Suggestions for making MS Office available via TS Gateway

Hi all,

What is the best way to make MS Office apps availabe to my remote users via TS Gateway?
I have installed a test Windows Server 2008 machine and added the following roles:
Terminal Server
TS Licensing
TS Gateway
TS Web Access

The terminal server is in per-User mode and the License server is activated with User CAls installed. My test users can log onto the Terminal Server itself via TS Gateway. The problem with this, of course, is that they have access to the entire Windows desktop, start menu etc. Is there a way to incorporate TS RemoteApps and/or TS Web so that they just can use what is available there?

I just want to give them access to the MS Office applications installed on the Terminal Server and access to the fileserver share on our SBS 2003 server (holds mainly word and excel files).

Many thanks,

Alasdair Barclay

Thanks mickeyfan, great article.

However I'm not sure how this would lock them down to just those apps I want, maybe I'm missing something. Maybe I should read it again, but I think I may have to try something with group policy in order to lock down the terminal server? Unfortunately my test users, when live, will want to access their "mobile office" from anywhere, even if they don't have their laptops with them, so I'm not sure how I would push the RemoteApps to them.
