I am at home and w/o vpn, I can RDP to a server, as long as I have the gateway server name listed in the advanced tab, gateway settings. however, I don't want to have to remote to the server all the time using RDP when I can just \ to it. is there a way to do so. for ex......fqdn is myserver.domain.company.us and the gateway is gw.company.us

    Hi JamesT,
