Terminal services performance over WAN

By r.kumar ·
I would like to know what are major concerns using Terminal services of Windows 2000/2003, over low-speed WAN links. Is there a thumb rule rule on the bandwidth requirements per user session?

Are there better tools / software that improve erformance of Terminal services over WAN?

Thank you.

I am aware of TSAC. The issue i am looking out for is, what will be the bottlenecks in using a database access thru Terminal services session? Will it consume lot of RAM and bandwidth?

The most important thing with terminal services is the application that is running on the terminal services server and what memory it takes.

A database being used is not going to take any more bandwidth over the WAN (it may take more bandwidth internally if the database is located on another server in your network).

The things that improve proformance on the terminal server are processing speed and ram.

You have to remember that terminal services only sends over the WAN the screen updates and the keyboard and mouse strokes, nothing more.

I have ran TS session many times over a bad-reliability 64 KB leased-line. I set it to be full screen but only use 16 colors. The click response was well enough, unless the display loaded large graphics. Remeber to disable wallpapers and themes on client side also animation on your remote user profile.
