Q: Remote Desktop Web Connection Software: Aug 22

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 NT® 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 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.)

I'm looking for compatible software that would be extremely user-friendly for someone who is computer illiterate. I'm trying to connect to a friend's desktop to help them with some Windows 7 issues, but they can't seem to follow directions too well and they live a few states away.

I'm not even sure if it exists, but the program would ideally install on their computer and mine and make it very simple to remotely connect to them.

Hi. I just viewed Kari Finn's clearly explained Remote Desktop Connection on Win10 and how to connect to remote computer, thank you for that. Good job! In my case though, I use Win XP Home edition. Do I have to have Win XP Pro edition to connect on RDC to Win 10 host using Hyper-V virtual creation?
Also, if that is the case, how can I reboot my remote computer XP OS and get onto the Start Up Menu page? The keyboard command is released to my Win 10 host computer on start up and I don't have access to keyboard commands (such as F8) until Win XP has been fully booted up. How do I access that Start Up menu page otherwise?
This would be helpful for me to know. Thanks.

A:Remote Desktop Connection Explained - Question remote XP?

Hi Hibs, welcome to the Ten Forums.

You simply cannot use Windows XP Home as remote host, meaning you cannot connect to it using the Remote Desktop Connection. There are some hacks around the Internet but I very strongly advice against them.

(From Remote Desktop: frequently asked questions)
A workaround, in case you have or can find a valid Windows 7 Professional or Ultimate license is to install Windows 7 on a Hyper-V virtual machine, then install Windows Virtual PC and Windows XP Mode on that virtual machine. Works perfectly giving you Windows XP Pro SP3.

If the mouse and keyboard are released by the Windows XP vm back to host, you simply need to bring the pointer on the vm and click to get them back to vm. The F8 keyboard shortcut when booting XP up works then totally normally bringing up the advanced options boot menu:


To release the mouse and keyboard back to host, press CTRL + ALT + LEFT ARROW.

My problem is this:

I can't run remote desktop connection in my current situation. I'm at home and I'd like to be able to do this.

I have a laptop that's fairly new. It's an HP Pavilion dv6 with an AMD Turioin II P520 dual-core processor that's 2.30 Ghz and it's running Windows 7 Home Premium, the 64-bit version.

I have two computers I'd like to control using my laptop: A Gateway GT5692 running an AMD Phenom 8450 Triple-Core Processor 2.10 GHz that's got the 64-bit version of Windows Vista Home Premium and a HP SR501P with an AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core processor 4200+ 2.20 GHz running the 32-bit version of Windows Vista Home Basic.

All are tied to a router. The laptop runs wireless and the two desktops have a wired lan. All connect to the internet through the router tied to a DSL modem.

I can control the computers using Windows Remote Assistance but not with Windows Remote Desktop connection. What's up with that? http://b.tsgstatic.com/smilies/frown.gif

And when I bring up system properties on my laptop, it has the “Remote Assistance” dialog but not the dialog for “Remote Desktop”. I viewed this on another computer with a video titled “Accessing another computer with Remote Desktop Connection”. On that video, it has the dialog for “Remote Desktop” viewable 50 seconds from the front of the video. I've noticed that this computer's system is “Windows 7 Ultimate” while I'm stuck ... Read more

Remote Desktop Connection wants the IP or name of the remote computer to connect to. But suppose the remote computer is behind a router. The router has one WAN IP, say 192.45.63.98, which will be the same for all the computers connected off of that router, (when you google "my ip" from any of them) and then each computer connected off of the router will have a LAN IP, something like 10.0.0.6. So if I want to help the person connected to the 10.0.0.6 computer (and not the person connected at 10.0.0.9) off of this router what do I tell Remote Desktop Connection at my computer to reach them?

Thanks.

I've recently installed wireless at home and run 2 pc's on it, accessing the web via Comcast broadband. All works well when accessing my office PC via XP's 'Remote access web connection'. I can transfer files between office & home and print to machines that are configured on the host (office) to LPT & COM ports.
Last week I replaced my ageing Epson C80 home printer with a new HP Deskjet 5850 wireless printer. It works great and I can print from my 2 home pc's via wireless.
What I can't figure out is how to configure it on my office host pc so that it can see it via RAWC. I've tried adding a port with the printers IP Address but that doesn't work. Have also tried HP's web sights as well as Wxp's but I guess the wireless printer is too new. Any ideas anyone ?

Okay I have seen some machines where when you remote desktop into them from a single screen machine to a dual screen machine it will shuffle over all apps to the primary screen and you can keep working. I have seen others that will have dual screens and it will leave the app open on the toolbar but you can't get to it because it is on the 2nd screen and htings don't get shuffled over. Now I have a 3rd type of behavior and I need to figure out why PCs are not all behaving the same.

This new symptom is connecting into a Vista machine that has 2 screens. All the apps themseleves stay on the screen they were left on but the sidebar does squish to the First screen.

Some machines -
Dual screen app 1 on screen 1 and app 2 on screen 2
Remote desktop with single screen both apps show on screen 1.

Other machines -
Dual screen app 1 on screen 1 and app 2 on screen 2
Remote desktop with single screen show app on screen 1 and app 2 shows in toolbar but you have to close it and reopen it to get it on screen 1.

New symptom Vista machines -
Dual screen app 1 on screen 1 and app 2 on screen 2
Remote desktop with single screen show app on screen 1 and app 2 shows in toolbar but you have to close it and reopen it to get it on screen 1 but sidebar.exe shuffles to screen 1.

Ultimately I would like them all to behave like the top option but I don't know where you force this behavior.

When I try to click on the Save button I get "An error occurred while saving to file"
When I try to click on the Save As button I get "Unable to open connection file" with the file address being where I tried to save it with the file name at the end.
Also when I upgraded to Windows 8, my .rdp files disappeared from my Documents folder.
 I need to create different .rdp files for different programs that my employees get into on my server. Now I have to hand type all the info each time into the Programs tap on the Remote Desktop Connection window, because I can't save to an

 I like the Remote Desktop App from the Windows store but it won't let me designate specific programs to use using standard dos notation (ie c:\program files\ etc..). It just goes to my server desktop.

Evansj, I suggest that you try logmein.com and see if that won't do what you want. It is free and they have a pay version but the free one works great. You have to install it on the machine that you want to control remotely but there are a few othes out there. Otherwise, the built in Remote Desktop Program works great as long as your remote system has a fixed IP and you have the security permissions set properly.

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.

Hello I was talking to a group of friends who develop for an open source program called rsbot. And the community creates parts of the software for everyone to use.

I was thinking of developing a software that would enable a remote view of just this application and nothing else.

What we are trying to accomplish is making a support system that can temporarily give a user access to just the application on someones computer, so they can help the user accomplish something. Sort if like team viewer.

Sort of like a normal remote connection, but only for that application. Like microsoft can do if you are having trouble with your operating system.

Any help as to where I can start or if you know of a group working on a open source project already.

Thanks
 

A:Specialty remote connection software

To tell you the truth i wouldn't bother. If you are looking at doing support for the software where a technician will log in and see what's wrong with the settings then it could be windows problem not necessarily a problem with software settings. And if all you can look at is the program it will be very unhelpful. As you mention Team Viewer is good for this or you could buy a logmein rescue license which means getting the end user to type a 6 digit code in rather than doing an installation.

If you do want to take the route of remote connection for a single application, then you wouldn't get control of the mouse/keyboard as that's part of the operating system. So what i'd do is when you remote connect via TCP/IP get it to download the settings to the technicians machine. Then write a script to load those settings into their copy. Then said technician can make the changes and submit them back.

That way you'd only have control of the application and you wouldn't see the rest of the end users machine. Though i don't think it'd be overly helpful. If you have any more information on what exactly it'd have to do maybe we could come up with another solution.

Hi;

My problem is with the Remote Desktop Connection.

Up until about a week ago or so it was running fine..however (and I can't be sure about the timing as I don't use it very often)
about a couple of weeks ago, I removed (via Add/Remove) some software that I loaded up in order to watch movies from a site called SILVERSCREEN.ORG I believe, this required installing some software called ILIVID everything was fine. However as the site no longer worked I removed it. Did a search and found some ILIVID components still lying around and removed them by running another Uninstall.exe in the list. This time everything is in the RECYCLE BIN and so here is where the problem begins (wouldn't you know it) everything else (other then the remote desktop connection) seems to run fine.

My REMOTE DESKTOP Log-On Panel is now an older version of the Log-On Panel and I'm getting Authentication error messages when trying to log on. My Username and Password are valid as I use it from my office without any problems.

So how do I get this going again...I would also like the more current Log-On Panel as well. I tried the following
1) - Attempted a number of Restores from checkpoints each one failed and the restore did not do a restore

For some reason, I cannot connect through remote desktop when using hostname. I was able to connect using IP address but our IP"s are not static. I also do not want to make it static and I was able to do it before without using IP. It just started when windows 10 UI changed that made it more distinct from windows 8 .

I used to type Kakoi-PC but now it won't work and forced to use IP. I never created a homegroup nor altered anything in windows firewall but it worked before.

A:Remote Desktop connection using PC name

It has nothing to do with Home Group, nor does it have anything to do with the Network and Sharing Center. It has to do with if your device is passing through the Hostname. Are you using any Internet Security software on any of the computers? Does it show the Hostname for each one when you go to each and open a Command Window, then type in ipconfig /all

Trying to connect my computer (computer1) with a friend's computer (computer2) machine...obviously via the internet....He disabled his A/V and firewall and tried unsuccessfully to connect via the his XP machine to my XP machine.
I have enabled Remote Desktop and have allowed my router to forward
port 3389 to my machine...I think I've done it correctly...I've shut down my firewall (ZoneAlarm Pro) and A/V program and still no connection.

What Services need to run for RDC to be successful?
Is their a "complete" source (ie...book...url ) that would tell me "everything"
about the process need for a successful connection?

I have 4 machines that I can remote connect to using my home network
I have no problems when using RDC locally but over the net is failure.
The following is info that my friend enters to connect to my machine.

1. computer name
2. username
3. password
4. domain (same as computer name OR left blank...same result)

...everything works fine for me locally...but via the www is'
another story.

Should my friend use the IP address of the machine I'm wanting to share
or the IP address of the router?

In the RDC dialog box of my friends machine he enters the IP address,
username and password (sometimes we leave the domain field blank) and receives the error message that IP address whatever cant be found.
???

I'm looking for a guide/suggestions/remarks that would help in this situation.
Thoughts please?...
Thanks in... Read more

A:How Do I Use Remote Desktop Connection?

When you use RDP and go out of your own network, you need to specify the "Outside IP address" of the computer you are trying to connect to. You can get the outside address by opening IE on that computer and typing in www.whatismyip.comThat will give you the outside IP address of the system you are trying to connect to.Now, you need to go onto the router of the network you are trying to connect with and forward port 3389 to the "Inside IP address" of the computer you are trying to connect to. Port forwarding is usually located in the Advanced or Firewall section of your router, usually accessible via a web page interface.To get the Inside IP address of the computer you are trying to connect to, open a command prompt (Start>Run, type CMD and hit OK).Now type in ipconfig /all and you will get a list of your own IP address as well as the default gateway and DNS servers (uusually outside addresses). You will use that IP address when you configure the port forwarding in the router.I hope this helps. Here is a pic.[attachment=3253:Router.bmp]DR

I have tried to setup up Remote Desktop Connection But I get this error.

The remote connection has timed out. Please try connecting to the remote computer again.Click to expand...

so I go to the troubleshoot help thing and it says this:
The remote connection has timed out. Please try connecting to the remote computer again.

Cause: The terminal server disconnected your session because you did not send a response within the time limit set for responses.

Solution: Try connecting to the terminal server again. If you receive this error message, try to reconnect at a later time. If you continue to receive this error message, contact the server administrator.

Cause: A slow network connection, caused by excessive network traffic, has delayed your response to the terminal server.

Solution: Try connecting to the terminal server again. If you receive this error message, try to reconnect at a later time. If you continue to receive this error message, contact the server administrator.Click to expand...

Can anyone help me???
