I have a few questions about terminal services. I have been using pcanywhere when I need to remote into our servers through the internet. I would like to use terminals services but I was wondering about security. Everywhere I have read its being claimed that terminal services is very secure to use through the internet. What kind of encryption does terminal services use?
I have a sonicwall with VPN capabilities. I was going to use vpn to gain LAN through the internet and then use terminal services for remote desktop (just for ease of use for multiple terminal server computers) would this be more secure than just using port forwarding and opening up the firewall for terminal services on port 3389.
Also what about licensing? From what I can understand on Microsoft's website it says that if I have 50 server 2000 cals then this allows me to run 50 client terminal services?
