What can I do remotely what does this look like?
Depending on the setup and your needs your remote experience may vary. In general there are 3 different ways a user remotes into their system. Once is to actually just take over their office desktop. Another is to setup Outlook and receive emails on their remote machines while connecting to the company network to access the data drive. Lastly a RDS server is deployed and they would actually peel off a desktop from the server to access their information. The most important thing to remember though is any or all of these methods can be setup – it really depends one what you want.
