Access to Internet via Windows terminal server

By Calvin T Sun ·
I am working with an organization that has a central LAN (with a high-speed Internet connection). The organization has several remote users who dial into a Windows terminal server.

Right now, these remote users dial into the server in order to use an application that resides there. Then, if they want to use the Internet, they disconnect this current session, then redial their own respective internet service provider.

I wonder if this disconnect and redialing is really necessary, because their terminal session has an icon for Internet Explorer. Specifically, I was wondering if the remote users can "pass through" to the Internet, by clicking on the Internet Explorer icon that is on the terminal server. I realize that their speed will be only dialup (even though the LAN has a high-speed connection) because the remote users are dialing in at 56K.

However, I believe they DO benefit from not having to hang up and redial, and instead can use the existing dialup session (?)

Please confirm that such passthrough is possible via terminal server. Thanks.
