Hello I am trying to setup remote access on my Server 2012. I have been told I need 2 servers to use remote access? All I want is the nice pretty little login screen for my users like the one I attached.

 

Can someone please help me through this nightmare installation?

Your question is how to setup remote access for server 2012.  But your screen shot is from server 2012 Essentials.  You cannot get the pretty login screen on server 2012.  It is only in server 2012 Essentials.

 

you *can* get the pretty login screen on server 2012 R2 and/or server 2012R2 Essentials though. 

 

You don't need 2 servers, you just need "one" of the right ones :)

I am facing the same issue. I am setting up a single server (2012 standard) for a small company that needs remote access.

What is small?  under 25 computers/users?  50?  I would lean toward adding a second server with Server 2012 R2 Essentials.  It can join the Domain of the 2012 server and provide remote access to files and the users desktops from afar if they are not home versions.  As well as do full backup of the desktops.
