Screen share/remote login program

Q: Screen share/remote login program

My business had been using TeamViewer for awhile but my boss isn't happy with it, so I was tasked with finding a new screen share program. After a lot of research I chose Glance, which has worked very well for us.
 
Two weeks ago, however, it was brought to my attention that we now need a program that can provide remote login in addition to screen share. I can't find a lot of information about this, and most sources point back to TeamViewer. Are there any alternative programs to help me out?

Preferred Solution: Screen share/remote login program

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.)

Hi,

Is there an inbuilt Windows 7 program available that will allow a screen share with a remote PC but can be configured so that the remote PC cannot have control of the host PC?

A:Screen Share Without Allowing Remote Control ?

I don't believe that you can configure Remote Desktop to only share a your screen.

There is a quite simple way to accomplish this though. You should use one of the programs that people use to broadcast live streams of gaming and/or tutorials. XFire includes the ability to send out a live stream of your desktop.

Here's a tutorial on using XFire to broadcast a live stream:

At work I sometimes remote login into my home computer as I like to visit cnn.com or check my lottery numbers. They block these sites at work, this is why I remote login to my home PC.

What is driving me crazy is that once I minimize the remote login screen on my work computer. It will often pop back onto the screen once every 20 minutes if I have not used the remote login. Is there a way to fix this? How do fix it so that my remote login window stays minimized, until I restore it?

Hi,
I connect to my work computer through a VPN and remote desktop, and often times remote desktop (I use NLA) works once, but after the first disconnect I can't login remotely. Power settings on the computer are set so it never goes asleep and never turns off the display.

In addition, when this happens, I find the computer has a black screen either before or after login when I go into my office to login directly to the computer.

This problem seems to occur on several computers, including on Win 7 Pro x32 and x64.

I have two computers running Windows XP. Let's call them Acquiring and Processing.

Processing has SP3. Acquiring has SP2 and is behind a hardware firewall/router. (cannot upgrade to SP3 due to some software it has to run that will crap out if the computer is upgraded, hence the firewall.)

I configured the firewall/router to give Acquiring a specific address, and to open the port for remote desktop, and to forward anything coming in on that port to the Acquiring computer, which is the only device on that router in any case.

When I go to the Processing computer and try to Remote Desktop to the Acquiring computer, the login window comes up without a hitch. Once I type in the username and password and try to login, however, the desktop of the remote computer won't load. I get the little bar at the top of the screen with the computer name and the option to minimize or close, I can see and move the mouse, but the rest of the screen is completely black. Eventually I just end up closing the remote session (without logging off though, since I am not given that option)

Over on the Acquiring computer, the screen hasn't been locked as per usual. I can still see the desktop, but the computer is frozen. I have no mouse, and I can't even get the keyboard to toggle the lights for numlock and capslock. I then have to do a hard reboot of the Acquiring computer to get it un-frozen.

Hello friends, I recently got the Gnome desktop environment on the Ubuntu Software Center, and I used the gdm and startx command as said by another forum site. Nothing wrong, they said to logout, tried to login again, goes to a black screen and sends me back to the Ubuntu login screen. Tried again, same result, panicked. Looked up video tutorial on how to fix it, they said to access the control panel via ctrl-alt-f1 or f2, went to a black screen, no text at all, computer runs fine, no crashing.

In my organization we decided to implement EFS for mobile users: I used a "Server Windows 2012 R2" on which I defined a share and mobile laptops in Windows 7.

Now we want to use this Server's Folder as a repository for encryped user file, so I started testing and I found the following issues:I'm able to copy from the laptop to the share (I'm also able to encrypy directly from the share), but, even if the files
are encypted correctly, the Data Recovery Agents is stripped off: The result on the network Share is that the file is encryped correctly, but there is no Data Recovery Agent.I feel I have not understood how remote encryption works, but, from licterature:In
this configuration (with Windows 2012 and Windows 7) the certificates and keyes are stored on the client, the server no longer impersonate the user.I suspect there is some issue with the EFS configuration on the Server, can onyone please tell me how should
I configure it ? where can I find furthe documentation ?
The next step will be "offline files", Could anyone tell me in advance if this configuration is supported ?

Despite all of those, I'm receiving three to five windows that come up immediately after Windows XP login. The message is the same for all the different programs: (Program) has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience. This morning I received that message for the following programs: DSLog (after I ran HJT), mm_tray (I get this one almost every morning), TouchPad Driver Helper Application, and nwiz.exe.

Hey guys.

I'm stuck: I'm running a straight through workgroup network between 2 Win XP pro computers, both with multiple users.

I want to set various permissions based on the log in of the other (remote) computer, i.e. Jill logged in on PALE can access a certain folder on WATER whilst Jack logged in on PALE can't.

However, when setting user permissions or security, whilst adding a new user on, say, WATER, the location is set to WATER and no other options are available (logic dictates that i should be able to select the workgroup, RHYME, as the location?) and when i try and add a remote permission like PALE\Jill, it doesn't like it.

What am I doing stupid?

Cheers,

Drew
 

A:Setting Win XP remote share permissions

You have to add the same username on both workgroup PC's. Using your example create user account Jill on WATER and PALE but assigne the permissions on WATER to WATER\Jill and Pale\Jill will be able to get into those shared folders.

Well, I am totally baffled (and it takes a lot to baffle me!). I want to share the My Documents folder from an XP machine with ONLY one user (the administrator) on a networked Win 7 machine. I have turned off simple sharing on the XP machine. I hate XP!! So complicated to do anything. Anyway, under security, I have tried share this folder, and not to share folder. I have gone into Advanced and messed around with permissions, taking out Everyone, using Admin only, using Network. At one point I ended up not being able to access My Documents on the local computer and had to jump through many hoops to change ownership and disable read only so that the user could use her own files!

The problem is, under Advanced in the permissions area, I cannot see the users on the remote pc to choose which one should be allowed access. I have read countless help suggestions, but none of them tell me how to actually find a particular user on the Win 7 pc and give ONLY that user permission to read (not to change) the files in My Documents on the XP pc. Can anyone give me a step by step process to do this? I work on computers all the time (I am a computer consultant) so it is embarrassing that I cannot set up this seemingly simple situation. Ugh!
 

A:Set permission for just one remote user to share a folder

1. Find out the name of the account on the remote machine (you may have to ask the owner of it).
2. Add a new account on the XP with the same name as on the Windows 7.
3. Give the desired permissions to that newly created account.

EDIT: It's simplest if you use the same password on both machines. Else you'll need to tell the Windows 7 account owner the XP's password.

If you don't want others to access your files

You can prevent other users from accessing your folders and the files they contain. When your computer is connected to a domain, this is called setting permissions for your file or folder. When your computer is connected to a workgroup, this is called making your folders private.

I would be grateful if anyone can help me with this wee problem.

I have a network in the house with a mix of windows operating systems.

My server is just windows XP SP3 sharing folders across the network by user name login. They are all on a workgroup not domain and the Windows 7 PC's do not have homegroup enabled and all the settings are enabled in the sharing centre options, ie network discovery etc.

Wireless
Laptop 1 running Windows 7, Laptop 2 running Windows XP SP3, when accessing the shared folders on the server will bring up a login screen so you can input your user name and password. You then can access your allocated shared folders.

Wired
All wired PC's when accessing the shared folders on the server will bring up a login screen so you can input your user name and password. You then can access your allocated shared folders. Mainly Windows 7 now. Windows XP was previously installed and worked ok also.
The problem is that on a new install of Windows 7 on a laptop when you click the Server icon in windows explorer, the server automatically shows all of the available folders and no-login screen. This means that you cant login to view your allocated folders on the server. You can access the folders that are shared to everyone. It seems its quite common when I googled it but no answers.

When you look at the shares what are the "Everyone" or "users" permissions? (On your server).

When you create shares everyone by default gets read access to the shares. So they can see and connect to the shares.

If the objects that are being shared with everyone permissions not only will people see the share they will see objects that are stored within that share.

By default the get read access. If you can create and delete objects within the share then you will have at least create/modify permissions, or possibly full control.

By default XP has the "Use sharing wizard" ticked in the folder options, which is counter-intuitive. Might be worth unticking this. You will gain a better understanding of security in my opinion.

If you have defined a number of users on the XP machine, then you may want to set up permissions for each use for each share and remove the everyone permissions.

I have a Samba server and 2 WIN XP clients. There are 2 home folders; Folder A is my normal home folder with the same login as the client login. Folder B has a different username and password. Connecting to the server from Client 1 is normal - if I connect to Folder A it allows me in and if I connect to Folder B it asks for the login password. If I supply it I get read and write privileges.

Connecting from Client 2 is somewhat different. Connecting to Folder A is as above but when I connect to Folder B it does not ask for the password but lets me in with read only privileges.

I log into both clients with the same username and password.

I have tried deleting all the shares and restarting Client 2 but this has no effect.

Are these computers on a domain or a workgroup? are they connected to the same network?

are any shares on them working? what happens if you try and share a folder? are you sharing folders at a local level with local users or domain users or groups?

as for remote desktop - have you checked ICF and made sure that the remote desktop service is not being blocked? check the user credentials you are using to make sure they still have the connect remotely user rights. Make sure remote desktop is still turned on.

Normally computer 01 able to browse computer 02 and 03; but for the past day I unable to access share folder that computer 02 and 03 created.

from computer 01, I can:
- Ping 02 and 03
- access internet

from computer 02, I can:
- Remote desktop computer 01

but from 01, I can't:
- access share folder of 02 and 03, error: "Windows cannot find "\\comp02". Check the spelling and try again, or try searching for the item by clicking the Start button and clicking Search."
- see 02 and 03 from "My network places > Entire Network > Microsoft Windows Network > Workgroup"

This is what I've checked:
- all computers under same workgroup (which is "Workgroup")
- under same subnet (which is 255.255.255.0)
- Disable all firewall from all computers
- checked that "File and Printer sharing for Microsoft Network" enabled
- even tried to 'repair' the windows XP by putting in the original CD and "reinstall" the XP

My guess:
- could this something to do with particular service that is not running? what would that be?

Please find attached netstat -a result from computer 01

Thank you so much!

A:[SOLVED] Able to Remote Desktop, ping but not reaching share drive

Ah... problem solved...
I tried to "Repair the network connections" but failed at:
- clearing the arp cache
- clearing netbt

So I follow these instructions:
- Clear ARP Cache ==> http://www.manast.com/2007/03/23/rec...ear-arp-cache/
- Clear NETBT ==> http://support.microsoft.com/default...&Product=winxp

Yay!

On a workgroup home network, can a win 7 or win 8.1 computer be shared if it does not require a password to log in? If so, how can another PC connect to it with Explorer?

A:Is a password login necessary to share files within a workgroup?

If they don't have the same userid then yes, I believe you need passwords.

You can try defining everyone then give it whatever access you want.

We have a Dell Lattitude E5540 running Windows 8.1 Professional connected to an Active Directory domain. The laptop has the latest drivers and BIOS, including the driver for its Dell Wireless 1506 802.11b/g/n (2.4Ghz) adapter.

Hello - I know there have been a number of posts on this subject but I have been unable to find a solution. I have 2 Win7 machines, both running SP1.

My HP Pavilion is running 64-bit and my Dell Latiude E6400 is running 32-bit. I can successfully RDP from my Dell and even my Apple iPad (via an RDP client) into my HP Pavilion. However, the problem is that when I try to RDP from my Pavilion into my Dell I get connected but all I see is a BLACK from the Dell machine. The only thing i can see is the Status bar at teh top telling me that i am connected. A few moments later I get a popup message telling me that the machines have failed to communicate.

I have confirmed that RDP settings are identical on the Pavilion and Dell. I have even downgraded the Dell NVIDIA graphics driver to an older version based on the recommended version on the Dell support web site.

At this point I am at a complete loss on what to try next. I find it very strange.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!!!

Thank you.

Hello,

Temp disable your anti-virus and firewall to determin if this is blocking the ports.

Also, can you copnfirm that you have a password on the PC's user account? Windows wont let you RDP to a PC that isnt password protected.

On my Windows 8 Pro PC, I've enabled sharing and set my home network up as a private network. When it was running Win 8 Consumer Preview, I was able to login as "[email protected]". Then when I shared a folder, I was able to connect to it from my Win7 PC by entering "joeblow" as my user name and providing it with my Windows Live password. Win8 Pro doesn't appear to be working this way. I am able to see the Win8 PC from the Win7 PC, but when I open it up I see a blank window. Trying to enter a direct path, or mapping to \\Win8PC\C$ doesn't work. Homegroups aren't really an option for me since I have an XP machine and a Mac on my home network. Is a local account the only answer? Would that even work?

A:Using Windows Live login - unable to share files to Win7

Have you tried adding a check mark to the the sharing tab on C drive or which ever folder you want to share?

You can also add check marks for the security tab permission settings on the Windows 8 C drive for "Everyone" which should be there by default. This would allow Everyone on the network access to which ever folder you allowed.

Adding a local account is the safest way as it allows you to only allow a specific LAN user access.

I have windows xp home edition on both of my computers, and they do have a remote desktop program, but ive found out that windows xp pro actually has a better version of it that will actually work. I cant get the windows xp home version of it to work. Is there anyone that knows of a free remote desktop program, or if someone would be able to send the windows xp pro version of the remote desktop program.

XP Home has "Remote Assistance", while XP Pro has both "Remote Desktop", as well as "Remote assistance". You can download from Microsoft, a Remote Desktop "add on" which will enable your computer to become the "client" but not the "server".

can you provide some details about what you've done to get "remote assistance " up and running?

Hi,

I've searched the internet and I can't find a solution. I've long been using Windows 7 and never had any problems with Remote Desktop from outside my network however I don't use it frequently so it is several months since I last used it.

When I right click on Computer -> Properties and Remote Settings

The lower part of the screen where you specify your remote desktop settings is missing. The issues that I've seen regarding this have two solutions typically.

1) The TermService is not running. It is my case.
2) That the DWord value should be set to 0 in the registry for tfDenyTSConnections

I have attached a screenshot confirming all this.

Anybody any advice as to what to try next?

So, here's the situation:

I'm currently trying to help a business set up their client-management program to work in two separate locations on two different high speed connections. On a LAN, the program essentially runs in two separate instances from the same executable. I'm not able to transfer the program itself, because the license does not carry over to the second computer; so basically, I have to run it from a shortcut to the primary PC.

My question is this: does anybody have an idea to run the program (as a shortcut or some type of server) from this location to the primary location, in a similar manner as the LAN computer using the shortcut?

I suggest they buy the proper multi-user version of the application. There are a multitude of issues trying to run a program installed on one machine over the network on another machine!
