Terminal Services on another server along with SBS 2003

I have not set up a terminal server on another server along with SBS 2003. I have bought another Server with windows server 2003 r2 and 10 licences for the Terminal services. instead of attempting it first and then calling you guys I was going to ask first what is the best wat to do this?
Thanks!

After setting up with an SBS 2003 domain with one static IP address(WAN) and a member server with Win2003 and terminal server services and licensing enabled on the Win2003 server, when I remotely login under the remote connection, how does it differentiate between going to the small business server as opposed to the Win2003 terminal server?  Because I can already use remote connection with my WAN IP to the small SBS 2003, how does it know how to login to the Win2003 terminal server?

Your WAN IP is pointing to your SBS server so will connect to that.

You could connect via the Remote Web Workplace or A combination of VPN tunnel and RDC to the terminal server or a second WAN IP pointing to the terminal server.

I personal like to use a VPN then RDC as I feel that has a good security but the RWW should work as well.

Also I want to connect to the terminal server remotely with about 3 to 4 users to an application on the SBS2003.....

Assuming that the terminal server can access the application from the SBS server via a mapped network drive what type of application is it?

If I was in your position I would do the following.

Stop using the Router for DHCP and turn the task over to the SBS server that would make the following task easier.

Ensure that Routing and remote access is set up on the SBS server and connect the clients to the server using a VPN connection when they require access.  Then use Remote desktop connection to connect to the terminal server.  Job done with good security.

An alternative would be to use Remote web workplace to connect to the terminal server.

Or you could remap RDC ports on the firewall to point at the internal address of the TS or get equipment that would allow for multipal static IP (You would need a new router maybe and your ISP may not support this and it would cost).

I would use the VPN route if I was you as this is a good level of security it is already set up in the SBS box and can be configured to be minimul input for the end user.

What do you think?

To log into the Terminal Server remotely you would use SBS's Remote Web Workplace.  If you follow the procedure described in the paper Neil linked above, you'll see an additoinal item on the RWW main menu which says, Connect to my Company's Application Sharing Server.
