  • Terminal services / RDP server in Vista

    Do any flavours of Vista come with a terminal services / remote desktop server application ? I am looking for a means to give a small number of people on Windows 2000 clients access to a Vista machine for training purposes ie see what Vista is without installing it.

    So the ability to host say 4 remote desktop sessions on Vista would be helpful.

    Otherwise I'll look at RealVNC et al.

    Thanks,

    Phil

    No. You can only use one session of RDP (to the console) and/or the Remote Assistance feature.

      thanks, RealVNC looks to be the way to go then. Phil.

        You might want to try out a Virtual setup e.g.:
        http://www.microsoft.com/technet/try/vhd/default.mspx

        MS offer a 30 day Virtual version of Vista Enterprise, with or without Office 2007

        As long as your PCs have the specs to run Virtual PC 2007 (about 1GB RAM so 512 to the virtual machine) this is your easiest way.

          RealVNC also only gives access to the console session; I'm not sure there IS a way to host multiple TS sessions on a workstation OS.

            It's possible in WinXP: http://riccardo.raneri.it/blog/eng/i...emote-desktop/
            but not (as far as I know) in Vista.
            I'd go with Tom's (Ossian) suggestion and create a few virtual's with Vista.
