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?

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.
