  • Terminal Services connection through browser

    Hi, all.

    My main software runs locally on a server (its CD should be in the drive - s**tty thing!).
    I have staff travelling around to people that are interested to make donations and they need to check the catalogue on the server, to see what to get and what not (items already existing and such).
    I thought of the following solution: allow them to connect through browser to a TS session on the server (it's 2003 Enterprise) and get the application only, not the desktop. Another issue: I need them to connect directly, without need to enter username and pasword (I don't want those travelling around on the Net).
    I know the thing is possible using the ICA client and Citrix, but it's too expensive for me. TS licenses I have anyway (I am using TS on the same server for other purposes...)

    Any ideas how can it be done? Any thoughts about the idea itself? Any other proposals?

    TIA.

    The only way to get a full solution is to use Citrix or Cockpit (and don’t waste time and $ money on cockpit).
    SSL VPN solution (Like Check Point Connectra, Juniper Access Server), with third party products like:

    Can be useful, but you will be need to invest money to get any solution.

      10nx, Yuval.
      I checked the Citrix option, goes up to $35000, without the hardware. I am looking for a much cheaper solution.
      And I checked the 2X products too. I am using their NLB product (much better then Microsoft's). Looks promissing, I will test it and let you know.

        Why not Cockpit?
        I would like very much to get some evaluation about Cockpit... I have to pick a solution to replace Citrix, and Cockpit is one of the "candidates".

        Any ideas, guys?
