Terminal Services versus VNC
Posted on 2004-09-30
I am logging into our Windows 2000 server from a WindowsXP Pro laptop, over a VPN connection and using the server Administrator login. I get less latency using Remote Desktop to create the session than I do using VNC. However, with VNC I can see all running processes in the task manager - and everything else for that matter - while with Remote Desktop I see only a limited number of process, etc....
Is this an unavoidable side effect of logging in via a terminal session? I would have thought that using the server Administrator login would allow that session to see EVERYTHING running on the box.
