Remote Desktop - No Terminal Server License Servers Errors

If you had administrative right with your PC and has the following error with Remote Desktop Connection, this post may help.

You can use mstsc command to workaround this error. MSTSC (MS Terminal Server Connection) creates connections to Remote Desktop Session Host (RD Session Host) servers or other remote computers, edits an existing Remote Desktop Connection (.rdp) configuration file, and migrates legacy connection files that were created with Client Connection Manager to new .rdp connection files.

You can use mstsc.exe /admin to create and connect a administrating session with the sever.

Steps as follows

1. Assuming you are using WinXP. At Start menu -> Run, type mstsc.exe

2. It will launch a Remote Connection Application with administrative setup

3. Enter your remote IP and connect.
