Hey guys I have 2 windows XP proffessional . I want to configure remote desktop , so that I can remotely control both machines from 1 machine itself. But after doing the configuration on both computers, when I am trying to do remote desktop on 1 machine..a message is coming that a terminal server is not available. how can I install terminal serbver or I need to install server 2003 to do it.

    are the 2 machines behind firewall?

    are these 2 machines in the same subnet? ie, your home network?
    When you connect to machine 2 from machine 1, or vice versa, are you connecting by IP, or hostname?

    also, double check that "Terminal Services" is started in Services MMC in administrative tools.

    You enabled Remote Desktop from the System Properties, correct? You didn't accidentally enable Remote Assistance instead did you? Just asking... they are two different things.
    All things are possible, only believe.
