Sharing App's on client/server network
Posted on 2004-09-24
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
