Hello,

Utilizing Server 2012 R2 technology, what is the best method so that execs will be able to work at their desks, in conference rooms, on the beach, at home.. etc...  without having to "remote" into a RDP session.  I know there are ways to do this.  I am a little lost.

Depends upon the Laptops operating system and version.

I think you are looking to set up routing and remote access to allow users to vpn into your network.

So with RRAS, they could just log in and they will be able to use every app which is installed on their surface like they were in the office?

RRAS will set up a vpn, unless you've upgraded the machines to enterprise you can't use direct access.  You can though use work folders without a vpn
