Jump Desktop for iOS v5.5+ and Jump Desktop for Mac v3.0+ supports Remote Desktop Gateways (RD Gateway). This article will show you how to setup a Remote Desktop Gateway server using Jump Desktop.
- First let's create a manual RDP connection for the computer you want to connect to. If you already have a manual connection defined for your computer, tap the blue icon to the right and skip to Step #3. Important: The manual connection should contain the details the of the computer you want to connect to and not the details of the RD Gateway server.
- Open up Jump Desktop on your iOS device and then tap the + button on the top right hand corner. Enter the address of the computer you want to connect to. Important: Make sure to enter the details of the computer you're connecting to and not the RD Gateway yet (we'll do that in the next step). Save your settings.
- After saving your settings you'll see the details for the new connection. Scroll down to the Advanced section and tap the rd gateway row:
