    Hi Guys,

    Does Win2000Pro have Remote Desktop host built-in? What can I use instead if it is not?

    Thanks

    To answer your second question, if it doesn't, take a look at one of the VNC flavors...RealVNC, TightVNC, UltraVNC (this is what I use).
    I actually prefer using VNC to Remote Desktop, but you should use both and see what you feel more comfortable with.

    (If I recall...) Remote Desktop is a Windows XP feature. The closest feature of Windows 2000 is terminal services, which, as the name suggests, is a remote Terminal, no GUI (Great for using B!tchX at college.. wouldn't encourage that though ;P)

    VNC's definitely your best bet for remotely using your machine.
