Windows 2012 Terminal Services


  • I'm setting up a Windows 2012 server and have been reading a lot out there about the remote desktop services w/ VDI, RDWeb, and so on. But I need to know if it offers the traditional method of TS in which my users can access the TS via RDP from any internet enabled device?

    Also, how do I allow access from my network so that RDWeb is accessible from outside the network? What ports are needed to open?

    Lastly, what's common practice and easiest for  a remote access? I've read that Direct Access requires Windows 7 Ultimate or better and they have to be domain computers. So that rules out my network since we are mostly Win XP and Win 7 Pro.

    Just looking for anyone's input on their experiences.

    Thanks in advance.
