Preferred Solution: Can't access Remote Desktop with Server 2003

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.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

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.

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?

Thanks.

I am having a very frustrating problem with unauthorized and silent/secret access of my computer. No matter what operating system I install, I am always setup as a client, and someone immediately gains access and control over my entire system. I become unable and authorized to make changes that will prevent or stop this access. I have tried making a windows 7 lite version myself, but either I do not eliminate the correct services or features that I need to, or I eliminate too much and the system does not work correctly or install at all. I do not know anything about group policy, or the snap ins, or the management console, where I know is the solution.

Hello,

I am trying to configure Remote Desktop Access to work over the internet.
Remote Desktop Access works on my local network.

Both of my computers are on Windows 7 Professionnal. My router is a Belkin F9K1002.

I followed the official widows tutorial. I forwarded the necessary port on my router (I switched from port 3389 to 50000, in case 3389 was blocked by my isp).


Every time I try to connect I get

"Remote Desktop can't connect to the remote computer for one of these reasons:
1)Remote access to the server is not enabled
2)The remote computer is turned off
1)The remote computer is not available on the network
Make sure the remote computer is turned on and connected to the network, and that remote access is enabled."

Any ideas as to where the problem could be coming from?

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 guys.

I have a file server (Windows XP Pro) that I’ve 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.

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.

will give you some ideas.

I will attempt to be as clear and concise as possible. The situation is that a company is being purchased by another company. Company A is being asked for information by company. Company B wants all of the information required to remotely access company A's servers as soon as the transaction is completed. The problem is company A no longer has IT support or even anyone onsite who is capable of providing this information. Company B has specifically requested a domain password. I have been given this responsibility because I am the closest thing they have to support. I have established remote access between personal computers in the past. But never a company server. How can I direct those onsite through the process of accessing the required information from their servers and then possibly setting up a vpn or remote test to make sure it works? Is a domain password all that company B will require to remotely access servers and network of company A?

Sorry if this topic is in the wrong section. Not sure where it goes.

I would like to setup my server to allow remote access from home. It's on an office network which is separated from the WAN by a router. So long as I'm on this network, I can access the server from any computer connected to it. I enter the https URL of my server through IE and it brings me to the helm interface (the one that comes with Windows Server 2003). I can click on Maintenance and then on Remote Desktop, and it opens a new window with the server's desktop displayed.

If I'm somewhere other than the office network, I can't access it. IE gives me a "can't find webpage" message (or something along those lines). How do I setup my server to access it from outside the office network. I'd prefer to have a similar graphical interface as Remote Desktop.
 

A:Solved: getting remote access to my server

You should be able to access it from anywhere using the MS remote desktop client that ships with xp. The catch is that you have to set your router up to forward all remote desktop requests (port 3389) to your server's ip. From the outside, put IP that your ISP assigns to your router in the remote desktop client and it should open up a login screen. The other option would be to set up an IPSEC connect on your router (if it will let you). Then you connect to your router with IPSEC VPN and it's like your on your network... where ever you are.

Hello,
I've just started with a small company who already have AD and a file server, exchange, etc. They currently use webdav or RDS to remotely access files on the server and everyone complains about having to imput their username and password to open a file and how slow it is. I'm trying to find the best solution to give them access to the files without using the cloud. The main office, where I am has AD. 2 Remote offices have no infrastructure, but using laptops provided by us with domain cached credentials. Then there are 2 people in another country who work from home. I thought VPN either client based for everyone or static between the offices with each office having a DC and syncing files a few times a day. I'm just not sure that is the right choice for such a small company. Circa 30 people. 12 in main office, 5 in the other two offices. Also good to mention, the two other offices do not have a reliable fast internet connection. Please, what solutions do I have without using the Cloud?

Operating system: Windows XP Home

Thurs. nite, something happened to my computer, where files in \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM were corrupt or missing. This has happened before, so I threw in my Windows disk and "repaired" it.

I immediately ran the Norton Antivirus (which had updated that morning). HijackThis (nothing unusual), Adaware6 and Spybot.

I have not had a problem doing this before. However this time, I cannot get online. The two error messages I've received are:

Remote Access Server Error. A device attached to the system is not functioning.

OR

Remote Access Server Error. The request is not supported.

I uninstalled Compuserve, then reinstalled, but still get the same error messages.

Also, about 14 hrs. after the computer bombed, Nortons found a "virus":

Virus name: Suspicious Script
Feature: Script Blocking
Action Taken: Blocked
Suspicious action: File System Object: GetSpecialFolder
I called my internet server (Compuserve) who told me that I needed to uninstall, then reinstall DUN.

Please help. I'm at a friend's house, as I can't get online, so my responses might take time.....

Thanks,
Wendy

Please help!!

I'm going to be adding a server to my office (Windows-based?), and plan on using remote desktop to log in to it from a remote location. I've not done this before, but can I have several people log on to the server, and run individual "virtual systems" simultaneously? The option would be to somehow get them to log on to individual workstations remotely, but that may be too complicated / incompatible. If multiple people can log on simultaneously to the server and run it as if they're sitting in front of the computer, that'll work just fine.

thanks for any help!
 

A:Remote Desktop to Server - multi users?

Yes, it can be done. You will need to install the Terminal Services component. And since it appears you will be doing this in "application mode" (versus "administration mode") you will also need to install Terminal Server Licensing, and purchase TS Licenses, which are separate from the regular CAL's.

Hi!

I manage a Win2003 server wich is an Active Directory and Domain Controller, and at the moment it has a PPTP VPN Server, SQL Server 2000, Project Server, IIS, It's kind of a testing server.

I've been maneging this server for sometime with remote desktop, 'til it was attacked, then I began updateing Windows with Windows Update (it seems that nobody before made updates to this server).

Now I can't get remote desktop without it freezen the server to death after sometime connected. I installed VNC as an alternative for Remote Desktop but I don't like it as much. I've tryed to connect from differents sources, Windows 98, 2000, XP SP1 and SP2, Linux, always getting the same result at very random times doing very random things.

Cleaning the server I found Slave.exe wich is reported to be a Remote Manager that is very use as a Trojan, so I get it off but it didn't resolved the problem.

It freezes so bad that I don't get any logs about it

If any of you have a posible solution or questions that I could answer for you to help me, please post

I'm really lost here

Thanks

On my school network, the Windows XP Remote Desktop Client is available but all internet connections must go through the network proxy server (which only allows port 80). The problem is not the port 80 restriction (the pc that I want to connect to is running remote desktop on port 80) but getting the client to use the proxy. Is there anything I can do that will allow me to use to proxy (i have access to the registry if that helps)?

Thanks

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 are on the same network (Comcast Business, D-link router, only difference is that the PC is plugged in and the laptop uses WiFi).
Both computers have Norton 360 (the one that comes free with Comcast) and both computers use Windows 7 x64

Clearly, there is something running on my computer that prevents me from connecting using Remote Desktop. I have tried going after the usual suspects, like skype, Windows 7 firewall, etc. Nothing so far has allowed RDP to connect to the server. Meanwhile, from my wife's laptop it's easy as pie.

It's getting pretty frustrating and I was wondering if anyone has any good suggestions in this regard or something I could use to test the connection.

Thank you.

A:Remote Desktop cannot connect from my PC to server but my laptop can

Hi from Sevenforums,

Are they both in the same subnet i.e 192.168.1.0/24 yours maybe different.

If in the same subnet can you ping the Laptop's IP address?

Example: Open a cmd prompt ping 192.168.1.2
