Remote Desktop Connection

I have one Win2003 server, and a mixed network of winxp and win2k clients. I have just installed terminal server. I went around and installed remote desktop connection on all of the win2k computers. I can remote out of the win2k clients to the server and the xp clients. My question is, is there ANY way I can remote into a win2k client from the server or from the xp or win2k clients? I have tried using terminal services and get a "server not found" message. I have tried using the RDC from an xp client and get the could not connect error message. I have been led to believe that there is a way to do this. Can someone help?

You can setup the Windows XP workstations to "Allow users to connect remotely to this computer" by going to System properties, Remote.  This does not work on Win2k though.

You can also just remotely control their console using VNC.  There are many different flavors, but I prefer www.tightvnc.com.

WIn2K Professional does not have a Remote Desktop as XP/2003. Only Win2K Server have Terminal Services in Admin mode, which is like remote desktop.
For remote controlling W2K Pros you have to obtain third-party software.

hope this helps

You if you need to connect to win2k pro station, you'll need to
1- Install PCanywhere... (Bah...)
2- Install TightVNC.. Free, and pretty good inside a network.. Don'T use it on the internet, because it's not encrypted.. You just have to start the tightvnc client on both side, and you can connect wherever you want..
