By default, the display of RD Gateway connection status is refreshed automatically every 30 minutes. You can modify the refresh interval or specify that the display of this information not be refreshed automatically.


Setting the refresh interval to a value of less than 10 minutes can adversely impact the performance of the RD Gateway server.

Membership in the local Administrators group, or equivalent, on the RD Gateway server that you plan to configure, is the minimum required to complete this procedure. Review details about using the appropriate accounts and group memberships at
