    Our office is setup on Windows Business Server 2003, and is unfortunately running a combination of Windows XP and Windows 7 machines. All staff are able to remotely access their computer from their personal laptops as there is a lot of travel involved in most roles.

    One of our recent hires has a brand new iMac at home, and will primarily be working from her home office. I have been able to connect to our server using the Remote Desktop Connection tool that comes with Office 2011, however, I've been unable to find a way to login to her computer on that network without going through the server computer itself - which we understandably do not want users doing. Am I missing something really simple?

    Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!

    How are the others accessing the network? Is it through the remote workplace web interface or a terminal server/remote desktop connection?
