I am a network admin & Vice Principal of a small school. We run Terminal Server 2003. I would like to be able to click on a user/computer and actually view their screen. How can I do it?

Hmm thats not the purpose of Terminal Server. Terminal server actually works the other way around.

open up the terminal services manager, find the logged on session that you want to view, right click and select remote control

this will give you an interactive session with the user......make sure you have credentials to remote control, you may have to do a little security tweaking
