Terminal Services question

I installed Terminal Services on a remote server in admin mode.  Recently, it was decided we need to connect to the remote server to run our accounting software.  This can be done with Terminal Services, but I think it needs to be set up in the other mode.  I am making this worth more points because I realize this is more than one question but it relates to the same issue.  Questions are:

1. Is there any way to allow more than 2 users to connect to Terminal server in admin mode?
2. Can I limit what users can do in admin mode?
3. Can I use a printer on my network to print reports from terminal server program in admin mode?

I look forward to hearing your responses.

Question 1. NO

Question 2. NO. In Admin mode the only people who are allowed to logon are administrators, unless you edit the security policy.

Question 3. Yes. Any installed printer on the machine used to connect to the terminal server will be "mapped".

Your only option to run the accounting software is to switch it to "Application Sharing Mode".

Hope this helps

Also switching to the other mode will allow your regular users to logon to the terminal server. You can restrict them using GPO's.

Do I need the Windows 2000 Server CD to switch modes?

I think you do. Did you copy the I386 directory to the HDD?
