MS Small Business Server 2003

I need to setup Terminal Services in Application Server mode on a MS Small Business Server 2003 server.  

It seems that it's not possible but I was hoping that someone had a solution to offer.

Is there anyway to make this happen.

Thank you,

James Alfano

apparently it is possible...

here is an excerpt of a note from this site:

Because SBS comes set up to use Remote Desktop and Terminal Services, accessing a client’s desktop for remote support is cake. Just make sure you’ve configured an encrypted account with the client’s firewall and you can probably take care of 80 percent of support calls over the phone.
link for it is

Thank you. That is a good article but does not state if Small Business Server 2003 can run Terminal Server in Application Server mode. It appears that SBS 2003 can run Terminal Services only in administration mode, which will allow just two simultaneous clients to connect.

Thanks anyware. BTW... SBS 2000 did offier this functionality.

Hi, the SBS 2003 FAQ page states that SBS 2003 cannot run terminal services in Application Server mode. The Microsoft solution is to setup a 2nd Server running Windows 2003 Server as the terminal server. However, of course the TS licensing in Windows 2003 requires a TS CAL for each user or device. In Windows 2000 Server terminal server could issue a 'free' licence to any client as long as they had Windows 2000 professional or XP profesisonal.

I am trying to find out if it is possible to setup therefore a Windows 2000 Server within a 2003 SBS domain to run terminal services due to the licensing benefits of Win2k Server. The thing I am not sure about is the TS licence server as under Win2k this had to be setup on a domain controller and the 2003 SBS also has to be a domain controller...does anyone know how or if this could work, or is the only solution a 2nd 2003 server for terminal services, as Microsoft say ?
