Why Windows 7 desktop can not connect to Windows 2000 terminal server?

This is using MS Windows 2000 server terminal service. We got a bunch of users using MS Windows XP 32-bit desktops, and they were connecting and used it without problem. But not for the new desktops purchased as they are installed with windows 7 64-bit. On any of these windows 7 destop, no matter how we try, we can't connect to the windows 2000 terminal service. Does this mean any missing part? Any tool we have to install?

Thanks in advance!

Windows 2000 is getting very old, so compatiblity may be a problem.

Can you address the Terminal Server by IP Address?  And if so, does that help?

Otherwise Remote Desktop Connection V6.2.9 comes with Windows 7 Pro 64-bit and works with Server 2003 and up.

You *are* using Pro, correct?

Hello ,
I had the same problem and it turns out that in windows 2000 terminal services was sort of "FREE" so in windows 7 you needed a CAL. take a look at this and I hope it helps. . .
