We want to set up Red Hat 2x Terminal server for allowing access to servers to our Administrators. We want to have our OWA users to access OWA mails through this 2X Terminal server when they are outside our network & also have our Administrators to access their servers through this 2x Terminal server when being outside the Network. We have ISA 2006 & IAG for this with RSA authentication. I know that we can use the Terminal Server & Terminal service Gateway concept of Microsoft but the associated cost is too High when we look at the Microsoft Terminal server User CALs The Question is that whether we have any other alternates to use the RedHat 2x TS concept for providing secure remote access to users & Administrators from outside our Network

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You have a lot of options, but your 2x Terminal Server solution will probably be the cheapest.

You can look into some VPNs like Junipers SA-2000 SSL VPN which is easy to manage and allows very granular access controls.

For the OWA part, you can use a front-end Exchange server to host too.

    The options as p is Through Terminal server published on TS gateway & have TS gateway published on ISA 2006 / IAG appliance. this will allow a secured remote access. However this is a costly option since it involves TS CALs to be purchased per user basis. Hence I was looking at a Linux Terminal server RH 2x. but I do not know whether there is a method to allow remote desktop protocol so that applications & servers can be accessed from Outside office / home ( Remotely). since Linux has NX protocol whereas MS has uses RDP protocol

    The standard RDP port is 3389. I'm not familiar with the 2X solutions, but I would recommend you use a DMZ network instead of opening ports directly to your trusted network from your firewall.
