I just finished studying 70-410 server 2012 r2 and i did not see any good explanation for remote users. I have  experience with sbs's and rww. Can someone give me a general overview of what roles and services that must be studied in order for users to connect to there corporate pc's using server 2012 r2 like sbs' rww. I know that rww is only for essentials and sbs's but what is the usual method for allowing remote users to connect to there work pc's in a server 2012 r2 enviroment.

    You would want to investigate RRAS if you are using a Microsoft only enviroment.  This will allow users to connect via VPN to your corporate network,  See the instructions below

    For you to be able to allow users to connect to your server either to use apps or to connect to their desktops you will need to install Remote Desktop Services Roles: RD Connection Broker, RD Web Access and RD Session Host least!!

    This will give the same website feeling to users to connect remotely to their computers at work!.

    You won't find much on the net about it, specially with 2012.  Here is a link to a 3 part document on Remote Desktop Services (step by step).  Please read all the document first, if you can test before you go into production I recommend you to do it.  This document provides info to install the Licensing role which I never did because I don't allow users to connect to the server nor do I have virtual sessions.  You might loose the ability to connect to the server using Remote Desktop Connection if you don't use "Servername /Admin" in the name of the remote computer.
