Which Windows Server Version


  • Hi Experts,

    My Client is in need to have people dial in remotely to their server (which doesnt exist yet).

    What Server software version would be the right way to go and what licensing options are to be used to have concurrent RDP sessions?

    They only need access to the server to work on a small program, nothing fancy.

  • Hello,

    just for Remote desktop services you can go with Windows server 2008 up to the newest OS versions with the Standard editions. Keep an eye on RAM and processor depending on the amount of users that log on simultaneous. Details about setup please ask in:

  • Hi my name is Armand ... I'm new to networking and in currently at varsity college in sa... I'm busy with a diploma in network management. But I'm more of the cisco cwnp type of guy ... But my lecture told me that microsoft cert give you job and cisco promotion. So yes it's a 3 year program and I'm going to do CWTS, network + , security + , MTA security fundamentals, and want to do server 2008 because my entire diploma is mostly based on it as I say it's just to get my foot into the door after the diploma I'm gonna go deep into cisco and cwnp... But will a diploma + these above crest be enough for and entry level job? And would you recommend going for server 2008 or server 2012 ... I'm not planning to go deep into microsoft thanx
