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?

Install a VNC program on the Win 2K computers.  You will also need to install the viewing service on each of the XP and 2003 Server machines.

It's free and very easy to install:

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.
