  • Terminal Services Client

    Hi all, im setting up a terminal server on 15 -20 workstation network. I have got the terminal server all installed and setup but i need to know how to set up the clients so they can only log into the terminal server.

    Any help would be much appreciated

    Re: Terminal Services Client

    Hi, Pulsen.
    To tell you the truth, it depends
    First, what OS is your Terminal Server? Win2000 or Win2003? And your users? What OS do they have on their clients?
    Next, what do your users do while connecting to the Terminal Server? Do they need Desktop (with work documents, e-mail client and so on)? Or just to run an application?
    I could have answered you "Go and define an RDP connection", but that would be an answer based on what I think you have. And I feel is not right to do it.
    BTW, are you working in an Active Directory environment?

    I'm waiting for some additional info from you, so I'll be able to provide you with the exact answer.

      Thanks for the reply. The terminal server is on a Win2003 and the users are using Windows XP Pro. We want the users to be running the applications of the server. Yes it is an AD environment.

      I know its probably a simple question and i was expecting alot of smart arse answers, but thank you for helping!

        Cool. The process is pretty simple.
        There are some links I can suggest you to check:

        http://support.microsoft.com/kb/814585
        http://www.windowsnetworking.com/art...ws-XP-Pro.html - pretty good article, with a lot of info about RDP in general...
        If you really want to bang your head hard, you can build your RDP file with a text editor, following the steps from this article:

        HTH. Keep us posted.

          Thanks for the reply, i didnt realise it was that simple. I had a different perception of Terminal Services then, i thought that the user started up there computer and the screen that they saw to log in was actually the remote desktop connection and when they logged in they saw a XP (or what ever OS) but infact the user using TS is seeing a 2003 server screen

            Just another question, when a client starts a Terminal server session, should they see a Windows 2003 Server log on box? or have i set it up wrong?

              I'm glad you managed.
              Regarding the logon box, they actually should.
              You can, however, bypass that by entering the credentials of the user into the RDC (Remote Desktop Connection) file. This is not advisable, though, because it will allow anyone sitting on that computer to have access to the server.
              For this to work the user will have to have a non-empty password.
