I have been reading a little about Windows Terminal Services and would like to try it out. We have an opportunity to sell our VB Application to a customer with remote locations and I need to be able to suggest a networking strategy for them.
I have a Windows 2000 machine that I would like to set up as the server machine. I tried installing Terminal Services but I don't have the component on my machine. I thought I could download the adminpak.msi, run it and the component would be available but the readme file stated the msi I downloaded was for XP only. Here are my questions:
1. Is it possible to install Terminal Services in Application Server Mode on Windows 2000 Professional?
2. If yes, How/Where do I get the Terminal Services Component in my Add/Remove Windows Components wizard? I have my Windows 2000 Professional disk.
3. How would I setup my client to access the Terminal Services machine? It is my understanding that the client os would have to be either Windows 2000 or Windows XP, is that correct?
4. Licensing is free for Windows 2000 or Windows XP clients?
Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated...
