Terminal Services

By btrue ·
Is it possible to setup Terminal Services on NT4? We currently have it setup on Windows 2000 Server, but would also like to do it in NT4. It is very convenient to be able to get into a server from a remote location.

Thanks!

Windows NT 4.0 standard did not come with TS.
Instead, Microsoft made Windows NT 4.0 Terminal Edition. I never actually saw a copy of NT4TE, but I think this is what you would want.
But, since you currently have a NT4 server, you can get a copy ofCitrix Metaframe. Citrix is the big thin-client application vendor out there. Metaframe is their client-server package. You install Metaframe on a NT4 server, and clients connect to Metaframe in thin-client style.

hope this helps

Actually, NT Terminal Server Edition is required for Metaframe. Metaframe adds more possible connections types and protocols by loading the correct ICA client for the end user.

NT4TE is a special edition. I have a copy and have used it with no problems. Please note, you do not need MetaFrame, as a previous answer states. You can use MetaFrame with NT4TE, but it is not necessary.

NT4TE must be purchased separately, and is not an upgrade from NT4. Also note, that there are separate service packs to use with NT4TE. Do not use the standard service packs.

Hope this helps

What I understand from your question is that you want terminal server so you can administer the Server and not for Thin Client usage. You can use either Net Meeting (which allows you to share the desktop and connect from a remote location). Or you can use VNC (which has the advantage that it works on any platform, mac, lynux, unix, and windows). You can download VNC from:

It's free. and it works.
