I'm using 2X ApplicationServer for Windows Terminal Server. It uses port 81 to connect to the Application server and then RDP 3389 to the Terminal Servers from the Application server. I have added a diagram to review.
I have added a policy to Optimize (TFO Only) for port 81 to accelerate the connection between a client and the app server (App server and Terminal Server farm).
Is this the best way to optimize RDP? The RDP policy (MS-Terminal-Services) appears to be TFO only by default, but does anyone compress (DRE and/or LZ) any of this for further acceleration? Is this possible?
The reason I ask is because we have several people in remote offices trying to view pictures and mapping software, which can get quite "laggy" over an RDP session at times.
