The first step is to create a Terminal Services Server so that our clients can connect to the server either through application or data. In our case we are going to be initializing applications remotely which works great with Terminal Services.
#
2

Select Start--> Control Panel--> Add/Remove Programs.
#
3

Click the option that is labeled Add/Remove Windows Components.
#
4

The components wizard will start automatically, scroll down the list until you come to the Terminal Server option, click the checkbox next to this option. Click Next to proceed.
#
5

The Terminal Services Server setup page will appear. You should be presented information notifying you that certain applications may not work properly after installing Terminal Services in Terminal Server mode and that you will need Terminal Servicing Licensing configured within 120 days. Click the Next button.
#
6

The Security settings page for the Terminal Services Server will now appear and from here you can select full security or relaxed security. Select the Relaxed Security option then click Next.
#
7

The Licensing server settings page will now appear. If you don't already have terminal services licensing, select I will specify a license within 120 days option, otherwise select one of the other available options.
#
8

The Terminal Server setup page for licensing mode settings will appear. Select either Per Device or Per User and then click Next to continue.
#
9

The appropriate files will be copied from the Windows Server 2003 distribution cd and the complete Windows Components wizard page will appear, click Finish.
#
10

The System savings change page will appear briefly then ask you to reboot your computer, click Yes.
