Terminal server and database application
Posted on 2011-04-18
I was hoping someone could enlighten me on how TS works. I understand that if you have a TS running, say, Windows Server 2008 it gives one the advantage of certain network settings. Also, given terminal services, it can allow multiple connections from remote users.
This is where I get confused. In our LAN we have around eight computers (XP Pro) which are running an application connected to a SQL Server database on the server (the actual server with the domain controller, etc.). So multiple users can enter and read data and it is entered into the database.
I am thinking that the idea of the TS is that the remote users can use RDP or whatever to log into the TS and access this application. So, is this application on TS or on the actual network server? I understand how there can be multiple connections to TS, but how can more than one person access the application at one time?
