Over 50 concurrent sessions, we recommend to use a farm of servers, using the Load Balancing feature, available on the Enterprise Edition.
Each server (physical or virtual ones) handling up to 50 concurrent users.

Comment: The type of hardware you need will mostly depend on what kind of resources the applications you wish to publish consume the most (CPU/memory/Disk). You might consider getting a server with SSD drives if you plan on using an application that accesses a database on your TSplus server as it will greatly enhance the performances.

2) Operating system

Your hardware must use one of the operating systems below:

  • Windows XP Professional or Windows XP Home.
  • Windows Vista Home Premium, Professional, Corporate or Ultimate Edition
  • Windows 7 Home Premium, Professional, Corporate or Ultimate Edition
  • Windows 8 Professional/8.1
  • Windows 10 Pro
  • Windows 2003 Server or 2003 SBS
  • Windows 2008 Server or 2008 R2/SBS
  • Windows 2012 Server or 2012 R2
  • Windows 2016 Server
  • Windows 2019 Server

32 and 64 bit are supported.

  • If you install TSplus on a Windows 2003 to 2019 make sure the RDS or Terminal Services roles as well as the RDS Terminal Services licensing role are not installed before installing TSplus.
    If these roles were present, remove them and reboot.

  • For any Windows Home edition, you will need to create local administrators users accounts in order to be able to connect remotely.

3) Network parameters

The Terminal Service Plus Server must have a fixed IP address:

Remote access (from Wide Area Network - WAN)

  • A DSL connection is recommended as well as a public fixed address. Without a fixed IP address, you should install a dynamic DNS service like http://DynDNS.org More information about how to set this up can be found here.
  • The TCP RDP port (by default 3389) must be opened both ways on your firewall.
