Adding several dedicated ADSL connections for teleworkers and branch offices

    Essentially the bandwidth for our SBS2000 is too low and we are in such a
    remote location where it isnt currently possible to upgrade beyond 256kbps
    upstream and 128kbps downstream. The size of the business has grown to
    such a point that it is not possible to operate on a single DSL line. We
    now have 30+ remote users trying to access the Terminal Server from Branch
    Offices and Teleworkers.

    I don't want to go down the road of Bonded ADSL or Load Balancing - I'm
    still a rookie as far as SBS and networking is concerned and I find the
    hardware required for bonded ADSL far too complex!

    What I propose is to stay with a single ADSL connection for my Head Office
    user to access the internet and send/receive email. This has worked fine in
    the past and should continue to do so.

    I will also add 3 more ADSL connections (3 new telephone line and 3 new
    Draytek Viogor 2800 DSL routers). This is hardware that I am very familiar
    with as our Head Office and Branch Offices all have them. These will be
    'dedicated' lines for my 30+ remote users. They will all have static IP
    addresses so that that 3 groups of 10 users will access the SBS2003 server
    using a different IP. Port forwarding will be configured on each router to
    point RDP at the internal NIC of the SBS2003 server (

    Does this sound feasible? Can anyone point out any potential problems with
    the plan?
