<<Please note this is an unofficial, unsupported “hack” that is not supported by Microsoft>>


So one of the questions that comes up sometimes in the newsgroup is how to get a Windows 2008 Terminal Server to show up in the Remote Web Workplace screen under Connect to my application Server. In the Server 2003 to SBS 2003 world, the connect computer wizard will kick this reg key on as per Ray Fong:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SmallBusinessServer\RemoteUserPortal\KWLinks\AppTS is set to 1.
So in the 2k8 era you have to manually join the 2k8 server (no biggie) but then if it has Terminal Server cals/role it doesn’t show up in the Connect to my application server screen.
So here’s the unofficial fix/workaround:
<<Please note this is an unofficial, unsupported “hack” that is not supported by Microsoft>>
HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server\TSEnabled =1  
Reg_DWORD  Like this:

Is this documented in there?  Nope.  Let me remind you again..
