Remote Desktop Services: does all network traffic go through the gateway at all times?

Just checking to see if I have one gateway server, 5 host servers and 30 users, and all users are using a Microsoft Access application, is all the screen sharing traffic going through the gateway?

    By default the traffic may or not use the gateway, depending on if the client PC is able to directly connect or not. For example, PCs that are in the office and connected to same network as the RDS server would not use RD Gateway while external PCs connecting via the Internet would use the RD Gateway.

    You may configure things in such a way to force all traffic to go through the RD Gateway if you want.
