When I am running tsadmin to view the users that are logged onto my machine via terminal services, the option for remote control is grey.  In active directory the allow remote control is checked and also in terminal services config I have it set to allow remote control.  My machine is a primary domain controller.  (It is the only machine I have right now, I am just doing projects from home right now)  Anyways, would it have anything to do with it being a PDC?

You have to be logged on with an Termianl Services/RDP session to use remote control, logging onto the console phsically or with pcanyware,vnc will not work.

You might also like to go into terminal services configuration and modify the remote control settings
i generally uncheck require users permission and set the it to interactive
