Connecting to a Win2000 server using RDC

Feb 3, 2005
  1. Hi.

    We have several Win2000/2003 servers in our network. When connecting to a Win2003 server, I use the /console switch. This works fine, but this doesn't work when I try to connect to a Win2000 server. I get connected, but I don't get the console.

    Is it not possible to connect to the console on a Win2000 server using Remote Desktop Connection ?

    I'm trying this from a Win2000 Professional pc.

    Regards KBN.

    Sure it is - but you'll have to turn on Terminal Services on the 2K Server machine and give the proper permissions for the remote accounts.
