Launching TS RemoteApp

It is a hosted service architecture that an organization does not have to purchase licenses for software applications or installing or maintaining those applications. Instead, a remote server (or a ISP/ software vendor leases the applications to the organization) can provide and users interact with the application over the internet.

Benefits of Using Terminal Service RemoteApp

Seamless Access:-Users do not need to open a Terminal Service session in order to access remotely hosted applications. Instead, Terminal Services RemoteApp provides the illusion to users that the applications are installed locally

Centralized Management:-Maintaining a single copy of each application(like patches) rather than each of the systems.

Ease of Management:-Those who don’t have IT staff can be managed form a single location.

Access it from anywhere:- It allows users to access hosted applications from anywhere.
Applications consume server resources. This is especially true if you have multiple users who are all using multiple remotely hosted applications.

Configurations

Start > Administrative Tools > Terminal Services > TS RemoteApp Manager options.
When the RemoteApp Wizard opens, click Next to bypass the wizard’s Welcome screen. At this point, you should see a list of the applications that are available for remote hosting. You can select the check box next to any application that you want to host, or you can use the Browse button to locate the executable file for any application that is not on the list.

Note:List will only show you applications that have been installed for use with the Terminal Services.

When you select an application and click proprties button, you will see a dialog box that tells you the application’s name and its local path.Also verified any existing command line arguments.

Export And Import RemoteApp Settings
Generate an RDP file for the application and export.

Note:You can have the option of either specifying the name of a terminal server that you want to export the settings to, or you can export the settings to a file. If you choose to export the settings directly to another terminal server, then any RemoteApp settings that are presently configured on that server will be overwritten.

export to a file, then Import RemoteApp Settings link, found in the TS RemoteApp Manager’s Actions pane to import the settings into the new terminal server. Like the direct export method though, importing a settings file will cause any existing remote application settings to be overwritten.

Open the file from a client machine,the application starts to client machine.

Terminal Service Web Access
To install Terminal Service Web Access, open the Server Manager and then navigate through the console tree to Server Manager >  Roles > Terminal Services, right click on the Terminal Services container, and choose the Add Role Services command from the resulting shortcut menu > Select the TS Web Access check box from the list of available role services.

Note:TS Web Access is not a standalone service,it depends on the Windows Terminal Service and on the Internet Information Services (IIS). Therefore, IIS and a few dependencies will have to be installed before you can use TS Web Access.

Once finished the installations TS can access from
