    It might help to read my previous post found in a different forum: http://forums.techguy.org/showthread.php?p=2611011#post2611011

    This is just to clarify on what I was told in response to my previous thread.

    For my small business, I have another company located in a different part of the country that will need to remotely access my server and use it as if that computer was sitting directly in front of them. The problem is I need multiple users to work on this computer at the same time.

    In response I was told that I need to have a Terminal Server. I have the box that I would use the Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition software on, here are some specs:

    CPU: P4 2.8 Ghz
    Ram: 1 GB SDRAM (cant confirm speed at current moment); can upgrade ram if need be
    HD: 160 GB

    If I bought the Windows Server 2003 SE for $999; and then bought a 5 pack of TS Client Access Liscenses for $749....would at LEAST 5 users from this partnering company be able to access the computer at the same time as if the computer were sitting in front of them, and are the specs of this computer enough to manage those 5 users without too much distraction?

    Is the box even fast enough? Or do I need to invest in a more powerful server?
