I have a new server for Windows 2011 SBS Standard.

I got a lot of trouble how to remote access server for 10 users.

Any idea to have any third party software instead of using Remote Desktop Connection ?

If you are wanting to have 10 users to access the SBS using remote desktop, it is a total licensing violation, using any application.  Only access for administration is allowed and for only 2 simultaneous users.

For numerous users to connect you need to add an RDS, Remote Desktop Services server, (Terminal Server), to the domain.  Then you can have as many users connect as you like so long as you have enough resources for all, and an RDS CAL for each, allowing them to connect.

So do you already have the RDS CALs and just have issues working with it, or don't you have the CALs?
If not, like Rob said, you'll need those to get it working. If you do but don't like RDS, there are alternatives like Citrix: http://www.citrix.com/products/xenapp/features/editions/fundamentals.html

The issue is SBS does not support the RDS (TS) service. It has to be a separate sever.

Doh, SBS.

Indeed you need a separate server. Even so for a Citrix solution :-~
