I'll have to presume a lot but here goes. I figure you're running a current OS like 2000 or XP on the client and therefore you are running the RDP client vs the old Terminal Services Client. One is just the replacement for the other.

So presuming you're using RDP client you can make the change under Options - Display. Now if that doesn't have any affect you will have to look at the Terminal server side to see if it is restricting the client and what the servers display is set at. Client won't go over the servers settings in either case.

If not using RDP client you should. It is built-in to XP and a download for 2000.

Yes, open up Remote Desktop Connection on the client > click on Options > click on the Display tab. There is a dropdown to increase the color spectrum up to 24 bit. Keep in mind that it can only go as high as what the client's video driver can support.

The server is a Windows 2000 server. It's video has the latest driver and is set at 800x600 32bit true color. Both the 2000 RDP and XP RDP clients only list color support at 256 colors. All clients video are currently set to 800x600 and either 24 bit or 32 bit true color.

if you are using terminal server on a windows 2000 server, the maximun resolution is 256 colors. Windows 2003 server uses more than 256 colors, like 16 millions colors
