    With the Open VPN AS server - if i purchased 25 licesnse - is it that only 25 people can use at once? or is it only 25 seperate users?
    With the version I am running that would be 25 currently connected users, so you could give out the connection app to a 1000 users if you wanted.

    The reason I say with my version is I have not got round to updating to the latest version and I notice the wording has changed on the openvpn as site, it no longer says concurrent users but
    Perpetual License Fee Per Client Connection. At some point I will fire up a test version in a vm and see what if anything has changed.

    Looking at adito now, added network shares, but not sure how to add users home directory, as it does not allow %username% and I don't want to spend hours creating resources for each users.

    Tried HomeAccess Plus, but can't make it working on W2k8, only on 7 and after updated version it stopped working and just took to much time to fix it.

    Like everyone here looking for cheap (preferably free) option and easy to use and setup.

    Seriously, windows comes with remote desktop web kit. Just install it under roles on the server and people just visit a web page which turns into a fully functioning remote desktop session.

    I don't see why anyone would need anything else to be honest.

    Here is a pic of ours. This is in a web browser, not using anything else.

    it does do %username% but you need to add the symbols that are found in the button next to the share entry box.

    Do you have any instructions or advice about setting this up. Cheers

    Because it's Windows/IE only. A fair chunk of our users use other browsers or OSX at home (and I support Firefox/Chrome in school as well) so until MS fix that I can't downgrade to it.

    I used this site.

    Install Remote Desktop Web Connection on Windows Server 2003

    Was really easy to be honest, took 20mins but remember to use 2003 R2 instead of 2008 R2 if you want it to "just work" without any hotfixes on clients.

    EDIT: I also tried HAP originally but gave up due to the complexity.

    Remote desktop needs another set of CAL licensing, if I'm right. Not on EES so don't have free access to that.

    Edutech4Schools: Thanks mate, just did it.

    Well me it is done, adito does exactly what we want to do, so for me problems is solved. Just need to create proper server for it and make it accessible from internet

    am i right in assuming , you run the web software on your server

    But you run a seperate PC running XP as the RemoteDesktop Server . So that users can login to a XP machine aposed to a server 2003 machine

    Nope, its just a virtual machine running Windows 2003 R2.

    From the users point of view they just see the blue desktop like any other, they don't even realize they are running 2003.

    You could set it up to run on an xp machine if you wanted to.

    Yes I think so.

    I have a shortcut to "Terminal server manager" on the server that I log into and can manage any of the connections.

    We have 90 teachers who use it to write sims reports but I doubt its ever had more than 5 users at the same time.
