Is Citrix really necessary?

By LabRaT ·
I am working on a plan to upgrade a NT 4.0 Terminal Server running Citrix Metaframe which hosts about 18 internal users and 4 VPN users. Applications are MS Office and they attach to a Server 2003 database. The old server was setup about 5 years ago and NT Terminal Services just didn't work until we added Citrix.

Is anyone running Server 2003 Terminal Services without Citrix? Has MS worked out their problems or do I really need to budget the extra expense of updating my Citrix package?

If there are dialup connections to your network, I advice you to use Citrix, otherwise it's not necessary. There are other ways for VPN connections.

Thank you. When you say "dailup connection," I assume you mean phone modem. I have a broadband modem accessed through a router/VPN gateway. That appliance controls the VPN connection and just passes the ICA request thru to the Terminal Server where they login on the internal network. We've decided to try S2KTS without Citrix. If the apps don't run, we get Citrix. LOL! You should have been at the meeting that came up with that "Executive Decision!" I love my job! LOL!!
