Microsoft Remote Desktop Gateway Services (BIG-IP v11.4 - v13: LTM, AFM, APM)

This F5 Deployment Guide to accompany the iApp template for Microsoft Remote Desktop Gateway Services provides guidance on configuring the BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager (LTM) for directing traffic and maintaining persistence to Microsoft Remote Desktop Gateway Services. It also provides guidance on how to configure Access Policy Manager to act as a secure HTTP proxy for RDP connections, as well as how to use the BIG-IP Advanced Firewall Manager (AFM) to provide a sophisticated layer of security for your Remote Desktop Gateway Server deployment.

In an environment using BIG-IP LTM system, a farm of Remote Desktop Session Host servers has incoming connections distributed in a balanced manner across the members of the farm. BIG-IP APM can securely proxy RDP connections if using version 11.6 or later.
