Remote Desktop can’t connect to the remote computer “RDS.Domain.Local” for one of these reasons:

1) Your user account is not authorized to access the RD Gateway “remote.domain.ca”

2) Your computer is not authorized to access the RD Gateway “remote.domain.ca”

3) You are using an incompatible authentication method (for example, the RD Gateway might be expecting a smart card but you provided a password)

Contact your network administrator for assistance.

The third reason is out while the first two are not applicable since our access policies are set up correctly.

Our search brought us to:

Following Solution 1 we puzzled about trying to figure out where the NPS thing was!

Click on NAP in Server Manager and then right click on the server name. Choose Network Policy Server in the menu.

Once the NPS console comes up right click on the root node NPS (Local) and click Register server in Active Directory.

Click OK twice and then test again.
