Terminal Server: On DMZ or Domain - Pros and Cons
Posted on 2012-04-03
We want to implement Terminal Server in our organization in order to let users access one or two application from outside. Since we are very concerned with security, we would like to have some advice on where to put this server, in the DMZ zone or in the Domain. Ideally, we would like the user to authenticate via Active Directory and run the application with those credentials. We are talking here of probably 5 users, once in a while, that will need to access the application out of town. How feasable it is to have a user connect to Terminal Server in the DMZ, authenticate thru Active directory and launch an application within the Domain?
