Quickly Connect to Remote Computers
Yes! Besides using the usual “Manage” option for any Windows 2000 or XP computer, you can use a cool tool to control any computer that has Terminal Services installed on it! The tool is called “Remote Control Add-on for Active Directory Users & Computers”. Remote Control is a small add-on that adds the option to right-click a computer account in the Active Directory MMC and choose “Remote Control” on that computer, by opening a Terminal/Remote Desktop connection to that computer. Remote Control relies on the Remote Desktop Connection application which is available in Windows XP Professional and/or Windows Server 2003s only. Therefore, it can only work from Active Directory Users & Computers MMC on these operating systems only.
