If I am reading your question right, then I have to disagree with the other posted answers. No, you cannot connect to Win2K Professional or NT4 Workstations machines using Terminal Services. Those 2 client operating systems do not support TS in that way. They can only connect to TS servers, like Win2K Server or a server running Citrix.

Now, XP DOES have its own TS engine built in. XP clients can accept 1 incoming connection at a time, if it is enabled.

But I think what you really want is to take remote control of the user desktop of the client workstations. One program that will do this very nicely is Dameware NT Utilities. It has a Remote Control option that is very sweet! You can connect to a client workstation (any Windows operating client and/or server system from NT4 up to Win2K3), remotely install the Dameware remote control client, and then run it. So, from your desk, you can connect to each user workstation in your office, and see the user desktop!

hope this helps
