    Hi, anyone know of any free remote access software to allow staff to get into our terminal services. Something like adito would be good, preferably free.

    I Second this, its easy to setup and runs over https so you only have to allow 443 through your firewall. also very easy to configure the client access. i have it set to only allow connections from Computers which are a member of my "TSClients" group and users from my "TerminalUsers" group so its quite easy to control who is getting into it. Give it a try, it is really easy

    Adito/Open VPN-ALS (same thing)

    Runs on a linux box and connects using a built in java client which it launches

    does it all over ssl been using here for 2 + years


    EDIT: plus you can use it for remote access to network drives for students.
    Just re-read and seen you've looked at it

    any reason why not using it?

    @glennda

    when i looked at this i remen=mber the RDP client would only go to an ip address not a DNS name.

    I want to implement a DNS round robin with the TS's in to kinda load balance.

    it will go to a DNS name you just need to ensure that it can see the DNS otherwise it can cause problems - all i did was add the address to the resolve.conf file for the TS

    Just looking at adito, i have it reading AD logons and allowing people to log in when pointed at the 2k3 dc, but doesnt seem to work when pointed at the 2k8R2 dc.

    yeah i have got both 2k8r2 dc's

    have you tried via IP aswell as hostname?

    Try putting the dns names of the dc in the hosts file - thats what i've had to do as it doesn't look them up properly.
