- Point a Valid Hostname to your Terminal Server (ex. termserv.mydomainname.com). You will require SSL Certificate from SSL Authority which issues Certs on Valid Hostname only.
- Generate CSR using Certificate MMC on Server or maybe you can simply use IIS and generate CSR on IIS site. Complete enrollment process and get SSL certificate. You can purchase SSL Certificate from our store thesslstore.com
- Start the Terminal Services Configuration tool. To do this, click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Terminal Services Configuration.
- In the left pane, click Connections.
- In the right pane, right-click the connection that you want to configure, and then click Properties.
- On the General tab, click Edit next to Certificate.
- In the Select Certificate dialog box, click the certificate from the list that you have bought for your Terminal Server Hostname.
- Click OK.
- In the Security layer list, select SSL: This security method requires TLS 1.0 to authenticate the server. If TLS is not supported, you cannot establish a connection to the server. This method is only available if you select a valid certificate.
- Set the Encryption level to High.
- Click OK and you are Done!
When you will connect next time, you will see security lock appears on Terminal Client (on top title bar available under FULL Screen only).
** You can use self-signed ssl but it will prompt alert every time you will connect. Better to get cheap ssl from thesslstore.com and use valid hostname to connect your terminal server.
