Terminal Service in NT4

By athars ·
How would I install Terminal service on an NT4 server? Where would I get the service and what is the procedure? I need this so I can use Remote Desktop to connect to it. Suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Remote Desktop

by timwalsh In reply to Terminal Service in NT4

You cannot use Remote Desktop to connect with an NT4 server. Remote Desktop is essentially Terminal Services as included in Win2K Server. You cannot install this version of Terminal Services on an NT4 server.

To enable Terminal Services on an NT4 server, you need WinNT Terminal Server (no longer available from Microsoft). You would then need to install the TS client for WinNT Terminal Server on whichever remote client you want to connect from.

You need to either upgrade to Win2K serveror install some other remote control software. You might take a look at VNC at
