Hi there,

Are there any limitation on what applications you can run on a terminal server?


Regards,

john

Just the obvious ones.  You wouldn't want to do video editing on one - though 2003 terminal server might actually be able to, but you wouldn't want to...  Is there something you or your company uses that you are concerned won't work?  (Some programs do need custom installations (Office and Visual Studio have in the past if not the present), but I've rarely seen an app that won't work in a terminal session.  I think I have seen it, but I couldn't tell you what it was...

Thanks leew. Basically we want to run office, instant messenging, browser, and email applications. But just wondered what we might be limited to down the road if our requirements changed.

thanks

All of the above should be fine.  I've even burned CDs via terminal sessions - obvious problem, need someone to change the CDs in the drive.  But you can do it.  Office can need to be installed slightly differently (depending on Office version - 2000 had an .MST - Microsoft Transformations file to modify the install slightly - and if you didn't use it, you got an error, but pretty much, I rarely see programs that have issues (I have accidentally started Windows media player and have actually seen a VERY jerky picture come through the connection).
