The Microsoft-provided RDP client here:

Does not support connecting via a Terminal Services Gateway. Are there any other options?

Would a VNC client provide a useable workaround? – user9290 Aug 13 '11 at 3:52
No - I'm a developer on the Microsoft stack, and when I'm working remotely I want fast performance. So far, Windows 7 RDP client, or even the new 2.1 client from MS works the best if I'm on the network, but remotely, that won't work (unless you use VPN). – Nicolas Webb Aug 13 '11 at 21:57

Unfortunately, neither Microsoft's own client nor the popular CoRD alternative currently support it, and the latter likely won't for a while.

I haven't tested it, but the €20 iTap claims to support it.

iTap works great! Not sure if I'm ready to shell out the bucks, yet. But it's faster than booting up Boot Camp. – Nicolas Webb Aug 13 '11 at 21:58
