Connecting to a Windows 2000 box using Remote Web Workplace on SBS

Posted on 2007-11-30

Ok, we are able to use Remote Web Workplace on our SBS server so employees can connect to their workstation at work from home.  All the computers work fine except for one of them which is a Windows 2000 box.  I can't connect through it within the netowrk with Remote Desktop connection either, so I would need to solve that, once that's taken care of it should work with Remote Web Workplace.  So the question is, where is the option within the OS, or is there something extra I might need to install on that computer to allow Remote connections.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

You can install the remote desktop client program on a Windows 2000 workstation, but I have not been able to find any software that will allow a Windows 2000 workstation to act as a remote desktop server, like Windows XP does.

PS That is, within the context of RWW and the Windows remote desktop protocol.

Only a Windows 2000 server with terminal services installed.  I can't find any way to make it work with a Windows 2000 workstation.  I had the same request from a client a few weeks ago and did some extensive research, so unless there's some relatively obscure 3rd party solution, I think I would have found it.  Obviously, you can use other remote control tools (VNC, GotoMyPC, pcAnywhere, etc.) that have their own client software.
