RDP License



I have XPsp2 and Windows 2003 sp1. Why when I connect to my 2003 DC from XP
am I suddenly getting eror messages about no Terminal Services Client Access
Licenses available? I have not installed TS at all in our domain and I have
configured the DC for RDP for me - the enterprise administrator.
I have the same problem now with a support company trying to use L2TP to get
in to RDP with XP to our web server- worked before, but not anymore with same
license problem.
Any ideas?

Seems that you installed Terminal Services anyway on your 2003 DC. If
you only need 2 connections, for Remote Administration, then
uninstall Terminal Services completely (Control Panel - Add/Remove
Windows Components), and just enable Remote Administration, in
Control Panel - System - Remote.
