"remote desktop connection" with W2K?

Hi, I am trying to setup a new server. My other servers were LINUX based and I would SSH into them and do stuff. Well, that does not work with this windows based server.

Tech support says I need to use remote desktop connection. But I don't see that on my computer. A quick yahoo search seems to make me think it comes with XP. Is there something for Windows 2000?

Thanks!

I'm pretty sure I use UltraVNC on our work server and I believe it is freeware.

Thanks, now looking for it. Is this for the server side or the client side? I am looking for something to run on my home W2K system that can log into the remote server. I can't install the server software, because I don't have root access.

It's called Terminal Services and it's something you install as a Windows Component in the Add/Remove Programs control panel applet on the server.

On the client side it's called the Terminal Services Client. I forget if it's installed automatically with Windows. It should be under Accessories->Communications.

Remember, it's potentially a big security hole and you need to open up port 3389 on your firewall if it's not already open. You should be using VPN or have some other secure connection if you're using it.
