I'm guessing you are using Windows 2000 Terminal Server?  The licensing 
in 2003 TS is insanely different.  There is "per device" or "per user" 
-- but the "per user" model doesn't work at all.  Nada.  Even with 
windows clients.

Right now, my license is good until January 4th.  If I don't hear of a 
bad reason to switch to using the RDP v4 method, I'll probably just do 
that.  With "per device" licensing, and RDP v4, I get issued permanent 
licenses, not temporaries -- so I guess it's a workable workaround.

BTW, Chris -- in your script, the argument $@, does that pass ALL the 
flags to the actual program?  I have written wrapper scripts in the 
past, and had to do something like "program $1 $2 $3 $4 $5 $6" to make 
sure I got all the options passed...  if indeed $@ passes all the 
arguments, that's easier!
