Dedicated ADSL line for terminal server in SBS2003 environment ?

Hello Experts - we are saturating our ADSL2+ link with uploads and need more bandwidth but our options are limited to ADSL due to geographical location.

I was thinking of putting in a another ADSL line just for the terminal server.

It has a static internal address now and I propose to change the default gateway to the new ADSL line.

Alternatively I could create a DHCP reservation on the SBS server with the new default gateway.

As long as the terminal server uses the SBS box for DNS it should work.

Has anyone tried this or have any other ideas or advice ?

Thanks

The DHCP server can hand out a gateway address to the internal workstations going out through ADSL 1 as an example, and RDP can come in through ADSL 2, just make sure that the gateway for the Terminal Server is the ADSL 2 connection.
