Help Setting Up Server 2008 R2 Terminal Services - Remote Desktop

Last Modified: 2013-11-21
On a Server 2003 SBS box we have terminal services setup where the users can open a web browser from any pc, punch in our IP address and connect to the server where they can choose remote web workplace, choose connect to desktop and connect to their desktop computer. In Server 2008 R2 Std. it is quite different. I am looking for instructions on setting up the new version, now called remote desktop, to have the same type of access.  

I have searched the knowledgebase on ee and found a few great Technet articles and videos that I have learned a lot from but not enough to complete my project. Most of the information is about setting up applications to run from the server, I want to go directly to the individual desktop PC's from the Internet.

Thanks for your help!
