Hour 19. Implementing Terminal Services > Connecting to the Terminal Server

Connecting to the Terminal Server

Terminal server clients use the Remote Desktop client to connect to a terminal server. This client is built into Windows clients such as Windows XP and Windows Vista, and is also available on server platforms such as Windows Server 2008. You can download and install the most recent version of Remote Desktop to client computers by searching http://www.microsoft.com for the latest update.

Connecting to a terminal server is really quite easy for your network users. Because they have a domain username and the appropriate password, they can open the Remote Desktop window and then log on to the terminal server. You can designate the terminal server by using the server name or the server’s IP address. Let’s look at connecting a Windows Vista Remote Desktop client to a Windows Server 2008 terminal server.
