    I am trying to figure out how you would remote control a client using a Windows 2K server. I know you can use terminal emulation to remote control a Server from a client but how do you do it the other way around? Thanks.

    You can use the desktop sharing option of Netmeeting. It works like a charm and it is free.

    That's interesting about Netmeeting. But does it not require the remote PC to have someone there to invoke Netmeeting and then accept remote access? I normally use PC Anywhere. Once installed you can remotely control a PC or server without any interactive on the remote PC.

    You can start the remote desktop sharing part at logon.

    There has to be a user who activates the sharing part.

    For the server part we use Terminal Server in Administration mode.


    In the company I work for at the moment this is always the only possibilty, because of privacy etc.
