I have installed Microsoft VPN connection on my WIN98SE laptop and have a successful VPN connection to the Win 2000 server at my work.

However step 2 is to connect (log on to server) using Remote Desktop Connection - this always times out.

Is there a trick to get WIN98 to connect to Win2000 using remote desktop connection or is this only possible if one of the computers is XP?

All settings are correct as I can connect from XP laptop to 2000 server using same settings.

I really want to be able to do it from the 98 laptop as the other is in constant use by my husband.

The remote desktop works if connected in to office network so it is all installed OK - just can't get from the VPN connection to the server interface using the remote desktop connection.

Please note: this is NOT a problem with admin rights or firewalls as I am getting through from the XP machine.

Any ideas?

After seeing some more Microsoft articles on the subject, I've come to the conclusion that at least either the server or the client has to be XP for RDC to work and that for 98 client to 2000 server Terminal Services Client is the appropriate software, but this requires licencing both for the server and the client.

Correct?
