Hi Chuck,

	No, I have Windows servers at each site -- but they all go out to the net
through ONE firewall -- the lans are segretated (Iike yours).  I have a
WAN connecting each site to the main location through dedicated T1s.  My
question is how would you setup to move toward terminal services across
the district?  
You are using nx?  and what type of teminals?   are you running any
Windows terminal servers with linux terminal servers?  how do you do your
authentication?  We played with nx, but found it didn't do well enough on
some of the Windows programs with sound and graphics (this was about a
year ago, though).  
How many users can you realistically expect to put on one linux terminal
