Access anywhere in a Server 2012 R2 environment

Last Modified: 2015-05-09
I am in the process of replacing a clients domain controller and terminal server. I am replacing them with a server 2012 r2 DC and and server 2012 R2 running RDS. The RDS is to allow 4 or 5 users to access an application that runs at head office.

Many of the staff currently also access their individual workstations using rdp -  I think using a VPN.

Due to the cost of the RDS cals, they would like these users to continue accessing their own workstations in this way.

I would like to set up a better way of doing this without using VPN. I know in the older versions of small business server, users can log into the remote web workplace and access their workstations that way.

I understand that Access Anywhere in server essentials is a similar solution. Is there a way of getting this type of web interface working in their new environment as described above?
