QuickBooks on Terminal Services
Does anyone have any experience / help / tips / advice with regards to running QuickBooks 2008 on Windows Server 2003 / 2008 Terminal Services? Coming to re-install a workstation, I find that our current version of QuickBooks (2002) no longer installs as its registration server has been switched off. Hence we'll be needing to upgrade to a new version. We only have 3 or 4 people who'll be using it, so I was thinking to run it under Terminal Services - that way it'll be available from home over an encrypted VPN but with the important (and confidential) information staying on our servers and being backed up properly. Anybody else done this?

Have you gone down this route - we are looking at implementing this solution in a few weeks and I wondered if it had worked??
QuickBooks on Windows 2003 server - Hosting option
Installing QuickBooks over terminal servers is fairly easy and there are a number of businesses doing it. If you need any assistance, let me know.
I belong to a company named Real Time Data Services that hosts QuickBooks and we have several clients who have opted for Quickbooks hosting as it is much cheaper to pay for Hosted QuickBooks than to do it yourself on a local infrastructure. Hosting also allows for a 24x7 technical support from a team of specialists who have in depth knowledge of QuickBooks issues on a Windows 2003 server. The backups are done daily and security is also taken care of by the specialists.
I hope this information helps.
Let me know if you need any help with your local installation as well.
