5.1.2 Web-Based Administration
A new feature in Windows Server 2003 is the capability to perform Remote Administration from any
Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0 or later browser without a locally installed client. This allows you to
connect to and remotely administer a server using Terminal Services from any client system that is capable
of running Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0 or later. This feature uses the Remote Desktop Web Connection
utility, which consists of an ActiveX component that is downloaded to the client browser and sample Web
pages that the client uses to connect to. The Remote Desktop Web Connection utility, however, requires that
Internet Information Services 6.0 be installed on the server.
