OK, here I am with my iBook in a Windows 2000 Network.
I have a Windows 2000 Professional Box sitting in front of me.
What do I have to do to make RDC work?
I have tried to start the Telnet and RD Services but without success!
I read about a Firewall problem, blocking traffic on RD ports, yet I would expect it to be out of the way if I\'m inside the LAN, am I right?

Well, Remote Desktop / Terminal Services is only available on Windows 2000 Server and Windows XP, so you're out of luck with Windows 2000 Professional.

So I am using an iBook at the Windows/*nix/Mac computer consultancy office that I work in.

All of my clients' windows servers have terminal services running and RDC lets me access them as if I am using terminal services client on a 2000 workstation.

Now the reason you are not able to get to a 2000 workstation is that they do not run a terminal services server. I do not know if they can even do such a thing. There may be some hack out there for it, but I highly doubt you can run a real MS Terminal services server on a 2000 workstation.

Ok, so I just saw pclaerhout's answer and he is absolutely correct.

Ok I also have windows 2000 pro and a ibook. How is that windows allow you to download a client so that ou can use rdc when connecting with another windows os. There is no software out there that can activate the terminal service.
