How can a 'cached remote desktop session' be used, instead of users connecting to a spare PC?
Posted on 2007-10-09
A small office is using Small Business Server 2003 and most of the employees remotely connect to their own PC. They do this by using Small Business Server's remote web workspace feature, which then offers a list of available PC's to control using remote desktops.
However there are now more employees than PC's and ideally it would be useful to have a cached remote desktop session on the server, to avoid purchasing more PC's, which in reality will not be used at all in the office.
Is it possible / viable to use the server itself for remote desktop sessions and if so how can this be best achieved? Presumably Outlook could not be used in this situation for email and users would then need to use \\servername\exchange through Internet Explorer to access email?
Please advise as to the best way forward.
