Windows 2000 Server

Hey folks,
  I have Terminal Services installed on my Win2K Server but when I'm trying to access from my XP or Server 2003 sessions I'm getting a "Remote Access may not be enabled" message.

Where's the walk through or how-to for 2L Server at?  I've been using 2003

Not sure where a walk through is, but when you installed TS on the 2k computer, did you select Remote Administration mode?  If so, any local admin will be able to start a remote control session.
Try to telnet to the TS port (3389) on your server. Is the port open?
Check to see if it is setup to use user or device for licensing on the TS setup. You may need to change it

where do I check that at?
Open Terminal Services Configuration (from the Administrative Tools) and check whether TS is installed in "Remote Administration" mode or in "Application Server" mode.
The latter is installed as a 90-day trial after which a license is required to continue operation (The license is always per-server, unlike Windows-2003). Your choices are either to buy a license for your server or switch TS to remote admin mode (The only way to do that is by reinstalling TS), which will get TS to work without a license for an unlimited period, but it will only allow 2 concurrent connections.
