I would like to introduce everyone to an exciting new feature recently added to all of my add-ins that allows you to connect to them from Mac, iOS, Android, and Windows RT computers and devices. The new feature allows your server to act as a RemoteApp and Desktop Connections (RADC) web feed server for serving remote resources to RADC clients; including the new Microsoft Remote Desktop clients that are freely available for Mac, iOS, Android, and Windows RT.
By default, WHS RemoteApp, WHS Office, WHS Outlook, WHS QuickBooks, and WHS Quicken do not allow you to print to the printer that is connected to your local computer. To enable printing to the local computer’s printer:
By default, WHS Office, WHS RemoteApp, WHS Outlook, WHS QuickBooks, and WHS Quicken allows access to the files and folders on the hard disk drives that are connected to your local computer from local (Launchpad) connections, but not from remote (Remote Web Access) connections. To enable or disable access the local computer’s drives:
If your server is headless and/or doesn’t contain a CD/DVD optical drive, it can be a bit tricky to install an application like Microsoft Office/Outlook directly onto it. Here are some steps to help guide you through the process:
To successfully connect to WHS Office Web Access, WHS RemoteApp Web Access, WHS Outlook Web Access, WHS QuickBooks Web Access, and/or WHS Quicken Web Access via the server’s built-in Remote Web Access website under Windows XP:
The underlying Windows Server 2008 R2 operating system in Windows Home Server 2011, Windows Small Business Server 2011 Essentials, and Windows Storage Server 2008 R2 Essentials allows a maximum of two simultaneous Remote Desktop connections to the server. A direct result of this is that only two allowed users can be connected to WHS RemoteApp, WHS Office, WHS Outlook, WHS QuickBooks and/or WHS Quicken at exactly the same time.
