Experiencing remote-console problem

I need software that can print from Windows NT4 the volume directory with sub directories showing the size of the files. Also, is there remote software that can get the main server console to my station?

The quick and dirty way to do this is with the good old DIR command:
dir c: /s
This would produce a complete list of all the files and directories on the C: drive. To echo this to a file, use dir c: /s > [ filename ].

Since Windows NT 4.0 doesn't have Remote Desktop or a similar technology, you may want to look into VNC as a possible solution to your remote-console problem. I have recommended this in the past as a very good cross-platform way to connect to a remote desktop no matter what the operating system is on either end.
