Preferred Solution: Any software recommendations for remote desktop working between win 7 & 8 ?

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 all,

So, I have scoured every resource I could find to resolve this, and am just flat out stumped....hoping someone here can shed some light on my problem. Here is my situation:

* I have a SBS 2003 R2 Standard machine running (domain controller, exchange, etc)
* I have 7 XP SP2 clients that are part of the domain
* I have an ASA 5505 firewall running, with an ADSL modem connected to that for WAN access

My problem is related to RWW. From the internet (non-lan connection), I can connect without any issues to the RWW homepage (either as a domain user or an administrator). When I click on "connect to work computer", I am presented with a list of the domain PCs. However, once I click on any of them, I receive the following "VB Script: Remote Desktop Disconnected" error window:

"The client could not establish a connection to the remote computer. The most likely causes for this error are:

1) Remote connections might not be established at the remote computer
2) The max number of connections might be exceded at the remote computer
3) A network error might have occurred while establishing the connection
4) The Remote Web Workplace designated port might be blocked by a firewall
"

Here is what I have confirmed so far:
1) I have opened ports 3389 and 4125 on the ASA
2) I CAN remote desktop directly to the SBS itself (not using RWW)
3) I CAN access OWA via the internet

Id highly recomend teamviwer.
TeamViewer Download

You download the Full version and they download the quick support version just underneath.
The quick version only allows some one with the full version(you) to access there computer (with the ID and Passwrod of course) and once it closes it leaves nothing behind except the .exe file and (i think) a log.
Neither of which will be easily available,they will have to be looked for.

hey guys,im looking for some software to remote desktop to my other pc from my laptop. im currently using logmein free, whichs works great, i like the features such as being able to change resolution to match the host pc. the only draw back is that it runs through the internet, and so its a bit slow and laggy, but also it will no doubt use up my internet allowance from my ISP.so is there any other software that works like logmein, but is designed to work over a lan (wirelessly). at work we use the xp pro remote desktop, but unfortunately i dont have xp pro on these machines.free would be an advantage too ;)cheers, deanEdit: Moved topic from XP to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

Hiya

The downloadable Remote Desktop Web Connection ActiveX control provides most of the same functionality as the full Remote Desktop Connection software; however, the Remote Desktop Web Connection is designed to deliver this functionality over the Web. The Web package Setup program installs the downloadable ActiveX control and sample Web page on a server running Internet Information Services (IIS) 4.0 or later

System Requirements
This package may be applied to the following:

All Windows 2000 platforms
Windows NTŪ Server 4.0
Windows NT Server 4.0 Enterprise Edition
Windows NT Server 4.0 Terminal Server Edition
Important: The Remote Desktop Web Connection download package must be installed on a computer running Internet Information Services (IIS) version 4.0 or later. This dependency applies to the Web server only. Users can download the control and view the Web pages from any supported Web browser (Windows 32-bit versions of Internet Explorer 5.x or higher).

I've read about Supremo but when I look for user reviews, they seem kind of skimpy. I'd like to hear your experiences with this or other remote desktop software.

I would be connecting mostly with Windows 10 and Windows 7 Pro environments, occasionally Android. I do need to be able to print remotely and transfer files. I also need good security.

Hey guys

I use Logmein, and PC Anywhere remote software for remoting my PCs between 2 homes. But I find them too slow when remoting software that has moderate graphics load.

I want to establish a connection between my 2 sites (London and Devon) that will give me the fastest remote access, and I dont care about what it cost as long as its not ridiculous!

If it helps to buy 2 routers with built in VPN capabilities I will buy them to create a VPN tunnel, if this will improve remote access speeds.

I dont mind paying for the remote software either.

So what would be the best solution - at reasonable cost?

After A little research, I have read that RDP is the quickest for when remoting graphics intensive programs. But these articles were dated a few years, is RDP still the quickest? One of my PC is Windows 7 Home, shall I upgrade it to Professional if I want it to be a RDP host? Or is their seperate RDP software available that I can install instead of forking out ?100 for Windows 7 Professional upgrade? If using RDP on Windows 7 Prof is the fastest then I will buy the upgrade.

And if creating the VPN tunnel will improve speeds further, then I pose that as another question in the Network threads

Cheers

A:What is the fastest remote desktop software for graphics work?

It seems, the graphics card of the host plays a part in speed of graphics refresh during remote sessions. Something to do with rasterizing. The pc host had on board graphics and scores just 3.4 in the Windows Experience index performance guage in Windows 7. So perhaps I need to also buy a dedicated graphics card.

My host machine has stopped responding when I try to log into it.
Win 7 Pro, 64 bit, latest service pack.
The only different thing I've done is changes the listening port to 9833, but that has been working for years
I recently added bullguard security instead of Norton but I think it was working for a few days before this issue started. I've tried turning off the firewall altogether and that hasn't made a difference.
Typically when remote desktop stops responding, I reboot the machine and everything is good, but I've done that 4 times now with shut downs, not just restarts.
I have confirmed under computer properties that Remote desktop is activated.
Please help
**********************
I've been digging further and it seems as though window firewall was back in play along with bullguard and that was blocking it.  I turned off windows firewall and turned back on bullguard and was able to log in.
sooo...
1- if I have the bullguard firewall running do I need the windows firewall?
2- If I should have the windows firewall running too, how do I change the port in windows firewall?  While remote desktop is listening fine on 9983, windows firewall is showing the original 3389 as the port.  I have to machines here that I get
into and use the ports to determine which machine I am accessing.

I can transfer files, share directories, and do everything but remote desktop. It keeps telling me the credentials don't match.

I have the same username/password on both machines, both are running Windows 7 Ultimate, both are configured to use the same homegroup and both machines are working perfectly EXCEPT for remote desktop.

When I try to add a user in the Select User dialog I can only see user-A on machine-A, and user-B on machine-B. machine-A does not see user-B and machine-B does not see user-A, so I cannot possibly add myself as a user to RDP in the MMC settings.

I have followed all other "Windows 7 Homegroup Remote Desktop not working" threads and followed all guides to correcting this problem. Nothing works, and my credentials are still rejected.

What can I do to further gather support for this cripplingly frustrating issue?

how RDP could work on any medium except a network as it requires an IP or Name to be able to communicate.

Hi there,

Can anyone give me some simply instructions on how to configure remote desktop? I've looked all over the internet and can't seem to figure it out. I want to remote control my home computer from work. Windows Ultimate 7 on both computers.

I've configured the home PC in some ways... mostly going all the things the internet tells me to do... clicking various check marks and so on. I guess to log in I need to know what the ip address is... i found ipconfig but I'm not exactly sure which of the numbers is my IP address. Also, in user name, what do I type? I have my home PC set up... I am an administrator... to log in to my home PC I use my name as the user name with a password.

I'm using it over a router. The IP address I have is for the router I guess, not specifically the computer. So somehow I need to figure out how to get into the computer and not just the router etc. Do I need to think about ports?

I am aware of options such as team viewer and log me in. I"m specifically interested in remote desktop so I can get working audio.

This should be very easy. I'm just not quite knowledgable enough.

A:help getting remote desktop working

Yes you need to know the IP address of the comptuer to pointto the computer

then you need to configure the router to port forward to a static ip to the computr to want to tap into



What i did so hat I never have to remember a number that could change at anytime... i configured my router to accept the dyndns.com soo that i have a domain resolve my ip address.

so instead of putting in changing IPs, i just put in a domain like ****.homeip.net

A:Remote desktop is not working

I assume by saying your remote desktop is not working means you cannot remotely control another PC on your network as you used to be able to do, or has this never worked ? By having systems in a workgroup and sharing files with each other is not the same as being able to take control of another system's desktop - you have to set this up and is not the default condition of windows.

- I have also set up port forwarding in my router to forward port 3389 to that local IP address. I already checked on canyouseeme.org and it says "Success: I can see your service on 222.252.233.9 on port (3389)"

However, if I enter 222.252.233.9 to remote desktop, it can't connect to the server.

Do you know how to fix this problem?

Thanks.


Hi ..
So, 222.252.233.9 is the server, and how about client IP ?
is it pingable from both side ?

I have been looking at this free remote desktop program at their web site but their instructions on how to use it are pretty weak.

Anyone that has or is using this program to take control of another persons pc for help with their system - I would sure appreciate it if you could give me some info on how to use it.

PS
I have posted this question in this forum area as I have seen postings or answers to postings with regard to this free remote control desktop software.

Not sure I can give you anymore information than what the website has to offer. If you can detail what you have tried then maybe we can decipher what you are doing wrong.

Have you tried using Zolved at all. Some people find that easier to use.

I have recently set up a desktop computer at a new office to allow remote desktop. I had my laptop with me and after working thru a few things, it worked (from my laptop to connect to the desktop when I was there working online off the same router). It is a very simple set up there with only 4 computers and a netgear wireless router. I was on the same network at the time..

Now I am home with the same laptop and it is not working --- "THe client could not connect to the remote computer..." I am using the Windows REmote Desktop.

I am wondering if it has to do with the IP address that I am using...since I am attempting to use the same one that worked at the office - the IP of the speciifc computer behind the router...I don't know much about how IPs work. I remember reading something somewhere about how you have to use a different IP that the router at the office is generating.....??

Thank you for any help you can offer!

Perhaps someone here has an idea - please read the problem description.
I just took over doing the IT work for a local hotel.  This hotel changed ownership and affiliation.  On the day of the change over the OLD management company deactivated and deleted all the Administrator accounts on the server and all desktop
computers.  They deleted the domain controller as well.  So we had to reinstall Windows 7 Professional on 7 of 8 desktop computers.  ONE computer had never joined the domain and we were able to log into it.
So we reinstalled Windows on these 7 computers.  There is no domain controller as there is no server.  Everything is done using the cloud or via Remote Desktop Connections - this is the problem.
On the 7 reinstalled computers when we try to remote into their Quickbooks server the connection fails because the credentials are wrong.  HOWEVER when we use the one computer that we did not reinstall windows the Remote Desktop Connection works using
the same credentials that fail on any of the other computers - they are all on the same network and near as I can tell everything else is the same. 

I have made certain that every setting concerning RDP matches - yet the credentials still fail on the 7 new installations.  I even tried creating new accounts on the remote server.  The new account works on the one computer but fails on the other
7.
I can not figure out what is different but my guess is somethin... Read more

I am trying to set up a remote login with my two laptops, w-PC, and w2-PC.

Firewalls are turned off. The box for the remote coonection is enabled and checked. When I try to connect to w2-PC from w-PC, I get this error message every single time.

Remote Desktop can't connect to the remote computer for one of these reasons:Remote access to the server is not enabled
The remote computer is turned off
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.

I have been trying to figure this out for an hour and cannot get it to work. I have the firewall turned off on both computers.

I have been trying to use remote desktop just within my home to help my wife with her hourly tech problems. Everytime I try to connect to her laptop I get an error "No terminal server installed". 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?

I have a Windows 7 machine that I'm trying to setup to allow Remote Desktop connections so that I can access my machine when I'm away from home. I used this method in the past with other machines and always enjoyed the convenience of working at my home PC when away on vacation, etc.

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:

I've enabled Remote Assistance connections via the System Properties and Allowed connects from any version of Remote Desktop

The Remote Desktop services (3 of them I think) are all enabled and started.

I've checked and Windows Firewall is allowing port 3389 through

I have an Asus RT-N66R router which I've added a Port Forwarding rule to forward that port to the LocalIP of my personal machine.

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 have a small office with one XP Pro computer directly connected to a Verizon Westell 2200 modem (DSL). Not using any router. Dynamic IP address from Verizon (Not static). Remote desktop will not work. I have enabled remote access on both my home comoputer (XP Pro) and the office computer. I looked up the Ip address for the modem by logging into the Westell using 192.168.1.1 from I.E. and used that address at the home computer entering it into the address box for remote desktop. It will not connect. I tried pinging the IP address and it pinged okay. I am lost. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
