Remote Desktop Conection Error

Hi,
I have a problem. We have a citrix server and that has the Remote desktop installed. When i log in the citrix, i can run the remote desktop software (Microsoft) and connect to other servers but I can not conect to my own desktop. From the desktop I can also connect to my servers but not to other desktops. Does anyone have any sugestions?

Ok,
If i conect from outside the office thru Citrix, I can conect thru Citrix and then thru Remode desktop to any of our servers but not to any local workstations. The same happenes if i an in the office and i try to control another workstation.... Hope this clarifies it a bit

What OS are the workstations running?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

There's your answer!

You can't run a remote desktop connection / terminal services TO a windows 2000 machine. You can to an XP machine, as uses remote desktop.

You'll have to use an app like VNC for incoming connections.

That's 2000 professional, you can obviously to 2000 server/ advanced server / datacentre server.
