Connecting to the windows 2003 console from XP

Microsoft documented (my comments in brackets):

To connect to the console, administrators can choose one of the following methods:

  • Use the Remote Desktop Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in

(Download from god knows where and super near impossible to find from the microsoft site)

  • Run the Remote Desktop Connection (mstsc.exe) program with the /console switch.

(Easiest to use but its through cmd or via "Run"on the start menu. E.g. mstsc /v: /console)

  • Create Remote Desktop Web Connection pages that set the ConnectToServerConsole property.

(hmm? Clearly very well documented as that was about all that was mentioned, just use the previous example. Its almost like another hidden feature in XP like netmeeting.)
