Hi All,

Just wondering if RDP is the same thing as Terminal Session?

I'm want to know because i havent seen RDP link you back to locally attached printers or shared drives.

Any help would be great. thanks.

Regards
Steve

Hi,

Just wondering would i need to have TS CALs to be able to use WinXP Pro to RDP to Win 2003 Server?

Is this because of Microsoft Equivelancy program which stated that if you owned a copy of W2K Pro and you were connecting to W2K Server then you would not need to buy TS CAL. I thougth MS stopped this when someone implemented 2003 Server?

So, ie, owning a copy of WinXP Pro automatically gives you a license and the only time you need to have TS CALs is when connecting from a workstation running W2K Pro? Please correct me if i'm wrong.

Thanks again

You do not need Cals just for connecting remotely for administration purposes. If you were using the TS server for users to connect and use applications, then Cals would come into play. You would typically buy them in block according to how many users that were going to be using the Terminal Server (Remote Desktop)

thanks...

Now i'm a little confused... If i log onto 2003 server via RDP and run a program, say MS Word installed on the server, wouldnt that be loading an application??
