1 of 2 ways:
Either VIA IP address or Machine name
Considering you said "desktop server" it would be IP address

what?

I need to know how to make a hyperlink for a web page that will launch the remote desktop client and connect to a
terminal server

such as http://192.168.168.10:3389
or
"C:\Program Files\Remote Desktop\mstsc.exe" server.rdp
or
file:///C:/Program%20Files/Remote%20Desktop/mstsc.exe%20//intranet/server.rdp

but that will not work

That won't work because you can't launch an executable via a html document.

You could probable do what you want using an .hta document because a hta can have system
privileges.
