SIMS From Home running on a TS, setup help needed.
We have recently just got our VPN connection working and i want to look into letting staff run sims from home. Ive decided the best way would be to RDP into the school from their laptops at home and runs sims that way.
Therefore im going to look into setting up a Terminal Server for staff to log onto as a default user and run sims and office apps only. Ive never done this before so firstly i was thinking about running it on our SIMS server seeing as nothing runs on it during the evening as everyone is at home.
The spec of the server is; 2x 2ghz Xeon CPU with 4 gig of RAM
Would this be sufficient and if so for how many concurrent connections do you think? It is x86 OS so if it would need more ram that would be a stumbling block.
Ive also heard someone mention load balancing? i could do with some pointing in the right direction on how to do that and what needs to be done.
And anything else i should be made aware of?
