Hi, when I had Win2K Pro on my laptop I could use Terminal Services to remotely manage a win2k server. Now I've upgraded to WinXP Pro on my laptop and there is no longer a Terminal Services client. I guess I need to use Remote Desktop, but any documentation I find is for setting up this laptop to accept connections. Nothing about connecting to another machine.

What application do I need to fire up to access the remote server?

Thanks!

But what does it mean by "type your computer name"?

Does it mean \\computer?
Does it mean computer.domain.com?

this could be clearer.

From a remote location over the public internet use the public IP/fully qualified domain name of the
PC or if the PC is behind a firewall/NAT/router then the public IP (assuming TCP Port 3389 is
forwarded to the private LAN IP of the PC). If its on a local LAN then use its network name or LAN
IP address.

Hi! Well here it goes, you have to use remote desktop
connection to manage the servers like you said, if you
have to connect to a vpn to ge to those servers you must
do so first. once you do that just go to the rdc box and
type in the full server name...servername.domain.etc.
that shold be all you need to do

longer a Terminal Services client. I guess I need to use

It is called the Remote Desktop Connection Client... It is also
available by typing in "mstsc" from a command prompt..
