    NAV and Symantec Corporate Edition aren't the same thing, although I don't
    know for a fact that Corporate runs fine on a Terminal Server.

    I only use Terminal Services in admin mode for my servers from home. I know
    my current NAV doesn't like TS at all. I am a bit sick of Norton (Symantec)
    and how much resources it take sup on the computers which the client is
    installed.

    One tidbit: if you use RAdmin (remote administration software), Symantec 10.
    corporate sees it as a threat, and there's not any really good way to
    centrally deal with this. It's been a terrible mess.
