Need to restart remote machine, TeamViewer down, only on a VPN now

Q: Need to restart remote machine, TeamViewer down, only on a VPN now

About a week ago I went on a trip out of town and left a box running a game server through Hamachi at home. I have done this countless times and never had a problem. TeamViewer is loaded on the box and has always connected and ran just fine remotely. However, on this specific trip, TeamViewer simply gives up on trying to connect. The iPhone version brings up an error stating 'Protocol negotiation failed.' The game server application no longer responds either. Also, both the remote and the local machine I am on right now are connected through Hamachi on a VPN. The interesting thing is the remote computer responds to ping, allows me to bring up shared folders in Explorer, and is listed as running in the Hamachi client. What it does not allow me to do is control it remotely in any way. This system needs a restart badly and I have run out of ideas on how to remotely access it. Seeing that I am a couple of hundred miles away, I cannot drive over and restart it in person so easy. Here are some further details:

Remote System:
OS: Windows XP Pro SP3
TeamViewer: Logged in and setup for unattended access - Shows up on my list with a yellow dot.
Hamachi: Connected with direct tunnel
Firewall: Comodo Firewall (older version) - Every program I've mentioned has been allowed through with no issue.

Local System:
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1
TeamViewer: Logged in and setup for unattended access
Hamachi: Connected with direct tunnel
Firewall: Windows Firewall
Things I have tried which have failed:

Connecting remotely with TeamViewer from my Computers & Contacts list - As stated above, this just silently fails. The iPhone version of TeamViewer fails to connect to the same remote system with an error message of 'Protocol negotiation failed.'

Using the Hamachi IP assigned to the remote system in Remote Desktop - Standard failure to connect message. Same for the remote computer's network name. When I am at home I use Remote Desktop on the LAN to monitor the system as it is headless. Remote Desktop is setup and configured on both of my systems.

Using the Command Prompt as administrator (via shift+right click on shortcut) and issuing a shutdown command (shutdown -r -m \\COMPUTERNAME -t 10 -f) - This delays for a moment, but only brings up a message saying 'Access Denied. (5).' The Windows login credentials are the same on both the local and remote computers.

Entering the command ' \\COMPUTERNAME ' to attempt a login so a shutdown command could be initiated without being denied access - I am not sure how this command would work, but an article elsewhere stated that by simply typing '\\' followed by the target computer's network name in the Command Prompt would present a login username and password prompt. I only received the message: 'The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.' I tried both the remote computer's network name and Hamachi IP address.

Short of having a friend drive over and break into my home, I don't know what else to do. Does anyone here have any ideas?

Preferred Solution: Need to restart remote machine, TeamViewer down, only on a VPN now

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.)

A: Need to restart remote machine, TeamViewer down, only on a VPN now

Well I drove back home earlier than expected and fixed the remote computer in person. Turns out the system had run out of memory after being on so long and TeamViewer simply had no resources to initiate, or everything was just timing out from the system taking so long with any request. I'll be picking up more RAM after the 4th. I suppose no one had any answers on how else I could restart the system remotely, but I'll be marking this thread as solved.

I asked a question in another thread wanting to know if there were any good free alternatives to programs PCAnywhere or GoToMyPC. Boy did I ever get more than I expected in TeamViewer that EAFiedler suggested.

Now I have a technical question about how TeamViewer works. It connects to remote systems across the internet not by an IP number that I enter but rather by an arbitrary nine-digit number assigned to the system when the program is set up. It connects so quickly that I know it cannot be scanning every IP address on the 'net looking for a TeamViewer connection at every one of them. So, I have deduced that there must be a server out there somewhere that stores TeamViewer information.

Does anyone know enough about this to confirm this and/or explain it to me somewhat?

Next question: What about security? Are there any security issues I should be concerned about, other than the obvious, of course?

Hi all,

I am using TeamViewer to remotely control a netbook laptop that has a low resolution display (1024x600). This is kind of problematic for a lot of websites and software these days.

Since the display is closed, there's no reason why the resolution should max out at the native resolution of the PC.

Are there any workarounds for making the PC have a "virtual display" or does TeamViewer have a way to shut off the internal display, treat remote as a monitor, and revert when disconnected?

Open to alternatives besides TeamViewer, but they need to be free.

Netbook is running Windows 7 Home Premium, so I don't think Remote Desktop Connection is an option.

Thanks!

Hello, I'm an aspiring geek / tech and have recently been working with TeamViewer 7. There are two other sites with which I establish connections, so that I may run basic PC maintenance (i.e virus scanning, registry cleaning, etc.).
Recently though, I've been having trouble connecting to one of the sites. The computer at the site can connect to each other perfectly fine (all three computers run TeamViewer); however, I cannot "see" the remote site's screen. I can establish a connection with the remote computer perfectly fine, but I can't actually view it's screen. After too much idle time, the connection terminates.

Hello everyone. Nube to the forum here.

I have a couple of questions. One regarding Win7 Remote Desktop vs TeamViewer. The other regarding installing Win7 Home Premium on a second computer using the same Win 7 CD I used on my primary computer.
Heres the deal.
I own a small home recording studio, where my console houses two computers with three monitors. My main computer is my Digital Audio Workstation(DAW) and as I am a professional Detailer, it also is my 3D graphics workstation. The other computer is for Midi, Internet, HTPC, and various other things, although both computers are networked through a router and can access the Internet. However, for security reasons, I don't use the DAW computer on the net except to download various upgrades/drivers etc.

Because of ergonomics at the console, I would like to access both computers with only one keyboard/mouse. While doing research on Win7 Remote Desktop, I discovered that Win7 Home Premium will only allow this computer to be a Client, but not access a HOST, while Pro/Ultimate will allow a computer to be a host, but will not allow you to access a CLIENT, which is ODD, as if you pay premium price for Pro/Ultimate, it would seem you would want to use it to access a Client computer, not the other way around. Currently, my secondary computer runs XP, and since Home Premium will not allow my primary computer(client) via Remote Desktop to access my secondary computer because it isn't a HOST, I'm looking for an alterna...

I have this system with 8gb ram and a 40gb hdd, it works fine locally but when i login remotely it sometimes lags. All other pcs i use TV have no issues, its only this particular unit, i am using a direct gigabit connection no wifi.

I assume the cpu is not powerful enough for remote, but wanted to confirm

A:Mini PC Issues with remote login ie; teamviewer

Yes anytime you log in remote with programs like Teamviewer. There will be lag. Make sure that TV is set to remove background, and set for auto for Quality and to Optimize connection quality. Even across a LAN. There can be some lag when doing certain things. But not that bad. Unless it is something really memory intensive, say like a game.

As for through the Internet. It all depends on connection speed between computers.

Just an fyi. I would put in a larger hard drive on the asus. 40gb is cutting it. You can get a Crucial M500 120gb or even 240gb SSD pretty cheap these days.

Hi guys,

my boss had the idea to work one day at home for special employees at our office.

I have good experiences with the program teamviewer and we would consider buying it since it's only freeware for private use.

In the office we are connected to a server pc and with some help (I'm a beginner in networking, my skills are more related to setting up hardware components) I would be able to establish a remote desktop connection offered by XP itself.

But is it worth it?

I heard that the connection isn't encrypted.

So better using teamviewer or something else?

I tried the F-Secure, BitDefender & A-Squared Online Scanners & subsequently the connection to IE was cut.

I will try SafeMode with Networking next time when another member is over & hopefully I can update the installed scanners & use them in safe mode. If this isn't successful would it be possible to use a VPN connection (again TeamViewer) to scan their computer files using the scanner programs on my computer, would this risk speading the virus to me (I have the same Eset Smart Security as part of a 3 licence pack)?

I have one very powerful PC that I would like to use as a VM server, and then I have a netbook and a HP pavilion dv2000 laptop that I would like access the VMs. My ideal setup would be to have my main machine running Windows 7 and have two virtual machines running Windows 7 that would be accessed and used by the netbook and notebook across the network, this would allow the two mobile PCs to make use of the main PC's sizable resources while still being three different machines that can be used by three different people. The reason I want to do this is that I have a lot of people who want to use the computer, but only one that runs Windows, has Office, and is very powerful. Any help on this topic would be appreciated.

A:Remote Virtual Machine

Problem: The VMs would not have office unless you could install it in each VM and that means a separate product key.

Also, each instance of Win 7 would need it's own product key since you can't run the same one in a virtual machine.

Other than that it sounds doable running Win 7 guests under Oracle VirtualBox. Just set the networks up as Bridged so they get their IP address from the same router, then setup port forwarding to a VNC server running in each VM. TightVNC is a good choice.

I don't think you will be very happy with the performance though. Even with Gigabit network adapters it will be slow.

It would be fun to try though.

After setting it up, I can access the machine using Remote Desktop Connection from within the local LAN network using the computer name. However, I cannot access it using my external IP address which should be the router which should forward it to my personal computer. The error I get says "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, 3) The remote computer is not available on the network."

Here is everything I've done so far:

Hi and Welcome to SevenForums.

I understand i am not answering your question directly with this reply but have you considered using TeamViewer to do this task?
Download Here - TeamViewer - Free Remote Control, Remote Access & Online Meetings

It is free for personal use and i've never come across an issue using this method of a remote connection from outside my home in all the years i have used it (within my home i use remote desktop).

Is there a reason for needing Remote Desktop?

Regards,
Jamie

I am trying to RD into a machine that I can ping. RD fails with the generic "this computer can't connect to the remote computer" message. I checked and the remote machine does have the "allow other to connect to this machine via RD" checkbox checked. Furthermore I was able to RD to it about a month ago. Not sure what has changed since then. Where should I look? Thanks.

I am here at the office attempting to use remote desktop to connect into my Vista Ultimate SP1 laptop.

I get connected and logon, get the desktop and everything drawn on screen, the it totally freezes.

After a minute or so I get the dialog box showing that I have been disconnected and it will attempt to reconnect.

Attempting to logon at the console of that laptop now, I put in my password, it says Welcome, then a message comes up stating , "This network connection does not exist."

If I click on OK and attempt to logon again, it gives me the same message.

If I wait about 5 minutes, I am able to logon again.

In the event log I am seeing from source TermDD an event 56 stating, "The Terminal Server security layer detected an error in the protocol stream and has disconnected the client."

Is this because I am using SP2 on the XP machine instead of SP3 ?

I've seen similar issues but only on occasion when connecting from the same XP box to my home desktop running Ultimate SP1. Every attempt I may to get into this laptop results in the same thing.

Any thoughts on this? I'd appreciate any input!

Thanks!

Problem: As a member of the security team, I am not a member of the IT team. Therefore do not have access to physical lists of a given machine.

The easy solutions are-1. Ask IT for the list of machine names, 2. Ask someone physically at the location to look for the users cubical and tell me the machine name (located on the ID tag)

Issue: Examine the contents of a workstation somewhere on our intranet.
Known Data: Username, server, server profile, physical address (big deal), personal storage on the LAN. Every workstation on the intranet has a unique identifier assigned by IT and placed on label on the physical case. Connecting remotely is permissible for my position.

Question. Is there a way to look on the local server (remotely) and determine the IP or machine name from a profile stored on the server or any other identifying characteristics to help me map to this workstation.

The problem with my "easy solutions" are that IT is NOT security, asking anyone opens the door to multiple questions that cannot be answered during an active investigation, and the separation of management (which I am classified as) and the workers prohibits them from assisting. Last resort, if there is no way to virtually accomplish this, is to contact the manager of the office to physically look at the workstation.

Thanks for your help,
MM

Hello,



I have run into an issue where psexec is not working on one of my remote clients. However, it is working on other remote clients. When I execute the psexec \\computername it returns with the error (Error communicating with PsExec service on the remote computer:
no process is on the other end of the pipe). I then am able to perform a pslist on the remote computer and I do see the PSEXESVC process, then I can run a pskill and end that process which I have seen by other people that this works and then they can execute
a psexec with no issue, this does not work for me still. I have also tried deleting the service on the remote computer using sc.exe \\computername delete PSEXESVC which completes successfully. I then run a psexec again and the service creates and starts but
the same error occurred. I can also confirm that the PSEXESVC application is running in the %WINDIR% directory on the remote machine. Has anyone else experienced this issue has is there a resolution to this issue. 



Thank you,

Tobias

As someone who is working towards a bachelors degree in computer networking, I have a half decent understanding (or so I thought) of how the internet works. But today... today my mind was blown. I knowingly downloaded something for a game that was a bit sketchy, fully aware that there was a 90% chance a keylogger came packaged with it, didn't concern me that much. I tend to be a bit reckless with my machine because just about every virus I've ever come across I can take care of with relative ease (and heck virus removal offers a weird thrill). Throw in a Hiren's boot CD, run trusty old MBAM, TDSS killer etc. and smash malware with an iron fist. Not to mention I tend to re install my OS every two months because I make such a mess of my file system I figure its best I start anew, and continue to dump everything to desktop.
 
So here's the story of what happened today, I'm playing my game and having a blast when all of a sudden it closes. I figure "Hey, the game just crashed that's pretty lame". Upon attempt to run the game again and log in I was confronted with a "Password is incorrect" message, at this point I knew what was going on, got keylogged and someone was in the process of trying to cause havoc with the account. I giggled a bit, then proceeded to go to the website and push a password reset request through my email, since the email had a different password I wasn't too concerned. Upon logging into my email to confirm the password reset... Read more

Haha you sound like me, but I haven't seen active on-screen activity for for almost 2 months now!
So I really shouldn't give you advice haha!

Hi,

I am the IT manager here, one of our XP Professional machine has issue.

When i start the machine, it has the XP loading screen (with the window XP logo), which is normal.
Then after that, it will restart the machine by itself, so it will keep looping to restart, i never can get into the desktop. why?

I tried to use my XP CD to do a repair or chkdisk, it tried to load all the system files, then i said it failed because some .sys corrupted.

I am thinking to do chkdisk, any boot CD chkdisk utility? or give me any suggestion for this issue!

Please give me some advise,
Tommy

Can you boot into safe mode?Try the last known good configuration option?http://www.computerhope.com/issues/chsafe.htm#02It helps if you provide...exact error messages. I'm sure that MS has millions by now and it's impractical to guess what the system is trying to tell you.Do you have MS XP CDs...or recovery/restore disks provided by the system manufacturers?Louis

I wonder if anyone else has tried rebooting a Windows 8 machine remotely yet. This is probably not a common occurrence yet, though it someday may be, and it turned out to be quite a debacle. Obviously we all know that in order to reboot a machine, we have to access the charms bar, go to settings and then power, then restart. This turned out to be almost impossible for me to accomplish remotely using ultravnc, as I could only see a small portion of the screen, and the charms kept vanishing from the screen while I was trying to get to settings. Is there another simple way to restart the machine that I am missing, that does not rely on mouse gestures, or 3rd party applications?

I'm trying to setup TLS e-mail on remote machine, but it doesn't work.
Trying to send e-mail on my local machine (Windows 7 x64 locale ru-ru) and it works:

The correct way to uninstall ComboFix, all of its related folders, files and logs is to make sure it is still on the Desktop (<-Important!!!) and follow these instructions.When finished you will see a dialog box stating that "ComboFix has been uninstalled".After that, you can remove the ComboFix.exe program from your Desktop by right-clicking on it and choosing delete.If you encounter any problems using the switch from the Run dialog box or Search field, just rename ComboFix.exe to Uninstall.exe, then double-click on it to remove.If ComboFix is no longer on your Desktop, re-download it from here, save to the Desktop and follow the instructions above to properly uninstall it from your computer.Another option if the above is unsuccessful is to download DelFix by Xplode and save to your Desktop.Double-click on delfix.exe to run the tool.Vista/Windows 7/8 users right-click and select Run As Administrator.Put a check mark next to these items:- Activate UAC- Remove disinfection tools- Create registry backup- Purge System Restore- Reset system settingsClick the "Run" button.When the tool has finished, it will create and open a log report (DelFix.txt)A copy of that report will be saved to the following location C:\DelFix.txt.-- Doing this will remove many specialized tools downloaded and used for malware removal. Any leftover logs, files, folders or tools remaining on your Desktop which were not removed can be deleted manually (right-click on it and choose delete).

Hello.

My goal is to restore a remote desktop to the local console so that the user doesn't have to re-enter their password and log back in. While connected remotely to a Windows 7 machine via RDP, I run the following command in a batch file:
tscon %sessionname% /dest:console

This works fine if I connect via RDP with an account in the Administrators group. The problem is when I RDP to the remote machine with an account that's not in the Administrators group, I get the following error:

Could not connect sessionID 1 to sessionname console, Error code 5
Error [5]:Access is denied.

The batch file needs to be run as an Administrator for it to work. I don't have the Administrator account password, but I do have credentials for an account that is in the Administrators group on the machine. I've tried a few different things to run the batch file as an Administrator, but I can't get it to work right.

So my question is how can I get the tscon.exe command to work on this remote machine as a non-Admin?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
