My experience is more with individual machine support so looking for a sanity check/2nd opinion.
I have a new client with an office of 4 PCs and a Server (SBS 2003). Connected to the outside world by Broadband on a Netgear 834. (This is in the UK incidentally).
They're opening a second office with a similar number of machines.
They want to retain everything on the one server (regardless of whichever office that may physically be) - they're accountants so all Sage records/Documents etc reside on the server as does Exchange for their emails.
What would be the best way to give all machines on both sites access to the server. Would a simple VPN cut the msutard? Recommendations for hardware?
They've had advice that Terminal Server is the way to go. But I fail to see the reasoning. Am I missing something?
