windows 2000 server - remote desktop?

Posted on 2007-10-14

I have a simple home network setup as a workgroup.  I have my main workstation (XP Pro) and second workstation (XP Home) for general use and a server (Windows 2000 Server).  The network is connected via 4 port Linksys router.

Right now, I have a monitor hooked up to my server when I need to access my server.  Is there a way to access my server from my workstation (like remote desktop).  I wasn't sure if Windows 2000 Server had remote desktop functionality.  Or, something similiar.  I'd like to save some space on my desk and get rid of that monitor if possible.

Thanks for any help.

    Hi leew,

    Thanks for replying to my post.  I have installed Terminal Services on my server.  Now, I need to configure it.  Other than using remote desktop, I'm in the dark as to how to configure terminal services.  Do you know an links to articles on how to configure terminal services for a layman?

    Also, if my server goes down for any reason.  For example a power outage, or I have to reboot for any reason, etc.  Can I do this from a client?  What I mean, is do I still need a monitor handy for the server in case of outages and I need to access the server during the boot or going into safe mode or some type of situation like that?

    Thanks again.
