    For security reasons, you should NOT make any DC into a terminal server!

    What are the users wanting to do?
    If it is just accessing files, go with RRAS

    How many users are in the remote location -- it may be worth putting in a server

      I agree with Ossian. If you already have the CALs, that is a big cost out of the way. Never put a TS on a DC, it is really bad practice.

      Just get yourself a cheap server with an OEM OS on it and then create a hardware VPN between the two sites.

          I'm assuming Ste means a site-to-site VPN between HO and the remote location. This could be done either with hardware devices (E.g. IPSec tunnels between Cisco or similar boxes) or if you have a Windows Server at the remote site you can do it using RRAS which is normally my preference.

          However if the clients at the remote site are domain members I would expect that you already have some sort of connection between the 2 sites to allow access to the DCs for logon.

              IMHO I would check if your routers support VPNs and configure them there.
              I have nothing against RRAS but it puts additional load on the servers -- routers are designed to do that
