Win2K Server - Terminal Services

I have enabled terminal services on my win2K server.  I tried accessing it from another machine and the server rebooted several times.  I used the downloadable client for 2K server.  I just tried accessing the server again using the remote access client within Windows XP.  I received an error message about not being able to initiate a connection b/c there was an incompatible fine gina.dll.  

On the server, my antivirus (Computer Associates) reported that the file gina.dll was infected by the trojan fakegina and that it had cleaned the infected file.  Upon reboot, it appears that gina.dll has been removed and I can no longer log on to my server.  I am still uncertain that the trojan is present because I am not finding any of the files that are associated with it.  

So my question really involves Terminal Services as this is where my issue started.  Does anyone know what may be going on with my situation?  I want to get Terminal Services working.  Do I need updated program files?  Is WinXP client compatible with the Server2K version of Terminal Services?  Or does my problem sound very unusual and likely that the trojan is causing the problem?

Thanks,

Joe

I would say that the last question is whats going on. Having a trojan in TS isn't good. And I don't think that TS will work that good or work at all if that dll was deleted, wether or not that file should have been deleted.

To be honest I really don't have much experience with TS, but I would suggest you reinstall TS for it to start working again. As for the other question the WinXP client should be compatible with a TS SERVER2K ....

On the server did you run sfc /scannow? This should the job for you.

Try reinistalling Terminal services on the server. Also make sure that the server is virus free.

Turns out that the trojan was exactly the reason why TS wouldn't work.  So Im glad to get both taken care of.
