Terminal 2000 connection RDP

Hi Experts,

I hope someone can help with this, I have a windows 2000 terminal server which is used to remote into our LAN.

we did have a support company who looked after this and have previously set up 3-4 users to be able to log in with the domain credentials.

the support company no longer look after this and I wanted to add someone else so they can access our LAN.

I think its in terminal services configuration or something but I have no experience with this. I have tried to google it and almost all answers are either with regards to 2003 onwards or tell me how to configure the terminal server for remote access - which I don't need to do because its already set up. I just want to add someone else to it.

all the best,

Hi Toni,

I have attached a picture of what I can see when I get to this stage.

I can see two deleted users, because only SIDs are displayed.
Delete those two entries and add user accounts which need to access the server.
