    Terminal Services

    Opinions? I want to be at home and service my box (said the hooker....). Right now I am using Term Services right here in my house where my server is at the moment and think it is just dandy. Though I am a rookie.
    Stupid, but trying.

    Terminal Services is one of the quickest, most secure way to admin a W2K box.

    Yeah Terminal Services has less of a demand on the servers CPU(s) than others such as VNC. Although I always keep VNC on for when I need to manipulate the physical desktop for items such as Tomcat.

    Just remember that VNC communication is not encrypted as is.

    Just as a note. I have 3 Win2k servers that i use remotely anywhere on. Not only can can you manipulate the desktop (like VNC) but you can use an interface that connects directly to the system. so services for instance can be edited just from a webbased control panel.

    It also give the ability to Install SSL ( creates a certificate of its own)

    As per RemotelyAnywhere

    Remote Control
    Web-based Administration
    WAP Compatibility
    SSH and Telnet Servers
    FTP Server
    Tight Security
    ...and more
    [url]I got nothing/url]

    For clarity's sake, don't use "<ip address of hostname>" use the ACTUAL 32-bit numeric IP address of the machine.
