Remote Desktop with SBS 2011.
Posted on 2014-04-15
Hi, I have completed our migration from sbs2003 to sbs2011. Thanks to the help from experts.
My next question we can access our remote portal remote.ourdomain.com and view shared folders, outlook web and have PC's listed to RDP with however nothing happens when selecting a PC to connect with. From looking online it seems that SBS2011 wont allow RDP connections even though it comes with the facility. Am I correct in saying this or is there further configuration required, My Client machines are windowd 8.1Pro.
I have a disk for Server exxentials 2012 and I believe the OEM Cals for SBS 2011 will allow me to install a second server.
If infact SBS2011 wont allow RDP connections to client machines out with our LAN can I either use Server 2012 essentials as a RDP server using downgrade rights or SBS2011 downgraded to Server 2008 R2 as a RDP server?.
If its possible where to I begin. I have a second server box which I can use.
