Overcoming Remote Desktop Limitations

gregmoon
I have a server running server 2003 that hosts quick books. There are two other computers in the office connected through a linksys router-1 wired and 1 wireless. Also a home computer and another laptop with a sprint air card. We connect from home and with the air card laptop using remote desktop. Getting ready to add a couple more air card equipped laptops and am wondering how to overcome the limits imposed by remote desktop when more than two need to connect to the server.

    I'm assuming this is NOT on a DC. Flip the Term Server from Remote Admin mode to Application mode. You will have to purchase term server CAL's to cover the number of remote users or devices when you change to Application mode. Technically you should have CAL's now, but after you flip to Application mode, licensing will be actively enforced, and will shut your remote users down after 120 days if not in compliance.
