Hi all,

I was wondering if someone could kindly point me in the direction of white papers, or tech sheets on how to access a Terminal Server session via a Web Browser.

Can this be done with Terminal Server 2003?   Connecting remotly via an Internet Connection, through a browser, into the Termial Server session and viewing your desktop or directly starting an application?

    From the following web page:
    The Remote Desktop Web Connection ActiveX control allows you to access your computer, via the Internet, from another computer using Internet Explorer. You must be running Windows XP Professional and using its Internet Information Services (IIS) to host a Web site on the Internet to use this feature.

    Remote Desktop Web Connection provides most of the same functionality as the Remote Desktop Connection software; but it does not require a private network, or virtual private network connection.

    You can download the software on this page and run setup to install the ActiveX control and sample Web page on your Windows XP Professional computer running IIS.

    (Note: this also runs on Windows 2000 and 2003 Server; ONLY IE can connect).
