Hello all,

What are your experiences regarding the new 2008 R2 server and its terminal service?

My experience tells me that it its using quite alot more bandwidth than its predecessors.
I have an NTOP machine runnings and in that I can see approximately 25% more bandwidth used on the 2008 R2 server compared to our older 2008 server.

I have taken the users traffic pattern into consideration. The two servers are load balaced for an equal amount of users.

What is your experience regarding this?

Thanks in advance.
