Remote Desktop Gateway server is temporarily unavailable on Windows 10
“Hi, I am getting the RDP error “Your computer can’t connect to the remote computer because Remote Desktop Gateway server is temporarily unavailable...” when trying to RDP to another server. The RDP works for 2 other PCs in my office. But my PC gives this error. All PCs are running Windows 10. What’s going on?”
How do I fix Remote Desktop Gateway server is temporarily unavailable?
It will be frustrating enough for most of the users if the RDP error appears when we need to remote into a PC. It is said that the issue maybe because of the incorrect binding on the gateway server. Moreover, remote access to the server is not enabled or the blockage of the Windows Firewall can’t be missed, too. For these reasons, this post summarizes 3 solutions to fix the issue, like enabling the RDP and disabling the Firewall temporarily, forcing RPC over HTTP, and ignoring the incorrect binding.
Fix 1. Enable Remote Desktop and disable security program
Step 1. Find “This PC", and then right-click, choose “Properties”.
Step 2. Select Remote settings.
Step 3. Select “Allow remote connection to this computer” and “Allow Remote Assistance connection to this computer” to enable the option and click on “OK”.
Step 4 . Search Windows Firewall in the search box and then open it.
Step 6. Select “Turn Windows Defender Firewall on or off”.
Step 7. Tick “Turn off Windows Firewall”.
Step 5. Reboot the PC and then check whether the issue persists.
Note: If the error is gone, turn on the Windows Firewall after the remote session.
Fix 2. Modify Registry key
Step 1. Press Win + R and then type “regedit”, hit “OK”.
Step 2. Navigation:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\WindowsNT\Terminal Server Client
Step 3. Right click and then select “New” > “DWORD Value”, Copy “RDGClientTransport” to rename it, and then double click on it.
Step 4. Change the value data to 1 and then click on “Decimal”.
Fix 3. Ignore the incorrect binding from Registry Editor
Step 1. Press Win + R and then input “regedit”, hit OK.
Step 2. Navigation:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion \TerminalServerGateway \Config \Core
Step 3. On the right pane, click on “DWORD (32-bit) Value” and rename it as “EnforceChannelBinding”
Step 4. Double click on it and then change the value data to 0 and then click on “OK”.
Step 4. Restart the PC.
