I wish to use TLS with RDP to verify the identify of terminal services clients running XP and connecting to terminal server on a 2003 server.

From what I understand the client will need the cert to even have an attempt at entering login credentials?

In other environments I have created certs in IIS using the enterprise CA server.

This environment only has a couple of 2003 servers, and I do not know how the use the terminal server 2003 server to create the cert.

Then I would take that cert and get it to the clients and set up the terminal server to require the cert from the client?

Thanks.

TLS/SSL is used to identify the server, and not the client?

Martin's article here is quite useful:
