A simple web interface for your RemoteApps hosted on Win 7 and 8.
With webfeed to put RemoteApps in client start menu!
Now works with authentication in a multi-user environment to provide different apps to different users!
When a users clicks one of the apps on the web page, it opens an RDP file on their computer which connects them to the RemoteApp.
RAWeb also includes a webfeed feature which will automatically put any hosted RemoteApps into the client's Start Menu.
This will guide you through setting up RAWeb on the default web site in IIS on Win 7. The guide assumes that IIS is not already installed.
You will need to start by having some RemoteApps hosted on Win 7/8. RemoteApp Tool can help you do this.
Next you will need to install IIS. Go to Control Panel > Programs and Features. Click Turn Windows features on or off.
Click the box next to Internet Information Services. You also need to need to put a tick next to ASP which is under World Wide Web Services > Application Development Features.
Download rawebXXXX.zip and extract the files into c:\inetpub\wwwroot.
For each RemoteApp you want published on the page, save it's RDP file into c:\inetpub\wwwroot\rdp.
If you want a custom image displayed for an app, put a PNG file into c:\inetpub\wwwroot\png with the same name as the rdp file eg. Outlook2010.rdp would need an image called Outlook2010.png. Images will display at 64x64 pixels.
Using the webfeed (to put apps in client Start Menu)
A requirement of webfeed is that the web server which hosts RAWeb must be running HTTPS. This involves some basic configuration of IIS, and some messing about with certificates. Setting up HTTPS and certificates in IIS is beyond the scope of this document. Please Google it if you require more information.
On the client PC (Win 7 or 8), go to Control Panel > RemoteApp and Desktop Connections.
Click Set up a new connection with RemoteApp and Desktop Connections.
Enter the URL to the webfeed.asp file on your HTTPS web server. eg https://7box.home.local/webfeed.asp
Click next and finish the wizard.
Check the client Start Menu.
If you want a custom icon displayed for an app, put an ICO file into c:\inetpub\wwwroot\icon with the same name as the rdp file eg. Outlook2010.rdp would need an icon called Outlook2010.ico.
