Terminal Services versus VNC

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.

All you have to do is click the "show proceses from all users" check box....

2003 has an option where you can RDP into the console instead of creating a new session..   Time to upgrade..

Thanks, should have seen that.  Darned newbie's anyway...lol.  

Yes, this is our single server and it is retiring in December when we put a new 7 server WAN in place, all with 2003.  Thank goodness for that consultant budget.  lol
