How to enable remote desktop for console login on a Terminal Server?
Connecting to the console, however, is another matter. Once terminal services is enabled, the default connection to remote desktop for the machine will enable a terminal service, not console connection. In order to get a console connection, you must create an *.RDP setting for the machine, and edit it to connect to the console.
For example, for newton.eecs, call up a mstsc (Microsoft Terminal Services Client) or remote desktop connection, add all connectivity info to it, and (after enabling more options), save that remote desktop profile to the desktop as an RDP file, say newton.RDP
