I'm supposed to 'Remote desktop' to a machine running windows 2000 server.

I can't remember the command.  How does it go?

What OS are you running? On XP it would be "start", "Programs", "Accessories", "Remote Desktop Connection". while with Linux it would be rdesktop.

this is from windows xp.  I thought there was something I can type into my <start> <run>  command.

AFAIK "Remote Desktop" is a feature of Windows XP. If you need to remote to a server I recommend TightVNC (www.tightvnc.com). I have used this for some years now and highly recommend it.

Wasn't I a couple of days earlier with mstsc.exe? If you consult the EE rules, you'll see that the first correct answer should be accepted...

I think what you are supposed to do is flag this for an admin that you've challenged the question..  Point them to this question and ask them to fix the points.  I will concur with your request.   Ball is in your court.  

Thanks!
