Setting up a "Telework" type of configuration must be done strictly at the level of selecting the server or a host.

The "Server Terminal" approach allows a user to remotely connect to the central office server. Any user can then access the CTRL management solution regardless of their geographic location.

Microsoft requires "named" user licenses (per user) and not "concurrent" user licenses (shared by multiple users) in the "Server Terminal" mode. So there has to be a specific license per single user.

Since your current IT environment may already have the required licenses, the purchase of additional licenses may not be necessary.

Before going forward with any purchase, call on our technical specialists to make sure you have the right profile for your current IT environment.
