Terminal Server Spec for Remote Access
I'm expecting many and various replies to this one...
I'm speccing up a machine to act only as a terminal server for staff to connect into from home (to see network drives, SIMS etc.) via Sun Global Destop which is provided via the LEA. We've only got 30-odd staff in total and I wouldn't expect there to be more that 4 or 5 users on at once (though when report deadlines are clost there may be a few more).
I've got one of these SCL Online - Scorpion A AMD Phenom Quad 9650+ 4GB DDR2 500GB DVD RW running XP on my desk and it's RAPID, no matter what I throw at it during the day (Including SIMS, Sage, Nova, Outlook, Excel, Powerpoint and Word at the same time) it rarely slows down; I'm considering getting another one, sticking Server 2003 on it and using that as the remote access machine. Will that cut it or do I need to think on a more industrial (server-like) scale?
