XP's RDC app requires its protocol and service. I do not think that MS placed that software to compete in the RD management software market. It is an user-level tool for that eventual all-out XP.

But we cannot consider this software as a true remote desktop tool for admins, even when that all-out XP environment turns up.

Remote Control

by timwalsh In reply to RCP Win2000Pro

The short answer to your question is no.

The Remote Desktop function built in to WinXP is a subset of Win2K Server Terminal Services. This functionality is not built in to Win2K Pro. To acces Win2K Pro from a remote desktop, you would need to use third-party remote control software.

One of the most popular (because it is free) is VNC.
