Limitations are only the effort you want to have to configure it (correctly).

TSPlus (Terminal Service Plus)
It is useful in all the cases where users have to work via rdp. The possibility of making available to users only the applications they need is very useful. However, it is less appropriate in environments where there is a need for large computing power such as design studios. It would require a hardware requirement that is too economically high to be justified

Cons
Apache
  • We have experienced some stability problems (mostly Tomcat related).
  • The interface could be a little more user-friendly.
  • Certain keyboard shortcuts used by Guacamole GUI are impossible to use in the Firefox browser in out-of-the-box configuration.

  • The custom client doesn't always work with all applications, I solved it by configuring connections with classic RDP on individual PCs
  • the procedure for activating and renewing the licenses was not very clear to me, I went by trial and error but in the end I was able to activate it
  • nothing else in particular, everything works in a simple and intuitive way

TSPlus (Terminal Service Plus)
It is much easier to manage and implement. Even if it is not very intuitive the management of licenses is still better than that of the Remote Desktop environment of Microsoft. With Microsoft, the limit is the ability to simply access the remote desktop, while with TS Plus you can manage individual applications so as to give the user only the tools he needs.
