Stand Alone Server with Terminal Services running Sage Act!

I have a customer who wants his 3 employees to VPN into his apartment/office.  They currently use gotomypc to get to his single XP workstation (I'll say no more abou that one).

I'd like opinions about configuring a stand alone server for Terminal Server.  They will use it for their ACT crm as well as a document repository.

Your thoughts on RDP into a stand alone server?  I've only seen it in a domain environment on Windows 2003 with AD.

Thanks

From my experience RDP is RDP doesn't matter if there is a domain involved or not.  It shouldn't be a problem.  They will need local accounts on the computer is the only difference which they probably already have to use gotomypc.  Just remember if you want more that 2 connections at a time you have to buy TS licenses.
