Multiple Remote Desktop Clients...Similar to a Thin Client Server
Posted on 2011-09-26
Hello Everyone Quick question here,
I recently built a server for a few users at a remote office, we run 2 Small OBGYN Clinics about 30 Miles of each other neither with very decent internet connections, only 2Mb Up over the VPN, so since it was very slow taking up to 10 seconds to load a chart for a patient I decided I'd try using RDP on one of their Desktops and see if that helps....the difference was night and day, and the 2 Clerical personnel were MUCH more productive... so I built them up a new server since I didn't want them on our AD/EHR Server...I guess however, I forgot that without purchasing additional CAL's that Server boxes are restricted to 2 Concurrent users, and since the Doc that owns the business got wind of this all he uses is RDP when he's out here.....
I guess the TL;DR version is this I built up a new server and need 4-6 Users to be able to be remoted into this box at the same time....the only thing it will be used for is to run Sage Intergy an EHR Client....Anyway of doing this without buying more CAL's? I have 4 Licenses of VMWare since I'm assuming the Tech I replaced was going to go about it in that direction....any help would be appreciated.
Also on Budget...it's preferably less than $600 And i'd like to keep as much of that as possible since i'm about to have to start doing hardware updates.
