Remote access for 100's of users

WNottsC asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-05
We are currently looking for an extranet solution that will not only allow us to access certain web based applications from home but work as if we were sat at our office machines.

We are looking at using MOSS2007 which would provide us with most of our web based application access and also the emails .  What we want to be able to do is have everybodyable to run their desktop as if sat in the office.

We do not want to use SSL VPN and then remote desktop because this will rely on us having those machines left on while staff arenot in the office.

We have 1500 staff with only 20% of these likely to want to work from home at any time.  Is there any way of getting them possibly all to be remoting on at one time?  Would I need a single server with all software I could possibly use installed?  Any ideas on software out there or how this would be done will be very useful,  would I use terminal services?
