Need more information.  What happens when you try it? Do you get an error message?  Are the two machines in a domain or stand alone?  You might want to try adding a user on the windows 2000 machine and give the user the name of the Win98 computer.

I have two machines in the same domain. Intranet server (windows2000 server) and window98 for client with Radmin installed in both machines.

After i added myself as Admin on intranet server, then i sit back to my PC and remote to the server by Remote Administrator program. I got error message "Can't connect to the server"   Do i need to set anything more?

//but I can access and control my PC  from server site.

Go to Control Panel and Run the Add-Remove Wizard... Add the Terminal Services Add-on. Install it in Remote Admin Mode and Install the Terminal Services client on the 98 machines (can be found at \\servername\tsclient)

On the client run the Terminal services client and you will have Instant access.

DawidS's suggestion should do the trick for enabling Terminal Services. However, I've found that the Microsoft Remote Desktop Client is a far better tool for remote admin purposes.

You can download it from the Microsoft Website at...

Thank you for all replying. I have one more question if I have 3 server in domain (one is Domain server) In order to controll all servers from client site, i need to add terminal service (Admin mode) on all of these servers is that right?

Terminal Services only work on the server they were installed so yes you are correct you would need to install it on each server you wish to remote admin.

I am glad I could be of help.
