Big manual is here: ... 10%29.aspx

But it can be easier. Download the latest 2008 R2 SP1 (or newer). Install only Remote Desktop Session Host.

Then select "Do not require Network Level Authentication". Terminal, that received IP from DHCP, boot by network and downloaded configs by TFTP, can say nothing about him. If you want security, use smartcards.

All other default values will do.

Install, reboot. Then specify Administrative Tools - Remote Desktop Services - Remote Desktop Session Host Configuration - ... Limit Maximum Color Depth 32 bit. Remote FX works with color not less than 32 bit. And in terminal configuration file specify bpp=32.

The last one. To enable RemoteFX compression:

1. Log on to RDSH-SRV as a member of the local Administrators group.
2. Click Start, click Run, type gpedit.msc and then click OK.
3. Navigate to Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Remote Desktop Services\Remote Desktop Session Host\Remote Session Environment.
4. Double-click Configure RemoteFX, click Enabled, and then click OK.

Reboot server. Connect wtware terminal to server and view terminal log. If in last log lines you'll see "RemoteFX compression.", then it works:
