My Error Message is:

The Client Could not establish a connection to the remote computer

The most likely causes for this error are:
1. Remote Connections might not be enabled at the remote computer.
2. The maximum number of connections was exceeeded at the remote computer.
3. A network error occured while establishing the connection.

Are you able to access any shares/printers attached to the W2K Term
Servers? This will help diagnose any name resolution problems that
may be happening with that machine.

Also, verify that you are using the proper netmask for your Local
Network Adapter.

I can browse Teminal Servers directory structure and shared printers. I also have confirmed the correct IP and subnet mask (DHCP).

Could there be a TS Client licensing issue since I'm not a part of the ADS domain? If I change the permissions to allow Anonymous Users for the RDP TCP Connector I get a different error message.

It shouldn't be - it should automatically pull a license from your
license server (or if it is W2K Term Server in App Mode and you are
running XP Pro - you would be comped a license).

Weird...
