Is it possible to use RDC in XP home to connect to windows server
2003?

I was able to connect to Windows 2000 with RDC but then they went and
upgraded and they tell me I need XP pro now.

Is this true or will xp home work?

Yes, if you have Remote Desktop (admin mode) or Terminal Services (app mode,
with TS licences)

No, it will work. You'd need XP Pro if you wanted to join a domain, but you
can use an RD client even on Win9x.

This may be a license issue, but not even XP Pro is comp'ed a license
in TS mode like it was with a Win2K TS...

Thanks guys, we are getting XP pro and apparently the other users who
had Xp home and have upgraded to Xp pro can access the server now.
From all that I have read xp home should work, I am not too fimilar
with remote networking, all that I did with Xp home and windows 2000
was enter an ip address into RDC and I was able to connect, is that
considered joining the domain?

Another question, I have been a reader of newsgroups for a while but I
have never posted before. How come this response didnt show up in the
thread?
