It says:

>.open your terminal services manager, find the user in the list, right-click the user, remote control.
pick an escape sequence (like alt + ctrl + H) so you know how to disconnect from them
>>you can find it under start > administrative > terminal server > manager

I did this from the machine. But "remote control" is disabled. When I open it, it pops a message that says:
Certain features such as Remote Control.... work only when you run this tool from a Terminal Services client session. When run from a console session, these features are disabled.

What do I need to do to get it enabled? I don't know the difference between a client session and the console session that I am evidentally doing.

Do I need to remotely log into the machine via RDP and then do it?

Yes, you need to login to the server via RDP.
