Hi,

2003 has two different versions of Terminal Server here's a small explanation.

1. Remote Desktop Connection: This is the formar TS in Administration mode. It's created to give admins the opportunity to take over the server. This option is quite easy to set up.

2. Terminal Server: This is the formar TS in Apllication mode. You can give more users access to this server by using TS. You will need to buy CAL licenses, which will cost ya about $200, per user or device. Then you can have as much users as you have licensenses to your TS server.

I do know that 2003 Web Edition cannot be configured as a domain controller and can only have 2GB max memory, which doesn't make it the best TS at all. I do beleive it should be possible, but Web Edition isn't designed to do this.

>>it appears that there is only two terminal services licenses available <<

These are concurrent connections...

Yes it is, it is called Remote Desktop (isn't called TS anymore). So you can do remote administration of the web edition server, but not TS for more than two users, bad news ey.. But the Web edition is only meant for web servers (that why it's called Web Edition ;)) so you cannot do a lot more than that.
