It seems that I am having an intermittent issue.  From a Windows XP machine, I have no issues whatsoever connecting to my Windows 2000 server.  But when I attempt to connect to the 2000 server from my Windows 7 machine it fails.  I receive an error in regards to a licensing issue.  Any fixes?

Workaround: download and install the RDP Client version 5.2 for running Remote Desktop sessions against a Windows 2000 Terminal Server.

Limitation: At 1920x1080 or 1920x1200 display resolution, the Windows 2000 Remote Desktop won't be full screen even though the client is set for full screen - black bars will appear on the sides.


According to Microsoft.  Windows 7 RDP is not supported to run on Server W2K.

Also, there are some third party RDP that may work.
