Hi today something very stranged happened a person was working on Terminal Server and suddenly it disconnected him, when I try to reconnect to the server it gives me the timeout message so I started checking if the machine had lan, I can ping the server and even see the shared folders, next thing I did was to check the licence and yes it is there and it is valid. Although this server has about 25 peoples and all of them can close session and recconect to the TS fine.

Can anyone help me?

So, the next question should be what are you running your TS server on?  2003 Server?

You might try reinstalling the TS Client on your workstation too..

Yes, that is the first thing I do when I come across this type of problem..  let us know how it goes..
Your first problem is the Client is Win98. My solution to my clients with this problem would be to either reformat their machine installing XP or dump the machine and get a new one. No sense wasting time with this. Time is money. Windows 98 networking is always flakey at best.
Dear u will find the MSTSC.EXE file on the Terminal Server.U can Just copy that exe file & get connected to ur Terminal Server by Putting Ip address of ur server..no need to Install anythng.
