Best way to link 2 offices over broadband......
Posted on 2006-05-17
I have a situation where there are 2 offices linked by broadband. I need to check the bandwidth but would expect it to be between 1 and 8 mb. I need to install a windows based 2 tier DB app. such that users on both sites can access it. What would be the best architecture....?
Options that I can think of include:
1) Remote Desktop into the server with a specific client user name, and then access client s/w
2) Install Client s/w locally and have Server s/w on Server...
Do you have a view on something completely different like the use of web technology.
Someone has advised me that there are issues with Terminal Services and use on Broadband in that it can drop you incorrectly, and by the time you have relogged on a number of times you start to run out of CALs, as well as corrupt DBs. I have not experienced this I must add.
Views very welcome.
