    Answers (April 26, 2002)

    Answer to Question 1
    The correct answer is C—Run the Control Panel Add/Remove Programs applet; click Add/Remove Windows Components and select Internet Information Services, Details, World Wide Web Services (Details), and Remote Desktop Web Connection. The connection isn't installed by default because Remote Desktop Web Connection can pose a security risk. Using this Web page will install an ActiveX plugin that can substitute for the full Windows 2000 Server Terminal Services client.

    Answer to Question 2
    The correct answer is C—http://bofh.oksanatech.org.au/tsweb. XP's Web-based Terminal Services client is a fast and easy way to access Terminal Services. Terminal Services, in turn, provides an excellent way to remotely administer Windows .NET and Win2K servers. Win2K requires an add-on to enable this functionality, but Microsoft has built it into XP.

    Answer to Question 3
    The correct answers are C—Right-click My Computer, and select Manage, Local Users and Groups, Groups. Open the Remote Desktop Users group, and add the PFY group; and E— Right-click My Computer, select Properties, and select the Remote tab. Select "Allow Users to connect to this computer remotely," click "Select Remote Users," and use AD to add the PFY group. Either method—defining who can access Remote Desktop or defining who can access Remote Control—will accomplish your goal. Note that this question asks about Remote Desktop, not Remote Assistance. Setting up one machine for Remote Desktop access might be useful for several reasons. You might want to use the connection to access a specific application or configure it for special services through the firewall.
