Can Windows 2003 Terminal Server Be Used by Both Remote Desktop Clients and Clients of the Hosted Application?

I have a situation where a Windows 2003 Terminal Server (member server) in application mode will be hosting a business application that already is a client/server application.  To save money the customer would like to use the client portion of the business application on all computers (Windows XP) on the LAN and then use the Remote Desktop Client for a few remote employees through IPSec when they are working from home. This will obviously cut down on the Terminal Service licensing costs.

I was wondering if anyone had any similar experience with this scenario in general realizing that the application is the variable here and if this is possible.  Thank you in advance.

Hi kbgnet,
The simple answer is "yes", as long as the application supports it.

I've got such an environment running with no problem.  Most users access it over Terminal Services, but there are several PCs that have the client app itself installed.
They client app on both Terminal Services and the PCs access the same backend database server.

However, you do need to check with the supplier of your application whether or not it's supported in this environment.  For example, the backend server might get confused if it receives loads of connections from the same machine (your terminal server).

Does that answer your question, or do you need a bit more info?
