How Do I access a colocated server?

Hi, I recently lost an admin and right now I cant get a new one.  Im wondering how I can access my colocated server running win2k3 server ed.  Id like to be able to set up some teamspeak and steam servers, but how can I access the actual server?  Do I need a certain program?  Im in need of help badly.  Id like to set up a ventrilo server as soon as possible but I dont know how to access the damn box.  HELP!

Do you know the IP address (or FQDN) of the server?

Are you an administrator on the machine (or have the userid/password for one)?

If you can answer YES to both questions then try this at a command prompt:

mstsc /v: <IP or FQDN>

Or you can just open up Remote Desktop and type in the IP or FQDN if you want to do it the easy way.....  :-)

Once you connect log in as an admin and you're good to go....

Doesn't matter whether you use Terminal Services, Remote Desktop, VPN or Telnet - if you don't have "teh codez" you won't get far.

If you don't have the admin password (or an administrative login) you are probably going to have to get the co-locating company involved, as you may need to reinstall (worst case)

This shows the importance of documenting procedures...

My answer is valid and should work if the asker has the proper information to access the machine.
