TSX Gateway

A secure RDP-VPN solution for Windows which encapsulates the standard Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) over HTTPS.

Version 1.0.200 • Windows • 36 MB •   Changelog

Secure VPN alternative

Deploy Thinstuff TSX Gateway to establish a secure and encrypted connection between remote users on the internet and remote desktop hosts in your local network.

The 3 primary purposes of TSX Gateway, in the order of the connection sequence, are:

Establish connection

The external user connects to
the TSX Gateway with any
remote desktop client (recommended).


TSX Gateway authenticates the user
and ensures permissions to access
internal network resources.

Securing network traffic

After verification, the TSX Gateway
passes to the user to the destination host
through a secure tunnel.


From outside only port 443 is open and the user has to authenticate at the TSX Gateway. As soon as this is done successfully, the RDP connection to XP/VS Server will be established within an encrypted tunnel.

This also increases compatibility with firewalls in public locations such as educational institutions.
