How to connect to Terminal Server

Hi,
I have a Windows 2008 server running terminal server with licences. I can connect to this via Remote Desktop, but I'm wondering how can users run terminal services. What program do they use? I've looked around for 'terminal services' but can't seem to locate it.

I thought 'remote desktop' was just for admin to access. If client PCs connect via 'remote desktop' then they don't appear to be using terminal server and therefore not using the available licences etc.

I'm a little confused.
Thanks in advance.

You use the remote desktop software, if it is not using the correct licences you have not setup the TS box correctly.
