RWW and Server 2003

Experts,

Is the Romote Web Workplace that I have configured and used in a number of SBS2003 installations a part of Server 2003?  I'm not referring to anything Exchange that can be part of RWW, but just the ability to connect to domain computters via SSL either administratively or as user.  What might I find missing if I am used to SBS setups?

Thanks

No, RWW is exclusive to SBS.

OK. I was wondering.  So, With Windows Server 2003, to get some of the same functionality I am used to with SBS 2003, but maybe not the same web interface, I would need a terminal server license?  Or is all the remote access still there, just not "packaged" like RWW??  

Thanks

How many users are you looking at doing this for?  Because Windows Server can scale up to the thousands of users, there are a number of options.

Most of my clients run in the 10-20 user range.  I used to work with Windows 2000 server quite a bit, but migrated more towards SBS packages because of the smaller scale clientel.  Over the past year I have started relying heavily on RWW in these installations do do much of my work from remote location. I just was thinking about it the other day.

I know all the limitations of SBS, but I am just unaware of what I am using in SBS that is an "SBS Only" function. I guess the best place to start is a good comparision between the two.  But given the nature of my clientel, I might never have to "graduate" to Windows Server 2003.  I run a Windows 2000 advanced network at home. Maybe I should just step up to Server 2003 at home and "feel it out".

Yeah, that sounds like a GOOD idea.  My first SBS install was at home, and it's where I've learned most of what I know about SBS.

Here's the wonderfully biased comparison between the two:  http://www.sbslinks.com/Us_v_them.htm

Excellend comparision!!!  Thanks for the link.  Another reason for me to say I LOVE SBS 2003!   I think my business motto should be "75 users or less and I'll give you the world!" <grin>
