Multiple RDPs towards Win Server 2008 R2 Foundation
At the Win 2008R2 Foundation Server there is a 3rd party Financial Management SW and the SQL database for it. Apx 5 users need to access the sw over internet using laptops and MACs. They don't want to connect RDP to WSs residing in the office but rather use Terminal Server type solution.
What options do I have in terms of technical and licensising?
Setting up the firewall to forward 443 or 3389 etc. is not a problem.
The budget is 1500-3000 euros.
So "Windows Server 2012 Remote Desktop Services" should be the solution. Can I install everything to the 2008R Foundation server? No new hardware required? BTW, the physical server is quite new having a Xeon E31235 processor (8 logical processors) but the RAM is 8GB due to 2008R2 Foundation limits.
Do you have any link for installing instructions in my scenario?
I resently set up a similiar system but in that case I set up to two separate Windows servers DC + RDS server. Here I don't have a budget for that.
