between all of the school buildings so there is no need to do remote

network. Then they launch RemoteDesktop and point it to a terminal
server. Once on the terminal server, they have access to SpedDoc. Since
the data is flowing between the terminal server and the FM server over our
internal network and not back and forth through the VPN, it works fine.
Not the most direct way; however, it seems to work with no hitches (at
least to my knowledge!)
SpecDoc is published via FM Server on a W2003 server, TerminalServer is W2K
