User access to second server in SBS 2008 network

Hello,

We have a SBS 2008(premium) network with a few computers and user accounts. We would like to grant access to domain users to be able to login to the second server directly in the office or  remotely from mobile office.

The second server has only "File Server" role enabled on it.

The questions are:

1. What would we need to do to ensure user A can login to the second server directly(in the office)? Do we need to add the server to any security group, etc?

2. If the same user wanted to access the server remotely, what kind of configuration changes do we need to make to enable that? User account has been already added to the VPN security group. Do we necessarily need to buy TS licenses for that user?

Any help would be much appreciated!

join the second server to the domain and set appropriate permission for the users who need to access the file server (means security and share permission to the folders or drive).this is for local only and the domain users will authenticate to the domain once joined in the domain for the second server .for remote access you have to do PPTP VPN then you can access shares like local access.No need to do TS call unless you allow RDP(remote desktop connection) to the server more than 2 users at atime.
