Hi, Im on a Win 2003 SmallBusiness Server network. We have another server, win 2000 server. I would like to connect from the win2003sbs to the win2000server with Terminal Services.

Question #1, when I try to connect I get the message "Remote Desktop Disconnected" "Remote connections might not be enabled". Ok - how do I enable it?

Question #2, since both computers are on the same network and I have admin rights on both, can I enable remote connections on the win2000server when I am on the win2003sbs?

Best regards !
Jonas

Hi vb_jonas,

Q1.
Install Terminal Services, Which is a windows component, install it with the Remote administration option.  Which is free.

Q2.
You will have to be on the win2000Server to enable the connection.

Cheers,
IceRaven

Dear vb_jonas,

Q1.  Make sure you are not using a blank password when using Remote Desktop or Administration.  

Q2.  You need to enable remote desktop on Win2kServer.
