Q

Can you run a remote Terminal Services session on Win98 or WinXP?

I am wondering if it is possible to set up a Terminal Services session or a remote desktop session on a Windows 98 or XP machine?
Unfortunately, it is not. Only the Windows XP operating system supports Remote Desktop because only that desktop operating system includes the server portion of RDP. You could, of course, consider using a third-party remote access tool such as PC anywhere.
