Connecting RDP through Fortigate

Hey guys, I recently got my hands on an older model Fortigate 80C. I've set up a test environment with 1 server and 2 PC, with the Server and PC 1 separated from the network through the Fortigate.
 
i've setup fortigate according to this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pSyrM_rGUY0
 
Basically I created 2 policies that allows all traffic and services from Internal to WAN, and from WAN to Internal.
I also route it through the default gateway so I can access the internet.
 
Problem now is I can't access the Server using PC 2 anymore(Still able using PC 1). My server is under a domain, let's use "Resident.local" to represent it for now, and "Resident" to represent the server name.
 
On the Remote Desktop connection, this is how I input:
Computer: Resident:3389
Username: Resident.local\Administrator
 
I've also set the RD gateway server settings to use the domain: Resident.local
Also checked Use My RD Gateway Credentials.
 
I get the error message: The remote resource can't be reached.
This is even after I entered the correct username and password when prompted.
 
I'd like to know if there are any additional settings that I need to tweak on the fortigate interface. Thanks all!

It's alright guys, I figured out a solution. 
I created a new SSL VPN and connected PC 2 to the VPN. Once connected through the VPN I can RDP to both the Server and PC 1.
