The one thing that would benefit is if you could get it working over Java.
The current implementation is only ActiveX within IE.  It would be nice if
Netscape, and other browser, clients could get in on the action as well.

But, you are right about the licensing.  a TSAC costs about $85/connection,
regardless of where it comes from, except W2K (which is a free connection
license).

Now I could be dumber than the average bear, but what are the benefits of
using
a linux box to connect to W2K Terminal Server.  Wouldn't you still need a
license for each user to connect to Terminal Server?  Can't you already use
a
dos box to connect to Terminal Server?
