Specifying Multiple values for UAG fields

For some reason it is very complicated to do just about anything in UAG. I need to publish multiple servers through my TS Client Tunneling application.

By default there is only space to name 4 servers. 
To overcome the 4 line limit  you need to press the "Insert Key" this will provide a new line for to to be able to enter your information.


Yes simple enough, just really not intuitive.

According to this post http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/forefrontedgeiag/thread/9019abaf-1743-4163-8bbd-b129e7bda19d/#2e2b59d7-3357-4ac7-a7cc-f37013223411 If you want to name more servers you need to user a regular expression.


This got me thinking and searching.There is a load of information about regular expression available on :
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd282903.aspx  There is a library of regular expressions or regex. This site even includes a very handy  regex tester  http://regexlib.com/RETester.aspx

I would like to add a wild card address here so I can connect to any machine in my domain. Something like*.mydoman.com

The regex for this would be [a-z0-9]*\.mydomain\.com

But when I try this I get nowhere.  This is because in my case a regular expression cannot be specified.  There are other places where you can specify regular expression but you have to explicitly define it as a regular expression

Here is the option during the application publishing wizard.


Here is the option when editing and existing application


Hope this helps to save someone some time and effort.
