You may want to post your questions and any additional ones you have in the
main SBS 2003 newsgroup. Since it looks like you're using the web
interface, you can get there from the following URL:
SBS 2003 does not support Terminal Services in Application Mode, that's
However, it DOES support Terminal Services in Remote Administration mode,
which allows 2 remote connections to the server itself for precisely the
reasons you mention below.
Additionally, SBS 2003 has a feature called the Remote Web Workplace, which
helps faciliate a secure connection to the server desktop for remote
administration purposes, and allows users access to their e-mail through
OWA, help them set up a VPN connection or Outlook via the Internet (RPC over
HTTP), and additionally connect to their desktop at work directly if it is
running XP Pro.
Running Terminal Services in Application Mode, where any domain user can log
in, is a security risk when used on a domain controller such as SBS. That
was one of the primary reasons it is now no longer available in SBS 2003.
As I've explained above though, there are still a variety of methods to get
remote access to the server and the SBS network.
Please feel free to post in the SBS 2003 newsgroup with any other questions
you have, and check out the main SBS 2003 website which has additional

great - remote access in to diagnose any issues. Now it's not supported?!?!
So is the small guy now have to buy 2 servers for remote access? I don't
think so. What is someone's recommendation? Microsoft says to just install
another server in the network with SBS 2003. Great there goes costs, plus
can I even get full remote access to the SBS 2003 server? Please don't say
we go back to PC Anywhere...........up AGAIN, but it that such a bad thing if you have firewalls/etc?>
