Terminal Services - File copying and printing
Posted on 2004-03-29
I would like to set up a terminal services server for my company. I have a MS VPN that people use to gain access to the office network. In addition to just the terminal service, I also need to have the ability for users to easily copy files and be able to print network documents to their local printer.
I am aware that this is not possible, or difficult with Windows 2000 server terminal services. I am looking into Windows 2003 server and it seems to have more options in terms of this.
I know that the combination of using remote desktop from a Windows XP client to connect to a Windows 2003 server will have the file copy and printing capability that I need. I also have many remote users that are using Windows 2000 professional though. I need those people to be able to easily copy files from the network to their local machine and print docs. on the network to their home printers. Can this combination be done?
Please let me know if you have any suggestions. I would rather not use Citrix if I can help it. I think it may be overkill for what I need. Thanks.
