    Remoting to 2k8 from 2k3 or xp

    I'm confused because I'm sure I've remoted to it from somewhere but wondering if that was a vista machine. Is there anyway of connecting? I need to shut it down so it can be transported over to this building.

    Doing this on my phone so a bit brief

    Try downloading the latest version of remote desktop for XP.

    Failing that you need to change some setting on the 2k8 server. Computer > Properties > Remote Settings > Change the setting to 'Allow Connections from computers running any version of Remote Desktop'.
