I am playing with server 2003, teaching myself basically. I have managed to set up active directory and a domain rather than a workgroup network as berfore. Now I would like to share applications such as MS Office (installed at the server) with clients on the network. I have read confilicting articles on the web, some suggesting the use of terminal server (I currently only use terminal server for logging in on remote desktop for adminstration of the server), while others talk of using application server (which sounds right!). Either way, I cannot find any straight-forward step-by-step stuff on the web. Ideally I want to only have to install programs at the server, and restrict domain user's access to app's at will, while also preventing users from installing app's on clients.

All help appreciated... steve

OK I think what you are driving at is Terminal server application mode?  in server 2003 there is no longer a terminal services remote administration mode - its just remote desktop now.

on server 2000 you had either Terminal services remote admin mode, and terminal services application mode, with 2003 there is just application mode, be aware you need additional licencing to run in application mode - but thats what you are looking for :)

you add it as a server ROLE in 2003 which you can do from the "Manage your server" console
