Running Terminal Server on a DC SBS 2003

Hi All,

I'm running a 2003 small business server.  By default, this is configured as the Domain Controller and is the only server on the network.  Is there a way to make this guy run as an Terminal server in Application mode?  (I'm aware of the security issues, but the client is already using it as a filehost [I inherited design] and is concerned about buying a second server)  Basically I want to have multiple users (more than the 2 given in remote admin mode) to be able to connect to the server and work remotely.

Thank in advanced.

Nope, sorry; Terminal Services in Application mode is not available in SBS; one of the restrictions.

No, an SBS server CANNOT be setup in Application mode for Terminal Services.  You CAN buy another server (NON-SBS - ONLY ONE SBS PER DOMAIN and NO TRUSTS!) and run that in Application mode.

You can also try the Remote Web Workplace and using a VPN and then Remote Desktop.

can RWW be used for more then 2 users on a single server?  EG: have them all connect to my DC?

I would expect it to support as many clients as your licenses allow - I suggest checking out the webcast transcript and powerpoint presentation available here

can RWW be used for more then 2 users on a single server?  no

EG: have them all connect to my DC?  No...  This technology is meant for users to connect to thier workstations through the internet.
