How do I identify why my office is eating more bandwidth using terminal services

hello,

I have a question we currently connect to servers in another site by terminal services 2003. My boss just migrated to new software last year, this new software is much prettier and also uses reporting services and SQL. His previous software was access base with Front-end Backend structure. The users have not increase but we are comparing the terminal services port 3389 bandwidth usage in the offices and for some odd reason it has almost double up, we are in need to get T1's now due to this new bandwind demand.

My question is why do you think the offices are eating more internet bandwidth now? does it have to do because the new software being much more graphic intensive or reporting services? could you please share your thoughts? thanks

Yes I would say the graphics have something to do with it.  At the remote sites do you have terminals or desktops.  If you have desktops so people surf the internet in the rdp session or local?

they have desktops but we only allow 3389 outgoing connections, everything else is block. Do you know a little more detail as to why would a prettier application cause this to happend? in the RDP options i see the Experience tab and Bitmap Caching is uncheck, if i check this will it help lowering the bandwidth demand?
