JSI Tip 4910. The .NET Server Adminpak.msi has a 'Connect to Console' Remote Desktop snap-in.

When you install the Adminpak.msi on Windows XP, the Remote Desktops MMC snap-in, TSmmc.msc is installed.

The TSmmc.msc GUI has a Connect to console check box that allows you to connect to the console, session 0, of a .NET Server.

NOTE: When using TSmmc.msc to connect to a Windows XP Professional with Remote Desktop enabled, the check box is irrelevant, as it only allows session 0 connections.

NOTE: If you use TSmmc.msc to connect to a Windows NT 4.0 Terminal Server or a Windows 2000 Server with Terminal Services enabled, the check box is ignored and a RDP session is established.
