Hi Experts,
customer has requested a brand new sbs 2011 server, they have 20 remote users and would like as secure as possible solution?
Is there anything we should think about that may be an issue? Security? etc.
2) they will access the new remote workplace for email, possible intranet, and the other main program they use is salesforce. Can remote workplace be customized to allow programs like this to be access?

Yes, this is quite do-able.  You would configure your sbs 2011 to be a terminal server and create the accounts needed.  You would install the programs needed by your users on the server.  There aren't really too many issues with being able to use most programs in a Terminal Server environment.  Obviously the older the applications are there are possibilities of some incompatibilities.

As for security...  If your users are on the road or at home they would need to connect to you network via a VPN of some sort.  Depending on your network infrastructure there are options, most of them not too complicated but having a seasoned network admin on speed dial is a HUGE help.  If these users are local in the office then they would just directly connect to the server.

Use the second server that is included with Windows SBS 2008 Premium for Terminal Services. You cannot use a server that is running Windows SBS 2008 as a terminal server. Terminal Services does not coexist well with the rest of the applications and services that are included with Windows SBS 2008.
