    Sims and FMS remote access questions.

    Hi,

    I have HAP+ Home Access Plus+ working (SSL file access) and my next step is to give 1 or 2 staff members (small primary) access to Sims and FMS.

    Looks like RD Web Access will be the way to go but open to suggested alternatives.

    Q1. Can Sims and FMS run as a remote App or is it best as a remote desktop?

    Q2. Should RD Web Access role be installed on the same server as my HAP+ and IIS install?

    They both work as on RD Web Access, you will run into problems though when people try to view reports/ documents that try to open Word or Excel for example. Namely SIMS or FMS crashes, best way is through a full desktop in that respect.

    Cheers. Was thinking desktop would be best.

    Never having set up RD Web Access should it be installed on to my outward facing server that the staff use to access HAP+. I presume so but will need some guidance setting this up.

    Yes that would probably be the best place, you can either set it all up on one server, including the installed apps or your server that runs the apps could be separate (probably not worth it in your case).

    If you are going full desktop, make sure you setup a gateway as well, to make SSL connections. If you are just going for Web Access then you should of course get an SSL cert for it, there are loads of step by step guides available. It should be something you can do by yourself.

    You also need to check you are licensed for people to remote in. RDS licenses are really cheap on agreement (3-4), and pretty cheap outright I believe.

    you should of course get an SSL cert
    I have created a self signed SSl cert for HAP+ Access, is this ok?

    Sorry for the very basic questions but this is all new to me.
