Remote Access to Server 2012 R2

There used to be a feature I think in windows server 2003, that gave you the ability to connect to your machine through a web interface on a host machine.

I m sure this feature is available in server 2012, can someone point me in the right direction?

Hi Sorry just checked the article this is for windows essentials, I have 2012 R2, is the document for installing the old terminal services?

I am looking to connect to machines on the domain remotely through the 2012 server?
The article covers R2. The procedure for completing the operation will not change regardless of the version of the OS you have. The only thing that would be different is the ability to use certain features between the versions.
Ok Thank you

just to clarify, when adding the role, as it states anywhere access which is not on server r2 is it remote access role I install or remote desktop services.
2003 Server never had that. SBS 2003 did.  That feature had been a small business server class system feature for years.  In 2012, it's part of the Essentials role you can add - note there are significant prerequisites for that role.
