    I use 2008 R2, but it's the same for 2012. I'm sure the RD Gateway was TS Gateway in 2003.

    SSTP is not limited to 2008, it's part of the routing and remote access components, and they haven't changed until 2012 since 2000

    Sorry for sounding a bit thick but are saying they can get a remote desktop via VPN on a 2003 server without having a physical machine to connect to.
    I have it on 2008r2 server but think it is also in 2003. The server when configured can create unlimited desktops for standard users to connect on to. It is a bit like connecting to a physical machine but the server creates a virtual desktop on the fly. Best of all its very stable but a bit of a pain setting up.

    UPDATE: also you do not need a vpn, at least not in 2008r2 as the user connects over the web using a specially configured remote desktop file or can simply visit a website the is pre built by installing the server role (RDWEB) and the server sends the desktop to the connecting machine, so no silly ports are required, and its very easy for the end users.

    SSL VPN only showed up in Serer 2008.

    Just out of interest but are you running Sims or FMS from the 2003 server? if so you will need to update before the summer I believe.

    Does this work from any device? IPADS, Android?

    Remote Desktop doesn't work on iPads that well, unless you buy an app for it, and I've only found 1 that supports the RDGateway.

    Which App was it? ITAP? When you say "doesnt work on IPADS that well" can you define that? Does it work to some degree?

    This also depends on how secure you want things. At it's most locked down it will only work on W7 or W8 but if you turn down the protocols and authentication it could work with any device that can rdp.
