Terminal Services 2003 question
Posted on 2004-11-18
I need to implement terminal services on one of our servers (2003), to allow for remote usersto get to an accounting application called Timberline, also to work on networked drives, and maybe for email checking. At the moment I have terminal services turned on, but it is in remote admin mode.
That is only good for 2 at a time admins, right? A user cannot access if they are non-admin priviliges?
Also, if i switch modes of the terminal services to application - then do you still simply use remote desktop to connect to it? And the real big question is this:
If the clients are XP Pro - does that satisfy terminal services licensing? Do I need to add licenses to the terminal server - if each client that connects happens to be xp pro (from what I read, it seems you do not need anything if your xp pro).
Is the terminal services client for windows just the remote desktop piece?
I simply want to make an accounting application available to a few remote users, and they have xp pro already.
I tried to read through some of the previous posts on terminal services, but I guess my questions are just to basic.
Thanks for the replies.
