I'm trying to RDC into a Win2K PC
What do I need to install on the W2K box to get it to work?
Isn't there an RDC package for it?

    there is no such thing as RDC for windows 2K pro... this is a feature of 2000 server (called terminal services remote admin mode). your only option if you have a 2000 pro box  is to install third party software such as VNC or PCAnywhere. There are alot of versions of vnc out there.

    Oh, Ok
    I swear I had it on W2K pro, but it must have been XP Pro.
    We use TightVNC on it already.

    Thanks though.

    Terminal Services works pretty well - I find it quicker then 3rd Party software but just though I would mention you need
    to ensure the following is allowed through your firewall / ISA Server config.
    IN    TCP      3389
    IN    UDP     3389

    Although you have probably already got this sorted!
