RDP Client(s) Not Authenticating to RD Gateway 2012


Unable to connect to RD Gateway , connecting to Desktop or RemoteApp in Remote Desktop Services Infrastructure


Reviewing Event Viewer – Microsoft-Windows-TerminalServices-Gateway/Operational

Incoming connection requests, indicated by event ID’s 312, but the connection does not authenticate successfully


Reviewing the LAN Manager Authentication Level you’ll see the “Send LM & NTLM – use NTLMv2 session Security if negotiated” will be set.


This is not the default setting by may have been set on clients to improve/resolve legacy compatibility problems.


Option 1:

Adjust the NTLM Manager setting on the client to be “Clients use only NTLMv2 authentication” – Any of these options will resolve the issue as client will be using NTLMv2 only which is required by default on RD Gateway


Option 2:

If your unable to change the client NTLM settings as per option 1. Add the following registry keys on the RD Gateway Server

Name: EnforceChannelBinding 
VALUE: 0 (Decimal)

This only applies when a reboot has been completed on the Server.

This will force the RD Gateway to recieve and process NTLMv1 requests.
