Implement a Remote Desktop Gateway (RDG) / RD Gateway server


Implementing a Remote Desktop Gateway server allows remote clients to connect to the RDS architecture securely via port 443 without having to expose the RDS server to the Internet and therefore having to open TCP port 3389.

This is my GPS for cycling! The Garmin Edge 830 is a real success with a battery life of more than 15 hours with the map activated and a touch screen that is now absolutely perfect and reacts to the finger and eye, like a smartphone.

Create a route on Strava or Garmin Connect and it’s immediately transmitted to your GPS. If you’re in a hurry or in an unfamiliar place, the loop generator will simply guide you. If you decide to take another route, the recalculation is automatic and a new route will be proposed.
