IT Support | Small Business Server and Remote Web Workplace
Did you ever wish that there was an easy way that you could connect right to your work computer? Do you have the Terminal Server blues because the desktop and the menu layouts seem strange or foreign when you login from home?
Well, if you have a Microsoft Windows Small Business Server 2003 or higher running your network, or are considering the purchase the software in the near future, this capability is already available to you in a secure and centralized manner right out of the box with Windows Small Business Server (although it may not be configured for access from the Internet just yet.)
Remote web workplace is a tool that gives you access to the following primary features from a single web page:
- Remote Workstation access
- Outlook Web Access
- Sharepoint and Company Intranet Access
Let Trigon know if you have a Small Business Server from Microsoft and are not yet able to utilize these capabilities but are interested in pursuing them, whether because your Small Business Server has not been configured or because you have not purchased one yet. Please note that Small Business Server offers a maximum of 75 users, so if your environment is near that size or larger you may want to consider a Remote Desktop Gateway as an alternative. Also, note that Remote Web Workplace is not compatible with the Mac OSX operating system and currently relies on Internet Explorer components to operate, so the solution will not work from a home Mac computer.
