Windows 2000 Terminal Server and Services

Microsoft's Terminal Services grew out of a partnership with Citrix's WinFrame product. Eventually it became Windows NT Terminal Server in Windows NT 4.0, and it is now a service in Windows 2000. Terminal Services allows low end PC's to connect to a designated server and use the servers processing power to run applications and store data (similar to "dumb terminals" that were used years ago). The new integration into Windows 2000 allows Remote Administration possibilities without using third party software.

Terminal Services Advanced Client
The Terminal Services Advanced Client (TSAC) is available on the Windows 2000 SP1 CD in the 'valueadd' directory, and is not a component of SP1 itself. As such, the TSAC is not included in the SP1 Web download, but it can be downloaded separately from the TSAC download page. The TSAC is a Win32©-based ActiveX? control (COM object) that can be used to run Terminal Services sessions within Microsoft Internet Explorer.
