I'm looking for alternatives for accessing QuickBooks Enterprise remotely. I'm looking to upgrade a server that is currently in a workgroup environment. It's a Multipoint Server, so does not require Active Directory for RDS functionality. The users need full functionality of QuickBooks, so QB Online not really an option.
Since Multipoint is long gone, Windows Server Standard is the only option, necessitating AD for RDS functionality. The user base really isn't large enough to justify a Domain Controller and AD, but there is a need to access QuickBooks out of the office. Currently 7 QuickBooks users, with the possible addition of 1-2 more in the near future. So, I was wondering if something like Cisco Webex or something similar is a viable alternative?
The other issue is installing QB Desktop on the 7 users PC's and accessing the Company File via mapped drive. What's the performance hit likely to be?
Thank-you for your input.
