Terminal Services or Not
Posted on 2014-08-28
I have two branch offices. They were originally setup as terminal services. They have a direct connect on the network to email, printers, drive folders, etc. except our POS system. For the POS they have to remote into the branch server which is a terminal service server. They have the POS software on their machines but don't use it and instead use it in the remote session. It just points to a UNC path for data connection which they can connect to without being on the terminal server. Terminal services are, I think, a pain to deal with.
I would like to do away with the TS and go with them just accessing the software.
I would like to know the pros and cons of doing this.
I know one con maybe that one of the branches only has 6Mbps connection. The other has a 50Mbps and I have a 200Mbps.
Any other thoughts?
