Remote Desktop Server+XP Home

Q: Remote Desktop Server+XP Home

Hi,
I have Windows XP home...at home, and I would like the capabilites of Remote Desktop Server so I can log into it from afar. Is this possible? Any recomendations? I don't want...or have for that matter...the money for XP Pro, plus I only want this one feature. Can that functionality be purchased or turned on? If not, any open source software that will do the same?

Thanks in advance

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

Hi. I saw on a website the other day that it is possible to group all your PCs together onto one database and back it all up, access it remotely etc. using Windows Remote Home Server.

The comps involved would be an XP pro, Vista Ultimate and a Vista home premium (which could, i suppose, be upgraded to ultimate)

Does anybody know how this would work as it would be very helpful... They all take their internet from 1 router if it helps.

thanks in advance

well, you cannot connect to the server in your company using remote desktop unless your machine and the server share the same IP bundle / are in the same domain.
An alternative is that you can use VPN to create a secure connection into your company's network and that should allow you to do a terminal session on the server.
However you will have to talk to your IT team if you want this done.

Hey, I'm having some trouble with Remote Desktop.

Our server is using windows server 07 R2, remote is enabled, server is on a domain.

Ive also tried, disabling the remote and re-enabling, reinstalling the video driver, asigning a new ip address.

Hi,

I have an account at work on a microsoft exchange server. Is there anyway for me to configure my outlook xp on my home machine so as to receive mails from this server?

I tried the following so far. I went to my control panel and clicked on Mail - Email Accounts-Add a new Email Account. The I selected Microsoft Exchange server from the options available to me. I put in the server name (xxxxxxmail.abc.com) and in the field where it says User name, I put in the user name I usually use to connect to my server at work (is the same user name I use to connect to Outlook Web Access for the same account).

A:Connecting outlook xp at home to remote mail server

Ewww, exchange from home. I just set up my first EX Server here at work. I'm no pro, but here's some of what I've learned.

First off, my guess is that the exchange server that you're trying to use won't allow you to connect to it via an Exchange account in Outlook.
Mainly because Exchange listens for clients on port 135, which is ripe for attacks, hence, most likely not available from the internet.
If you can connect through a vpn to the network that the exchange server is on, that's the way to go. Otherwise...

Setting up a POP3 account in Outlook may work. If you want, you can set outlook to leave a copy of your emails on the server, so you'll be able to still see all of them while using the exchange account (in the office or whatnot).
BUT...with that setup, there's a good chance that from home, you'll only be able to receive emails but not send them. That's partially because many ISP's, in an effort to slow down spam senders, block the ports used for sending email out. But you block some, you block all.
Fortunately there is a bit of a way to skirt around that if your isp has their own email servers set up the right way (for you):
In outlook, in your POP3 account, there is an area where you put in the name of your pop and smtp servers.
If you can recieve email from your mail server, your half-way there. Leave that as is.
But if you cannot send, find out from your isp (most likely somewhere on their website) the addres... Read more

A:Server 2008 remote desktop

If you must do a naked RDC connection, then you'll need to set up a port forward rule on your home's firewall to allow inbound connections on TCP port 3389 to the private IP address of your Server 2008. This is assuming your place of work does not have firewall restrictions preventing RDP connections outbound from their network.

A much more secure way to do this is to set up a VPN tunnel and then run a RDP connection to the server. Or at a minimum if your work place has a static IP address is to set up a firewall rule on your home's firewall to only allow RDP connections from the IP address of your work.

I am wondering if it would be practical to use RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol?) on an Win Server 2003 server to connect to another pc over the internet for the sole purpose of sending backups. I heard it is possible to make a client pc's harddrive mapped as a network drive and you can use that drive as if it were a regular network drive, helping me to do backups offsite.

How secure is it? Can i make it more secure? What do i need to make it secure and how?

I can setup RDP but before I do, I wanted to research more into this topic concerning the security of it. I read somewhere that I would need to use PKI to send authentication certificates to prevent MITM (Man in the Middle) Attacks. Is this necessary? How can I set this up if needed?

The server will be pretty much be using RDP after hours. Can i program RDP to be enabled at certain time frames? Will having RDP enabled overnight compromise the security? I would guess so.....

Any suggestions or comments would be much appreciated. Thanks

If all systems are on your LAN, then a mapped drive is THE proper approach. Security is a non-issue and there is minimal data movement
to the backup system and/or attached HD.

research; never get enough of it!

Most products encrypt the data stream so that no one can tell what is happening.
However, some only encrypt the data, not the login and therefore expose the system to keylogging attacks.

Hey guys.

I have a file server (Windows XP Pro) that Iíve moved to my home. It is hooked up to a 2Wire Broadband Router (it has 5 RJ-45 ports) along with my other work PC (Also XP). I have successfully connected both machines to the internet, and have set-up file sharing. However, very soon other employees out of state will need access to the file server. I was thinking to have them use their Windows XP Remote Desktop to connect, but not quite sure how to set this up, as the file server has the private IP 192.168.1.30. How do I get other people to remotely access my server from their PC's? Also, do I have to set the file server as the DMZ on my 2Wire for this to work properly? Thanks for the help!
 

A:Remote Desktop on Server Question

Assign a static IP to the "file server" (using the router's "reserve an address" feature if it has it).

Forward the Remote Desktop port(s) to that static IP.

Unless you have a static public IP sign up for a service such as DynDNS, so that the others can access you by name.

You could try setting up a DHCP reservation for your home machine's IP in your routers network settings page. That way it will get the same IP assigned like it was static but the rest of your home network can still use DHCP.

The problem I am having is that I cannot connect to a remote computer (windows Server) with Remote Desktop.
I know that everything is configured correctly in Remote Desktop. In fact, I was able to connect to the server using my Wife's Laptop after I moved the .rdp file from my computer to hers.

Both computers have Norton 360 (the one that comes free with Comcast) and both computers use Windows 7 x64

The option would be to somehow get them to log on to individual workstations remotely, but that may be too complicated / incompatible.

Yes, it can be done. You will need to install the Terminal Services component.

We have just acquired a Quad-core Xeon, 4GB RAM dedicated server running Windows Server 2003 R2 SP2 32bit. We are using the server to run game and VoIP servers mainly in consoles. This requires that a user be logged in to launch the servers. We access the server via remote desktop.

I have set the server to automatically login on boot using the registry method so that if the server crashes when I am not around the server can restart itself and re-run all the software (using the start menu "Startup" folder).

The problem is that when I login via Remote Desktop the OS creates a NEW SESSION under the same username rather than just connect to the existing session. Yesterday we had three sessions running on the server all using the same username and so each of them was running duplicate apps. This was because the automatic login method created a session, and both myself and another admin logged into the server via remote desktop creating three sessions in parallel.

How do we force the server to accept only one session per username?

Hi all... I'm usually pretty comfortable with networking support, but recently got stuck on a project for a client of mine, and could use a little help.

First, the rather simple goal: to be able for an office employee to use MS Remote Desktop at home to access a work computer.

As I understand it, in order to use RDC from an off-site computer, one will first need to establish a VPN connection to the office network (RDC has been tested within the office environment and works fine)

The office I am supporting has an AT&T broadband connection with 8 static IP's (5 usable) running off of a Netopia 3347-02 (firmware 7.81r2). The Netopia gateway is assigned to 7x.xxx.xxx.30 and the computer I have set up as the VPN server (by doing basically this http://www.onecomputerguy.com/networking/xp_vpn_server.htm) is assigned to 7x.xxx.xxx.20.

I would like to simply VPN to the 7x.xxx.xxx.20 machine, and then RDC into that and 3-4 other machines once on VPN. I have accessed the Netopia settings and set up pinholes for port 1723 on TCP, but repeatedly get an "Error 800" when trying to establish the Windows VPN.

From a topic at another forum (http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r19949739-Help-with-3347NWG006-remote-desktopVPN-issue) I attempted to set up a pinhole for PPTP, but like the user in that topic, do not have such an option in my firmware.

A:Any way to add Remote Desktop (host) to W7 home?

Hi there
NO -- this is a BIG disappointment to zillions of people who get computers loaded with W7 Home from stores.

It's almost a universal requirement these days that people want to access HOME computers from the Internet / Work etc etc.

There are "3rd party options" like "Logmein" etc but some work places now block these sites and ports and aren't in any case a true alternative for RDP.

There were "get arounds" in Windows XP HOME (XP PRO always allowed RDP as a Server rather than a client) but they seemed to have locked down W7 a bit better now.

I'm sure allowing RDP in W7 Home wouldn't have been a big deal for MS -- it's certainly IMO needed.

For Linux VNC is a good solution -- whether you could use this on Windows as a server I don't know.

I swear I have used it at home before connecting to a buddies laptop. Is there a service I have to make sure is running on her laptop?

A:Remote Desktop @ home not working...

Does it say No Terminal "Server" Installed

or

No Terminal "Services" Installed

Hello, I need help in knowing if I can use Remote Desktop in Windows 10 Home to log into a remote computer from my PC.

I purchased a PC with Windows 10 Home not realizing that I will have to log into a PC in another location. I am told that to use Remote Desktop I would have to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro, and I would not even see Remote Desktop in Windows 10 Home. But I checked and the Remote Desktop app is there and there is a place to enter the remote computer name.

I don't want to have to upgrade to the Pro version of Windows 10 unless I have to. I will only be logging into the remote PC from my PC, not the other way around.

Thanks very much for your help.

Yes, you can use it as a client that connects to another computer, but not as the target of a connection request.

In other words, you can DTP out but not in.

Earlier today i disocvered how to set up a remote desktop. I connected my laptop to my server and an employee's computer easily/quickly with no problems.. but i can't do the same when i'm @ my home network.

Please note. that when i was able to connect i was on the work network, but i was connected wirelessly.. but it was using the same IP "family" if you will as the server and the other workstation

I am wondering if there is something i need to configure to get this fixed?

Hi,

Do anyone of you have a VNC, Remote Desktop or similar remote access setup at your home ?

Has there been any attacks?

What can be done to secure it ?

Here's a site that describes how to use VNC within a SSH encrypted tunnel.

Is there an easy way to remote access a 7 system from XP within a home network? (No 3rd party software plz)

I hear people are having problems with remote desktop away from home, but is it any different doing it between 2 pcs in the same house?

Can I prevent people outside the network from attempting remote connection?

(EDIT: nvm, I was thinking of putting the remote PC to sleep when not connected, and waking it up to save power. Looks like you can't even wake up the remote PC remotely...)

A:Remote desktop within home network?

I know you have said no 3rd party software but I've been using TeamViewer v7 for years set to accept LAN connections exclusively and have complete control over three other LAN connected computers, including XP. I can't see how TV could be improved upon for this situation.

I wish to use MS Remote desktop to control my home desktop. My home desktop is setup with a four computer LAN. The LAN is connected to the internet through a router. I wish to use my laptop, on the road, to connect to my desktop at home. I have been told i will have to use some Dynamic DNS software and servers. Is this so? If so any suggestions?

I have just found that Vista Home Basic does not include "Remote Desktop". Does anyone know of a way to add it to Basic? I do not want to use a third party system if possible. I have setup a VPN network okay, but would like to add Remote Desktop to the system.

Are there any new setting changes I need to make on my XP Pro machine, so I can access it with Remote Desktop from my Vista Home Premium machine?

I'm able to RDP into a box with Server 2003, but I cannont access my local XP Pro machine with my new Home Premium laptop.

Thanks

A:Home Premium Remote Desktop to XP

Also, I can access shared folders on the computer running XP from my Vista laptop... in case that matters.

I also downloaded and used TeamViewer, and although it worked I was only able to take control of the XP machine if I'd already logged in, which isn't what I need.

Thanks in advance.

How's everyone doing?

My operating system is xp home edition and I unwittingly deleted my remote desktop program. It was only used to access a computer that ran on xp pro, so there wasn't a problem using it, and I don't need anything else fancy, just my old RtD.

Unfortunately, I don't know how exactly to reinstall it. Any help would be appreciated!
