RDP Licensing over VPN to another server, HOW?

Hello everyone! 


I have inherited a large setup at a medical practice. This practice has 10 different locations with a Dell PowerEdge domain server at each holding and running their practice management. All of the offices are connected together through a VPN. Staff and management move around from office to office throughout the week to work and access the other servers via an internal RDP session. They just setup the 10th office with another server 2012R2 box but I am not sure how to configure so that it points to the Location 1 server for RDS licenses. Can someone please explain how this would be completed  successfully with their current setup? I have found loads of information on how to setup the server itself with RDS Desktop programs but nothing that I find explains how to just share the liscenses for RDP.


~~~ EXAMPLE ~~~

Location 1: Server 2012 R2, PDC, RDS License host.

Location 2: Server 2008 R2, DC

Location 3: Server 2008 R2, DC

Location 4: Server 2008 R2, DC

Location 5: Server 2008 R2, DC

Location 6: Server 2008 R2, DC

Location 7: Server 2008 R2, DC

Location 8: Server 2008 R2, DC

Location 9: Server 2008 R2, DC

Location 10: Server 2012 R2, DC


Please let me know if you need anymore details to answer my questions. I appreciate any help that will be given.

A little late, but you will need to utilize an RDP connection broker.
