Has anyone done this? I'm setting up a lab and muddling through this. I believe I'm nearly there with a W2K8R2SP1 server with two GeForce 550 GPUs and RemoteFX installed. I'm downloading Win7 Enterprise this morning for the first test VM, but while I wait for the download, can anyone advise if there are any pieces missing from this puzzle, planned layout :

[ Win2K8R2SP1 ] --> RemoteFX virtual device --> Win 7 Enterprise (VM) --> RD Gateway --> TMG 2010 --> interweb (thar be draggons) --> Win 7 Pro SP1

Does WIn7 even support RemoteFX with its RDP server? I'm fairly sure you need to use 2008 r2 as a terminal server for this?

Looks pretty right to me (provided what Zeon mentioned isn't an issue for you). You've got an SSL certificate for your RD Gateway and you've set up the CAPs and RAPs right?

Yes to the Gateway. It is operational currently with normal RemoteApp configuration, it's the RemoteFX that I want to learn, i.e. what does it do in WS2K8R2SP1 and then I'll install another one on WS2012 to compare. TechEd inspired me to learn about this, I'll probably never work with it in my job, but it's nice to have experience with it rather than what I've read and/or what Sales & Marketing have told me ;-)

From what I've read, only Win7 VMs support the GPU offload. WS2K8R2SP1 is required at the hypervisor level to present a RemoteFX Adapter to teh VM, but it is only Win7 Enterprise and Ultimate (from what I've read, will hopefully confirm in an hour or so) that support the virtual device.

So here it the plan. The yellow is the changes, the rest is existing. [Edit: changed image size to fit]

Lesson 1. Don't install the RemoteFX adapter until you have configured Remote Desktop.

Conclusion. Yes, you can run a RemoteFX session through RD Gateway and TMG.

Is it usable? Video over aDSL is not viable.
I'm now exploring the USB redirection, which is convoluted...

Logged on to the laptop as Administrator, opened gpedit.msc, then from this TechNet article, I applied these steps:
  • Navigate to Computer Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Remote Desktop Services\Remote Desktop Connection Client\RemoteFX USB Device Redirection.
  • Double-click Allow RDP redirection of other supported RemoteFX USB devices from this computer.
  • Select the Enabled option, and then select Administrators and Users in the RemoteFX USB Redirection Access Rights box.
Rebooted the laptop and logged back on as user, start RDP client and this additional option was available



I logged on as a user (not Admin) on the VM, as the USB device sucessfully redirected to the VM
