Terminal Services Client Install?

By KahunaNui ·
In our MS Win2000 Pro Resource Kit on page 306 under "Using Terminal Services to Manage Remote Computers" second to last paragraph we read: "On client computers, install the appropriate Terminal Services client software to connect to the server." After that, we read: "To install Terminal Services for remote administration 1. In Control Panel, click Add/Remove Programs. 2. In the dialog box, click Add/Remove Windows Components. 3. In the Windows Components wizard, under Components, select the Terminal Services check box, and then click Next."

However, we don't see anything like this in our Windows Components on any of our Win2000 Pro systems? There is no "Terminal Services check box". Can anyone enlighten us as to what in the world the Microsoft Resource Guide is telling us, or was this written from the Twilight Zone?

How do we install Terminal Services Client on Win2000Pro and NT4 Workstations? Thanks for the help!

The remote administration install is only on the terminal server machine, i.e Windows 2000 or 2003 server... Probaly bunched the Ts documentation into one document covering all Ts instructions...


This will fix you right up...

Happy Trails

The client can be installed from the server itself by sharing the following folder:

c:\Winnt\system32\Clients\TsClient

Then run setup in the win32 folder on the Win2000 Pro PC.

Since a TS Client is likely to be at a remote location, this is what you can do. From the Terminal Server, create the 2 TS Client Software installation diskettes. Go to the Control Panel, Terminal Services Client Creator, and follow the directions. Then use these diskettes to install Terminal Services client onto the remote PCs. From those PCs, you will then need to configure the static IP address for the server to connect to the server. Hope this helps .... Kahuna iki

To say the same thing differently:

Terminal services in installed on Windows 2000 Server only. Client computers connect using the remote client (or Remote Desktop in XP pro).

So 2000 pro can only run the client and not terminal services itself.

Additionally, Active Directory and a Domain Controller are required for Terminal Services installation.
