This book is not an administrator’s guide. Rather, it’s written for IT consultants, system engineers, and architects who must plan, design, implement, and optimize Windows 2003-based Terminal Server systems. It's filled with real-world, proven strategies created specifically for Windows Server 2003. See how some of the world's largest companies are using pure Terminal Server 2003 environments.
- Are you thinking about using Windows Server 2003's Terminal Services capabilities?
- Do you want to use it for a few users, or do you want to use it on a larger scale?
- Are you wondering whether you need to use Citrix MetaFrame or Tarantella New Moon, or if you can use Terminal Server by itself?
- If you’re wondering whether Terminal Services will work for you, spend 50 bucks on this book before spending thousands of dollars on licenses.
Why only 500 pages? It’s amazing what you can fit into a small space by taking out pointless screenshots and unrelated filler material.
