1. You can download  "Remote Desktop Connection Web Connection Software" from Microsoft official as following

http://www.microsoft.com/windows2000/downloads/recommended/TSAC/default.asp

And then install it located on IIS directory. The user can use the IE (http://servername/tsw) to access the main page. Now entry the username & password, you can remote the server by Terminal service.


2. For XP user who can use the build-in XP "Remote Desktop" to directly access Windows 2000 terminal service.
*(entry servername or ip to search --> username + password)

(P.S. the logon user who must has the server logon locally right)


I hope it can help

Create the Client disks from the server.... install, excecute and put in the IP address of the TS box. Connect.

Client disks are not needed when running WinXP.... in XP you can use the Remote Desktop app.

If you are trying to connect to TS server from the internet, the server has to have a public IP address.

If a firewall or any other NAT funktion is in front of the server (I hope this is the case.:!) you have to do a static PAT mapping and allow TCP port 3389 to be redirected to the inside IP of you TS box.

The you can connect to your TS using the public IP..

What is the IP address of you TS box? Do NOT post the whole address just the first 2 octets (xxx.xxx.notpost.notpost). This would give an idea  about whether you're using NAT or not..

I can't give you a firewall recommendation, since I do not know anything about your setup.. sorry.

I presume you can access the internet from the server.. or?

Your TS box DO have a public IP.. no NAT in use.

Good news:
This mean you can access the TS server just by entering this IP in your TS client..

BAD NEWS:
Get some sort of firewall, or I'm afraid you server won't live for long.. It can be accessed by anybody who wants to. Unless your ISP have done some thing to prevent this..
