  • Terminal services

    hi all,

    i have installed Win 2K3 Enterprise edition on my PC but not made it DC, i have connected it to my office workgroup.

    I wanted more than one user to access it through "Remote Desktop" so first I have made it a Terminal Server. As per a friend's suggestion i went to Computer Management-->Groups-->Remote Desktop Users-->Add group. The problem is..... all computer names in my workgroup are not being shown in the list to add. Why is this ?

    also i added "Everyone" but still more than one person cannot access my PC.

    Please help !! thanks

    In a workgroup setting, everyone needs to have a user account on that machine to be able to logon to it. Any reason why you don't want to join it to the domain? It makes life so much easier - and if you can afford Enterprise edition then you should be able to afford a DC...

        Sounds to me you are running T/S in admin mode.
        Check in Control Panel / Add Remove programs / Add Remove Windows Components.
        Once activated you have 90 or 120 days befor you have to purchase Cals.
