Connect to a Windows NT4 machine from a Thin Client using Citrix ICA Client

I currently have a Windows NT4 SP6 machine hosted on a VMware ESX server virtual environment. I require to connect a WYSE Thin Client to this machine using an ICA client or RDP.
There does not seem to be any issue using the Thin Client to connect a W2k or XP machine.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

The server would have to be NT 4.0 Terminal Server version for you to connect via RDP, or install Citrix for ICA.  You would need to install a new OS, and by that point you should just upgrade to 2003 or 2008 both of which include terminal services as a role/feature.
Some TCs have a VNC client as well, so maybe this might work for you:

Need to wipe the dust and cobwebs off the brain for this one.

You will need to somehow find a copy of Terminal Services for NT4 and either Metaframe 1.8 Metaframe XP and maybe Presentation Server 3.0.  Just don't remember if 3.0 was supported on NT4.  THe main question is can you even find and license this old software?

Thanks for your help on this.
Its a Windows NT Workstation machine, and I have installed Terminal Services for NT4 on it.
Next step is to find the correct version of Metaframe or Presentation Server to install, and see where we get to from there...

Thanks again.
Are you saying you upgraded to NT 4.0 w/ Terminal Server? If so, call it done and use RDP.
Can you connect to it using Remote Desktop under Windows? If not, it's not even set up to be an RDP server.
