    I have a small little workgroup of 5 users
    I have win 2003 server
    My server is currently only a Workgroup Server I have no
    other servers and I dont want to make it a domain server.

    After chatting with MS Tech support about how I could get
    my 5 remote users to use a database on the server, I
    purchased a 5CAL TS license...

    Well heres where it gets UGLY...
    So apparantly I need a domain server and A licencing
    server, And my clients who have XP home need to be
    upgraded to Pro???
    I am 5 Person business I dont want to fiddle with DOMAIN's
    and why cant I use remote desktop on the Home edition??

    So can I set up my terminal server somehow without
    incurring all these other costs???

    Speed in not a requirement just a simple solution

    Thank in advance for any assistance

    Windows 95 right through to Windows XP Home of Professional.
