Windows Terminal Services Tip

On Windows, if you use this command line to start a Terminal Services session

mstsc -v:<server name> -f -console

you'll end up connected to the console session on the target machine regardless of which Windows version it's running.

Very useful if you're wanting to connect to a Windows 2xxx Server which normally always connects you to a known session.

With the obligatory thumbs up to Rich for educating me on this topic.
