I'm using Remote Desktop Connection 2.11 on Mac OS X 10.6.8, trying to connect to a Windows 2000 Server. I type in the IP (local) and it warns me that it can't verify the identity of the computer, I hit "Connect", it opens a black window (as if it were about to work) then immediately crashes:

Microsoft Error Reporting log version: 2.0

Anyone have any ideas on what I can do to get it to work? It works perfectly fine connecting to Win Server 2008 R2.

Can you connect to the Win2K box from another PC? – Bart De Vos Feb 28 '12 at 17:39
Not sure, don't have access to another PC. I downloaded an open-source program on the Mac called CoRD which let me connect to the Win2k box, but I'd rather not use that program if I don't have to. – David Feb 28 '12 at 17:41

Honestly, I'm not surprised. Support for Windows 2000 Server ended on July 13, 2010. So it's probably a client-software fault because it can't handle the exception thrown by Win2K.
