I have a client that I started working with, helped them move to a new building
replaced all PCs Windows 7 Prof. ect..
they use a Apple Server Mac Pro 2 that hosts a database
they are a peer-to-peer workgroup network, router is doing DHCP and DNS, pop email from provider
They now would like to invest in a SBS2012 to help with their remote access

not sure how to go about including the apple server if I create them a domain network

any feed back would be appricated

You would have to open port 5900 on the router for Apple Remote Desktop access. You can use a VNC client to access the Apple Server from outside the network. What version of OS X does the server run?

Firebar,
if I open port 5900 to get to the server
what would I use to get to the Apple server from a outside client?
Apple Remote Desktop or VNC?
If I use VNC I would install VNC server on the Apple Server?
Sorry it's not clear to me here

There is no need to install a VNC server on the Mac server. Apple Remote Desktop uses VNC for its connectivity.

so simply add a passthrough on router to port 5900
to all Remote Desktop?
can a outside user access the Apple server using Windows Remte Desktop?

Also how can they get to their Windows PC on the network using Apple server?

Once you open that port up to the WWW, anyone can see it. That's a drawback... The Windows PCs will get in through SBS's remote workplace feature.

So after I install SBS I understand getting to the PCs and shared folders through Remote Workplace, can I have one of the shares in Remote Workplace share out the Apple Server shared folder instead of the shared folders on the SBS server?

I don't see why not, but have never tried this option. Once the clients get into their desktops with RDP, they'll be on the network as if they were in the office and can get to the Mac server from there.

Yes
I understand through their PCs they can and thats usually the best way
I'm referring to the area in WRA where you can list out shares on a SBS server
I'm wondering if I can list out the Apple share
