Citrix could another option worth evaluating. (I personally find it better than PCAnywhere.)

  The primary reason for problems with terminal server is that it is just that - a terminal.

  VNC and PcAnywhere actually take control of the console on a Windows machine.

  A default Oracle install requires console access for certain things, such as starting
  the database from a command line using svrmgrl or sqlplus.

  Be careful using Terminal Server. If you are running batch jobs, the variables like ORACLE_SID and ORACLE_HOME don't always get picked up correctly by the batch job. I have spent hours trying to debug a script run with Terminal Server, then switch to VNC and it works fine.

  Windows Terminal services that comes with Windows (in Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs, Add/Remove Windows Components, then install Windows Terminal Client on admin PC).

  Bigger hassle to install and configure, but a LOT better performer than PCAnywhere or VNC (other two "usual suspects" for remoting unremoteable).
