Is there any way to automatically redirect users which connect to a SBS 2008 to another server using same credentials?

For example, I’ve two servers: mainserver and applicationserver. There is not external access to the applicationserver so I was wondering if there was a possibility to automatic open a remote desktop connection to it from the mainserver. So if the user johndoe connects thru a remote desktop to the mainserver he will automatically be forwarded to the applicationserver with the same username and password he used to connect to the mainserver.

The mainserver is running SBS 2008 by the way.

I hope I’ve described the scenario correctly otherwise please let me know and I’ll try to explain it better.

Why not use the built in functionallity of the RWW (Remote Web Workplace) in SBS? Configure the user to be allowed to connect remotely to the application server (configured in the SBS console) then when the user logs in to the RWW web site and chooses the "Connect to a Computer" option, they'll see the application server in the list and can connect to it via RDP from the RWW.
