Performance Cost of TS Gateway?

Hi,

Let's say I have a Win2008 32bit Server (L5410 2.33GHz 4GB RAM) only running as a domcon in a one-site environment of about 30 users... What would be the performance cost of enabling the TS gateway (or whatever they call it now) for the purpose of allowing a handful of users to remote while working from home?

It's not much is it?

Thanks!

Are you talking RDP , full blown terminal services or VPN?

I strongly recommend against using a domain controller as a terminal server.

If it's SBS 2003 ,term services won't install.
So FYI.

Thanks guys.

Not a terminal server - just the gateway. I.e. users can login to their own desktops but not the actual server. My assumption is that TS gateway simply routes the connect similar to port forwarding on a router?

minimal impact if just acting as a gateway.

So you're running RDP. and not full blown term services.

Same hit as an ordinary login.

Although 30 users on one box is becoming borderline considering it's Windows server.
