To initiate a remote connection to the server, you simply need to ensure Remote Desktop is enabled and then open port 3389 through the firewall to the server.

3389 is the default port used for Remote Desktop connections. As such, it's then as simple as opening the Remote Desktop Client on any Windows PC, entering the external IP which the firewall is listening on and connecting. You will then have a direct connection to the server - without the VPN.

Your question is still not clear.

What is wrong with the preesnt RDP connection via your firewall.

What do you want to do that you can not ?

I hope this helps !

What resources ?

Shared drives ?

printer ?

If you want those, then RDP into a client machine on the LAN or use VNC into a client machine.

This should work fine for a single user,

Otherwise get a TS license.

I hope this helps !

You're talking about converting the server from a TS Remote Admin server into a fully fledged Terminal Server (for Applications). This *needs* TS CAL licenses and, for security reasons, should not be a role you install on any DC or Exchange Server.

You can install it as per http://support.microsoft.com/kb/306626. Without the proper TS licenses installed, you will get a trial for a period of time, before you must install the TS CALs to continue.

User connections are made to the server in the same fashion as present (Remote Desktop client).
