    umm... why not simply connect to the W2K8 server using the IP or computer name from the RDP client?

    Well because they can run the application on their desktop instead of running it on the terminal server desktop. The application will be floating on their desktop and they can split screen

    I think this is similar to a problem I've been dealing with for a while now.  

    We run an app that is hosted.  The host is running Windows Server 2008 R2, we connect to them through a tunnel.  IP's are shared and trusted.

    On the client side we run a thin client with either Windows XP or Windows 7.  Each time a client connects they enter their login creds and then it asks for them again then it logs them onto a TS box depending on load balancing.

    It appears it is logging into the domain and then to the farm on the second login.  Very frustrating for users.  I am not used to a hosted environment and all I'm getting is run in circles.
    I've been told this is a common problem with Windows XP but we are still getting it with Windows 7 as well.

    Any ideas would be appreciated that I could share with the host vendor.

    Thank you,
