I have SBS 2003 which is restricted to 2 Admin connection via terminal services. What 3rd party application can you suggest as I need to run some PC's over a VPN link?

    SBS has RRAS built in and it works pretty well as far as software VPNs are concerned  Otherwise RealVNC is good too.

    Is not there a limitation on the SBS remote access to only 2 admin connections. ie you basically cannot use TS with SBS?

    Accepted Solution

    You are right that SBS only allows administrative access via TS.

    I thought you said you wanted to run a few PCs over VPN link?

    Are you trying to access PCs on the server network from remote via RDP or are you trying to access the server directly with multiple users simultaneously?

    RRAS is a software VPN built into SBS that allows access to email, file shares and printers on the office network.

    You can also use RWW to access PCs on the office network.

    Keep me posted on your plans and I will try to help some more.

    Sorry 'few' is misleading.

    The scenario is:
    SBS Server 2003
    VPN link to Remote site
    7 Pc's + printers on Remote site
    Users to connect to Server using RDP
    Bus Application to be run on Server via RDP as very bandwidth hungry if done via mapping.
    Also requires hard installed printers on Server (will not see network printers)

    Currently testing a package called Elusiva,
    Have downloaded and will look at RealVNC.
