Hi,

On the RD Web Access server, Is it possible to rename the RDWeb website under the Default Web Site and the webclient for HTML5 Web Client?

For example: change from "www.MyDomain.com/RDWeb/webclient" to "www.MyDomain.com/Cloud/ERP"
I want to keep the URL in the browser like www.MyDomain.com/Cloud/ERP not just redirection to the default URLs.

What I've already tried:

Method 1:

  • C:\Windows\System32\inetsrv\appcmd.exe set app "Default Web Site/RDWeb" -path:/Cloud
  • C:\Windows\System32\inetsrv\appcmd.exe set vdir "Default Web Site/Cloud/WebClient" -path:/ERP

Method 2:
Renamed the folder "C:\Windows\Web\RDWeb\" to "C:\Windows\Web\Cloud\"

  • Replace "RDWeb" to "Cloud" and "WebClient" to "ERP" in
    ○ C:\Windows\System32\inetsrv\config\applicationHost.config
    ○ C:\Windows\Web\Cloud\Web.config
    ○ C:\Program Files\RemoteDesktopWeb\Internal\Clients\tqlv2tws.il2\content*

Method 3:
Using IIS Rewrite Module

I always got "The page isn’t redirecting properly" Status 302

Thanks in advance

    What url rewrite rule are you using? May be you can try the following rule:

    <rule name="test" stopProcessing="true">  
      <match url="^RDWeb/webclient$" />  
        <conditions>  
          <add input="{HTTP_HOST}" negate="true" pattern="^MyDomain.com$" />  
        </conditions>  
      <action type="Redirect" url="Cloud/ERP" redirectType="Permanent" />  
    </rule>

    The only missing part is I want to keep the url in the browser as https://win2022-vps.dc.local/Cloud/ERP

    A rewrite doesn't change the URL in the browser, if you rewrite https://win2022-vps.dc.local/Cloud/ERP, it shouldn't change the url.

    URL Rewrite vs. Redirect; What’s the difference?
