Virtual Server and RDP

I know we are all computer professionals and always use Microsoft Virtual server for demos and stuff. I heard a few comments from people saying they hated Virtual Server Remote Control view but would like to use full screen RDP. So here is an easy way to RDP into your Virtual Servers.

Let say you are running Virtual Server from your laptop for a demo, to use RDP, assign an IP address to your physical laptop (host) in the same subnet as your virtual guest server(s) IP address. For example, if the IP address of the Virtual Server is, assign to your physical laptop. Make sure the network cable is connected to somewhere or you can use a "dummy" cross-over cable (loopback cable).
