The Terminal Services component of the Windows Server 2008 operating system provides technologies that enable users to access Windows-based programs that are installed on a terminal server, or to access the Windows desktop itself, from almost any computing device. Users can connect to a terminal server to run programs and to use network resources on that server.
Terminal Services technology allows multiple simultaneous remote users to run applications on their client machines seamlessly, save files, and access network resources as if they were performing these actions directly from the server console. It provides an effective way to distribute and manage Windows-based programs for remote clients from a single point of installation with little regard to the client Operating System and hardware.
Utilizing TSGateway technology, enables authorized remote users to connect to resources on an internal corporate or private network securely, from any Internet-connected device that can run the Remote Desktop Connection (RDC) client. The network resources can be terminal servers, terminal servers running RemoteApp™ programs, or computers with Remote Desktop enabled. Once connected users can be monitored by administrators via the Gateway Management Console.
