft Remote Desktop Session Host (RDSH/Terminal Server)

Single Session Hosts:

  • Thinstuff Remote Desktop Virtualisation Host (RDVH)
  • Thinstuff Remote Desktop Host (RDH)
  • Microsoft Remote Desktop Virtualization Host (RDVH)




  • Same features as Microsoft TS Gateway
  • 100% in house development based on open standards
  • Not restricted to Microsoft server operating systems – works on any Windows Server- or Workstation-operating system
  • Works with any RDP (protocol version 6 and above) enabled client device
  • 2-step authentication (1st step against TSX Gateway, 2nd step against RDP Host)
  • Single sign-on to combine both authentication steps
  • Full Microsoft Active Directory integration (optional)
  • Secured RDP connections over HTTPS (port 443)
  • Extensive security features to restrict external access
  • TSX Gateway Manager for configuration and live access monitoring
  • Comprehensive logging possibilites

Following policies allow fine grained access managment for external connections to TSX Gateway:

CAPs: Connection Authorization Policies

  • Define the user- and computer-groups who are allowed to establish connections to TSX Gateway
  • Disable/Restrict device redirection for specific client devices

RAPs: Resource Authorization Policies

  • Define which user-groups can establish connections to specific RDP enabled hosts in your private network
  • Restrict access to specific ports (e.g 3389)



  • Connections to RDP hosts and TSX Gateway
  • Authentication on RDP hosts and TSX Gateway



RDP protocol version 6 and above

Supported operating systems

  • Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8
  • Windows Server 2003, 2008, 2008 R2, 2012
