Unable to play Windows Media Player (MP3) files on Windows Server 2003 R2 STD

Here is what I am trying to do...

I want to use my Windows Server 2003 R2 Standard as my Media Server.  I want to be able to connect to my server using Terminal Services, using the switch to leave the audio on the remote computer, open Windows Media Player, and play my MP3s through my whole house audio system.

So, when I connect to my server, I open Windows Media Player, and it just won't work.

Any ideas?  Is there a permission I need to change?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Ry

Older versions use /console
In newest version (6.1 xpSP3), the switch has been changed to /admin.
