Connecting through terminal services

Connecting Through Terminal Services

  • Terminal server

    • Enables clients to run services and software applications on Windows Server 2008 instead of at the client

      • Which means nearly any type of operating system can access Windows Server 2008

  • The Windows Server 2008 Terminal Services are used for two broad purposes:

    • To support thin clients

    • To centralize program access

Hands-On Microsoft Windows Server 2008

Connecting Through Terminal Services (continued)

  • Windows Server 2008 Terminal Services not only support thin clients

    • But other types of client operating systems

  • When you install Terminal Services, you can install different role services for specific purposes

Hands-On Microsoft Windows Server 2008


Thin client and terminal services

Thin Client and Terminal Services

  • Terminal Services describes the underlying technology that is common to Terminal Server, Remote Desktop, and Remote Control.

  • Terminal Services provides technologies that enable client computers to access a server, run Windows-based programs from the server, and access the full Windows operating system desktop. This is known as server-based computing. With Terminal Services, a server can host multiple concurrent client sessions from a variety of Windows-based workstations. This includes Windows Embedded CE powered thin clients.


Thin client and terminal services1

Thin Client and Terminal Services

  • Terminal Server is the server role that provides multiple users access to applications and desktops for non-administrative purposes.

  • Remote Desktop is the component in Windows Server that is used to administer a server from any computer on the network, and enable users to connect to a server that is running Terminal Services.

  • Remote Control enables an administrator to join a user's Terminal Services session to diagnose and resolve problems remotely on the server.

Thin Client and Terminal Services

  • Terminal Services can also support client computers on the network that are running other operating systems by using third-party add-in products.

Installing terminal services

Installing Terminal Services

  • When you install the Terminal Services role, you also need to install the TS Licensing role service

    • To manage the number of terminal server user licenses you have obtained from Microsoft

  • The TS Licensing role server can be installed when you install the Terminal Services role

  • Licenses can be purchased either per user account or by client device

  • When you install the Terminal Services role, you can choose to implement the new Network Level Authentication option

Hands-On Microsoft Windows Server 2008


Installing terminal services continued

Installing Terminal Services (continued)

  • Network Level Authentication (NLA)

    • Enables authentication to take place before the Terminal Services connection is established

      • Which thwarts would-be attackers

  • Another element to consider before you install the Terminal Services role is who will be allowed to access the terminal server

    • Create groups of user accounts in advance so that you can add these groups during the installation

Hands-On Microsoft Windows Server 2008


Configuring terminal services

Configuring Terminal Services

  • Begin by using the Terminal Services Configuration tool to configure the remote connection properties

  • Only one connection is configured for each NIC in the server, which is used to handle multiple clients

  • Activity 9-9: Configuring Terminal Services

    • Time Required: Approximately 15 minutes

    • Objective: Configure a terminal server

Managing terminal services

Managing Terminal Services

  • Terminal Services Manager allows you to:

    • Monitor the number of users connected to the terminal server

    • Add additional terminal servers to monitor

    • Determine if a user session is active

    • Determine which programs are running in a user’s session

    • Disconnect a user’s session or log off a user

    • Reset a connection that is having trouble

    • Send a message to a user

Configuring licensing

Configuring Licensing

  • When you set up a terminal server, you must:

    • Activate the Terminal Services licensing server

    • Configure the licensing by using the TS Licensing Manager

Accessing a terminal server from a client

Accessing a Terminal Server from a Client

  • Terminal Services client computers can log on using the Remote Desktop Connection (RDC) client

  • The general steps to start RDC in Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008 are as follows:

    • Click Start, point to All Programs, and click Accessories

    • Click Remote Desktop Connection

    • Enter the name of the computer to access and click Connect

    • Provide the username and password and proceed with the connection

Installing applications on a terminal server

Installing Applications on a Terminal Server

  • After you configure a terminal server, applications are installed to be compatible with this mode

    • For this reason, you might need to reinstall some applications that were installed before you installed the Terminal Services role

Summary

Summary

  • Windows Server 2008 offers Routing and Remote Access Services to enable users to have remote access to a server

  • Use Server Manager to install the Network Policy and Access Services role in Windows Server 2008

Hands-On Microsoft Windows Server 2008


Summary continued

Summary (continued)

  • Use Server Manager to install the Terminal Services role

  • After a terminal server is installed, configure the connection properties and the access permissions

  • Configure Terminal Services client access licenses to enable users to access a terminal server

  • Terminal Services clients use the Remote Desktop Connection client to log onto a terminal server
