JSI Tip 4503. You can't connect to a console session on a Windows 2000 server using Windows XP's Mstsc.exe /console?

Even though the Help and Support says that you can use the /console switch to connect to a Windows 2000 server's console session (session 0), you can't?

Mstsc.exe is the Remote Desktop Connection tool.

The Help and Support is incorrect.

You can use the /console switch to connect to the console session of a Windows XP Professional computer.
