Usng terminal services

By johnmiles_98 ·
I currently use Terminal Services to run remote Windows 2000 Server sessions for administration.
First let me say, This question has nothing to do with Windows XP Remote Assistance. Thanks

A co-worker has recently told me that you could use a version of terminal server to run remote Windows 2000 Professional sessions (accessing Workstation's for end users). We have been using VNC for this, but at times this can be choppy and slow and requires alot of coordination with users. Thus this tool falls into the hit and miss category. Has anyone else heard of using Terminal Services to access Remote Windows 2000 Professional Machines? And if so, where do I get some data for this?

You need to install Office Pro on the Server but there is a "trick" to make it work. First you need to download the office resource kit to a local workstation then copy the "termsrvr.mst" program to the root directory of the terminal server. When you install office you need to modify the command line for the installation program box to:
setup.exe Transforms="path:\TermSrvr.mst" where path is the location of the .mst file you copied.

I think Answer 1 missed the point of your question.

The simple answer is no. There is no current version of Terminal Services available from Microsoft that will allow remote access to a Win2K Pro workstation.

There are ways to make Netmeetingfunction as Remote Desktop software. Open Netmeeting (v3.0) Help and choose Contents. One of the major subjects is Remote Desktop Sharing.

Hope this helps.
