Microsoft Windows NT Server 4.0, Terminal Server Edition is an extension to the Windows NT Server product line that delivers the Windows experience to diverse desktop hardware through terminal emulation. Terminal Server supports a full range of clients and it enhances computing environments by extending the scalable Windows family and combining the low cost of a terminal with the benefits of a managed Windows-based environment.

Come see how Microsoft's Terminal Server can make use of older network computers and lower the cost of new ones. A Microsoft systems engineer will demonstrate the technology and be available for questions and answers.
