User access to second server in SBS 2008 network

Avatar of kaydel

3 Comments1 Solution283 ViewsLast Modified:

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!
