What are the some ballpark figures of the software costs for setting up a Citrix / Terminal Services set-up for an Access 2003 application with a maximum of 7 concurrent users? I currently distribute the front-end and back-end Access files to sites but I'm looking to increase security and have each remote user reach the same back end.

I think for your solution you are looking at a XenApps deployment, do you already have a server running 2003?

This solution is not cheap, so you will need to do some analysis here.

Citrix XenApp with 5 licences for windows 2003 will run you about $1200
If you dont already have a server then you are looking at another $2000-$4000 depending on your needs
