I have a client that presently has 2 stores selling clothing. The server that is in store #1 is a custom box running Windows 2003 with a 10GB OS partition and a 40GB Data partition. There is not enough room on the C: drive to apply SP3 without running out of of space. Presently the C: drive has about 1Gb of free space.
The server is hosting a Point of Sale application called CounterPoint and it is serving the application out to the two stores via Terminal services. Store 1 is 192.168.0.x and store 2 is 192.168.1.x.
The client is requesting to go with Quickbooks POS so it can integrate with Quickbooks Pro. My questions are:
How should I connect the remote store to the new POS application? Terminal Services or cisco VPN? Upside/Downsides?
A third store will be opening in a few months and I want to ensure that the setup will allow for it.
the stores are running XP Pro SP3, 3 at each store.
