Free Terminal Services Client win98

I have looked on and google but cannot find an answer. Does anyone know where I can download a terminal services client for windows98, if at all.

You install it from the Terminal Services Client directory that's created when you install the Server.

Terminal Services or Remote Desktop (for logging in remotely to a server)???

I got confused over the naming and was looking for TS when I wanted RD. If the latter then you can get it from here:

Thanks, I'll look. I don't want the server I just want the client to connect to a remote server. I am on windows98 though, not 2000/XP.

there's this wacky "create install disks" option on the menu of a TS server. used to be the only way to install the client--you'd create disks, then stick them back in the machine.

don't remember if the client ran on win98 or not.

Remote desktop *is* terminal services. The best way is to go to this website on microsoft:

Do not let the windows XP title confuse you. This client will work for 98/ME/NT 4/2000/ and XP

-You should use this client over the terminal services client. It fixes numerous bugs since those were released, and is compatible with every version of terminal services.

-And hey, if you need a client for linux...go to

Also, my impression from MS's site is that they're trying to push people towards using the remote desktop activeX control rather than the stand alone client.

And if you're talking about having a lot of client computers (and you've got an IIS server around that can host the control), this might be an easier approach than installing the remote desktop/terminal services stand-alone client on all the client computers.
