Hi Matt, I have 4 installations of 2 way satellite on oil rigs in remote locations in Australia. Although there is a latency issue with some user education we are finding it a great way to connect into our server farm. Our facts are 2 computers per rig, they use the internet to connect to our Citrix XP server farm via MSam and we publish a complete desktop so that the users have full Microsoft suite, email, and accounting software.

The not-so-pretty facts: 1) No DSL or Cable provider 2) No local dialup or ISDN internet service There are 3.5 (1 is part-time) users at this site who use a Citrix published desktop (they run primarily MS Office and a custom client/server app). I ended up going with a 56K frame relay circuit. This is proving to be very slow and expensive (now appx $700 USD/month). I have heard that 2 way satellite latency is just too high for Citrix applications. Is that still the case? Any technology or options that I haven't considered worth looking at? Thanks in advance for assistance.
