I have setup New 2011 SBS standard with come with 5 CAL.

I need to allow one standard user to connect to server from HOME (remotely).

What I need to setup  for that  standard  user to connect remotely?
Do I need Remote Lic, if yes then which one?

Do I need to install add roles/features?

I can connect remote to admin account with no problem.
I have add the user to Remote Web Access already.

thanks

The SBS is designed to only run Terminal Services in Administration mode. That is why you use be part of the administrator group to get remote access.   For security reasons you can not switch Terminal Services to Application made on the sever. It has been this way since SBS 2003.

Here are your options:

1) Use Remote Web Workspace (RWW) to connect to a PC on the network or some other remote control software to connect to the PC.

This is what they will use when when you "add the user to Remote Web Access".

and/or

2) Set up an additional server on the network to run  Terminal Server in Application mode.

Sorry of late reply, some how i did not get notification that it has been replied.

So you are saying tht SBS standard user cannot do remote desktop (TS). I though it was only
not allow for SBS Essentials.

Solution 1 that you have given, RWW, do i need add Lic? Also can 3rd party application on the server can be run that way?

Soutions 2 - Means that I have to get the New Lic for 2011/12 Std Server (Full Price). In that case will it be not better, just setup New one std 2012 server and forget SBS, as they do not use exchange or sharepoint anyway. Any way i was looking for way to Disble/remove Exhange/Shareport as it was taking lots of memory and slowing down the server.

Any thought will be appreciated.

Thanks

RWW is included with SBS. With RWW the user does run anything on the server. The server only acts as a gateway for a user to make a RDP connection to another PC on the LAN.

RWW gets around the need to modify all the PC's listening port for inbound RDP connection or having to add port foward to the router.

With RWW can run anthing that is installed on the workstation they connect to.  They are not using a RDP sessions on the SBS box.

Sounds like inadequate hardware to be running SBS in the first place.  If it is struggling to run Exchange and Sharepoint then it is very possible it would also struggle with 5 user RDP sessions.

If you do not actually need all the addition software provided by SBS then you will be better off just using  standard Windows Server and a hardware upgrade.

Does the Server have at least 16 GIG RAM?

Server has 32gb ram and I7 quad core 3ghz could with server class asus MB.

So with RWW user can connect to server and run any application on the server. Will it run as remote app?
