Terminal Services Application Mode

By nadams ·
Does Windows Server 2003 R2 Standard come with Terminal Services Application Mode. I seem to recall that it does and allows you to set up a licensing server for XX amount of days.

I want to allows users to use Peachtree remotely from home and have access to the office server through a VPN, not Remote Desktop.

2003 comes with Terminal Server Application mode. You just need to install it. And yes you can also setup licensing the same way.

I also agree that you would want the users to get to Peachtree thru VPN rather than RDP. Once you setup the VPN tunnel you should be able to have them test it. Just keep in mind that they will need to have the appication installed on whatever remote machine that they are using.

Application to install

by nadams In reply to Yes

I will set up a server for TS and install Peachtree on it. Does this sound okay or should I put it on the Small business server?

Also for TS I understand I will need CALS for each user, will I need a TS server license, this is confusing,

Good plan

Putting the Peachtree app on a seperate server is the way to go.

As for the CALS, yes you will need 1 for each concurrent user that will be on the server. You don't need any server licenses beyond the normal Microsoft, 1 per server. But you will need those CALS for access. As long as you don't have too many people accessingthe box at the same time you may be able to get away with just a 5 pack.
