I have installed Remote Desktop Web Connection on a Web Server running Windows 2003 Standard Edition.  From a client machine I can connect to my WinXP machines from the Web Brower using http://server/tsweb.
Is there a method to use this configuration to connect to machines running Windows 2000 professional.  
All of the W2k Pro machines have IE 6.0 or better and they are all in a domain using DNS.
I am getting following error when connectiing to W2K machines
The Client could not connect to the Remote Computer

when you try to connect to the 2000 pc's, are you using the computer name or ip?  possibly try both ways if you haven't already.

Windows 2000 pro doesn't support RDP or Terminal server connections.

Ignore that last post.  With TSweb you are supposed to.

Am I understanding this correct that I need to load Terminal Services Client on each of the W2k Pro boxes I want to connect to remotely?  And that is found on the W2k Pro CD?

By default win2k pro doesn't allow RDP terminal server sessions, this was implemented on 2000 server and XP/2003.  However my SMS guy says it can be done on 2000pro by installing the TSweb client as per the article above.  I have never personally done this and have never see it used, but give it a try.

I was able to download tswebsetup.exe from the Microsoft website.  I loaded it on the W2K Pro machine.  Tried to connect from a Win XP client using the server URL http://server/tsweb.
I am still getting following error:
The Client Could Not Connect to the Remote Compter

You might be out of luck.  Windows 2000 pro was never designed that way, so installing the TSweb client was a shot in the dark.  You'll probably have to go to a 3rd party remote control or upgrade the 2000 clients to XP.
