I’m on an XP client and trying to connect to a remote W2k3 server through an ssh gateway.

  1. Set up SSH so that a local port (not 3389) is forwarded to 3389 on the server.
  2. Run the remote desktop client from the command line. “mstsc /v:localhost:[forwarded_port] /console”

The /console argument lets you connect without having a terminal services license server running. But only one person per box can connect using this.. but thats fine, its one of my personal development box anyways, so that’s fine.
