We have been running TS on windows 2003 Server for a while but not over a VPN. I know this is bad! We have now installed a vpn (Cisco router and Windows XP VPN clients).
We have an Exchange Server, a File Server and a dedicated TS server.
1.) I have an SQL server database sat on the File Server and an Access Data Project front end. Should I put the Access front end on the remote users laptop or on the TS server?
2.) I would like the remote users files to synchronise with their files on another server on the network (as they do when they are in the office). Will this happen and is this a good idea or will it take ages for this to occur?
3.) If the answer to question 2 is 'No' can I get synchronisation to occur only when the user is in the office?
4.) We have only just installed Exchange Server 2003. What method would you reccomend for the remote users to collect their emails?
5.) We currently have only one Terminal Services Server. If we have more users connecting can I add another Terminal Services server to the network? If so, how do I do this?
6.) We have 2 ADSL connections (one a test/spare). If a number of users connect to a Terminal Server is it advisable to utilise both of these.
b.) If yes, how do I connect 2 routers to the same network? Perhaps 2 NICS in one server?
c.) Rather than 2 ADSL connections would I be better going for SDSL?
Many thanks for your help. Simon
