When using terminal services, you will need to set up an account for each user on the server and then configure the e-mail program. Once that is done, FileMaker should be able to send e-mail using the client. It should be noted, that on Windows, FileMaker uses Outlook as the client. Other e-mail programs will give you an error that says a file is missing.
You will have to look into licensing for MS Office. I think you need enough licenses to cover the number of simultaneous connections. I believe that the same is true for FileMaker Pro.
So, we tried to use the terminal service from the virtual machine(win2008 server), and we found out the speed is good.
Then, we found out something is not working.
Just to clarify: are you using Terminal Services on the same machine that is the FMS machine?
If so, that is a a really bad idea.
Other than that: yes: FM runs in the TS session and can only interact with other applications in that session (on the TS machine).
Thank you for all of your input!
specific question: since the terminal service is transfering the image from the server to the client side(if i understand correct), and one issue is the playing video on the terminal server, the test we did that shows the video will delay quite a bit which is understandable.
is there a better way to play a video by using terminal service ?
