TSX Gateway

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

Version 1.0.200 • Windows • 36 MB •  Changelog

TSX Gateway is a secure VPN alternative

Below is the configuration for deploying Thinstuff TSX Gateway to establish a secure
and encrypted connection between remote users on the internet and remote desktop hosts in your local network.

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 the destination host will be established within an encrypted tunnel. This also increases compatibility with firewalls in public locations such as education institutions.

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.


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

Pass traffic

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