Maybe this helps:

"I just spent a bit of time looking it up on the net and the conclusion is NO.
From what I can see, to remotely access you're NT4 server, you have 3 options...

1) Terminal Server  
2)  PCAnywhere which I just found is approx. 180.00$  (or similar product)  
3) Netmeeting which is FREE!!!

You can setup netmeeting to always be running on the server and allow full control of the desktop
through the sharing properties to yourself.

Hope this helps..."

best regards
Patrik

Windows nt4 does not come with Remote desktop, the easiest way to work arround this is to use some third party software.

VNC for example, it's free, but you will need to install it on both the target NT4 machine and use anther VNC client to connect from the desktop you want to connect from.

There is no Terminal Services for NT, either it should be NT with Terminal Service Edition.

But there are third party tools like VNC Viewer, pcAnywhere, DameWare.

Check out the following article for setting up Netmeeting for Remote Control:

Hi!

I'd recommend UVNC (http://www.uvnc.com).

"UltraVNC runs under Windows operating systems (95, 98, Me, NT4, 2000, XP, 2003, Vista, Windows 7...). Its embedded Java Viewer allows you to connect (and make File transfers) from a simple Web Browser on any system supporting Java   (Linux, Mac OS...) to an UltraVNC server."

lol! Yes, if you can get rid of the NT4 box it's a very good idea!

I shut down the two last NT4 machines in my network yesterday! :) It was a remaining SNA and MQ server running on Token Ring network, but now that old net are dead!
