Can Windows Server 2008 TS work across a VPN tunnel successfully?  I have a customer that wants to serve the complete desktop up with TS not just applications.

So, do you ever find any problems if the Site to Site VPN goes down?

Isn't the desktop presentation a lot of data being pushed through a VPN tunnel?

No, the transfer of a desktop is pretty much the same as ay other apps, the only data that travels up and down the vpn is keystrokes, mouse movements and graphics/sound (if enabled). No difference really unless you had a multicoloured desltop and weren't suppressing that.

Why spend so long doing email signature updates?

Do you spend loads of your time carrying out email signature updates? Not very interesting are they? Don’t let signature updates get you down. Let Exclaimer Cloud - Signatures for Office 365 make managing email signatures a breeze.

So, file transfer really don't pass through the VPN because all operations really occur on the server, correct?  Al supposed there would be some file transfer from TS client to file server if an end user has an USB or thumb drive plugged into their TS client.

The only time data passes over it is if as you say the client has mapped up thier local drives to the terminal session (although this is not recommneded).

And some TS hardware clients don't even have hard drives.  But they may have USB ports which can be disabled.
