Remote Desktop from Win 7 Home to Win 8 Pro, not working properly

Q: Remote Desktop from Win 7 Home to Win 8 Pro, not working properly

Here's the setup:
Our server is running Win 2012 R2
Computer I'm trying to remote into is running Win 8 Pro
Computer I'm using for remote connection is Win 7 Home
Note that on a Mac I can connect into the Win 8 computer with no issues.

Here's the problem--- I open up remote desktop connection, put in the IP address and the user name as ourdomain\username
It connects and brings up the login screen, I again type ourdomain\username and the password
It says connecting and logs me into the computer
HOWEVER, it is actually logging in as the local user account--- [email protected]

I've tried various alternatives of this same basic process and am yielding the same results. I'm about to pull out my hair as clearly it will state logging in as ourdomain\user but then it doesn't!
Also once it does login to the computer I cannot figure out a way to switch user accounts.
I've done the typical thing and tried googling this issue and searching these forums but I cannot find a solution. Actually, I can't even find someone with this problem.

I don't think we've attempted to use this particular laptop (win 7 home) since we changed this user over to a Win 8 pro pc so I don't believe it has ever worked.
Could someone please help?!

Hi guys. I have a strange issue that i couldnt solve by searching the web: after installing a replacement GPU, RDP now only connects to the home server when i have "use all my monitors" enabled.

If i have it unticked the session will try to open on my second monitor - which is connected to the onboard GPU, unlike the first, which is connected to the discrete one - as usual, but blurt out a connection error after starting to render the remote desktop.

If i tick "use all my monitors" in RDP settings, a connection is made, but displayed on my main screen.

Can anyone help me solve this extremely annoying issue?

Hi there.

Check the RDP resolution settings on YOUR CLIENT. The computer you are using to RDP to your remote computer might not be able to handle Max video output of the GPU on the remote computer. In any case going over a network it's probably better to reduce video transfer to 16 or 24 bit max.

Do it in the RDP connection settings.

I have XP professional and have been using the desktop remote to remote in to my work computer for about six months from my home laptop. No problem. Worked fine. We are networked at work. I can use any printer in my building.

Last week for some unknown reason, I could not print to our "big copier" at work. I called our tech guy and he said somehow the IP address on the copier changed and we would have to change the IP address on our computer to match. Well, sometime that same week I tried to connect to my work computer from home and had an error message - 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 enabled at the remote computer; 2) the maximum connections at the remote computer are exceeded; 3) a network error occured. I check the IP addresses for my work computer and made sure it had not changed......it hadn't.

I can use any other computer (like my mother's) and it remotes fine. I took my laptop to work and tried it, it worked fine. Used my daughter's laptop at home and it would not remote - same error. It seems it has something to do with my internet connection at home, but I am not sure. Any help would be appreciated. Our tech guy is dumbfounded!

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

4) The Remote Web Workplace designated port might be blocked by a firewall

Ideally I would like to try and sort this out so I can sort out any problems with my mums PC if/when they arise without having to try and talk her through it on the phone which can be quite difficult at times.

Any advice or pointers would be very much appreciated.

Any way to add Remote Desktop (host) to W7 home?
I upgraded to home premium and now found that I can not remote desktop TO this pc
Obviously I could upgrade from home to PRO but didn't know if I can just "add" RDP to this home PC at all

Any thoughts, suggestions?

A:Any way to add Remote Desktop (host) to W7 home?

Hi there
NO -- this is a BIG disappointment to zillions of people who get computers loaded with W7 Home from stores.

It's almost a universal requirement these days that people want to access HOME computers from the Internet / Work etc etc.

There are "3rd party options" like "Logmein" etc but some work places now block these sites and ports and aren't in any case a true alternative for RDP.

There were "get arounds" in Windows XP HOME (XP PRO always allowed RDP as a Server rather than a client) but they seemed to have locked down W7 a bit better now.

I'm sure allowing RDP in W7 Home wouldn't have been a big deal for MS -- it's certainly IMO needed.

For Linux VNC is a good solution -- whether you could use this on Windows as a server I don't know.

Hi all... I'm usually pretty comfortable with networking support, but recently got stuck on a project for a client of mine, and could use a little help.

First, the rather simple goal: to be able for an office employee to use MS Remote Desktop at home to access a work computer.

As I understand it, in order to use RDC from an off-site computer, one will first need to establish a VPN connection to the office network (RDC has been tested within the office environment and works fine)

The office I am supporting has an AT&T broadband connection with 8 static IP's (5 usable) running off of a Netopia 3347-02 (firmware 7.81r2). The Netopia gateway is assigned to 7x.xxx.xxx.30 and the computer I have set up as the VPN server (by doing basically this http://www.onecomputerguy.com/networking/xp_vpn_server.htm) is assigned to 7x.xxx.xxx.20.

I would like to simply VPN to the 7x.xxx.xxx.20 machine, and then RDC into that and 3-4 other machines once on VPN. I have accessed the Netopia settings and set up pinholes for port 1723 on TCP, but repeatedly get an "Error 800" when trying to establish the Windows VPN.

From a topic at another forum (http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r19949739-Help-with-3347NWG006-remote-desktopVPN-issue) I attempted to set up a pinhole for PPTP, but like the user in that topic, do not have such an option in my firmware.

But I checked and the Remote Desktop app is there and there is a place to enter the remote computer name.

I don't want to have to upgrade to the Pro version of Windows 10 unless I have to. I will only be logging into the remote PC from my PC, not the other way around.

Regarding WIN7 HOME to host a REMOTE DESKTOP CONNECTION:

All of MS literature says it cannot be done & your website indicates it can via 3rd party software, but I stumbled onto this @ answers.microsoft.com:

Simply change the fDenyTSConnections value in the ?HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server? hive to ?0? from ?1? and you can RDP into the system. One has always been able to do this. The options available in the UI reflect which editions include support for the feature. You can enable RDP on Home if you wish, it just isn?t supported.

One can also set the UserAuthentication value to 1 in the ?HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server\WinStations\RDP-Tcp? to require NLA if you wish.

Is this BOGUS? I have attempted it & no luck. Maybe I am missing something?

A:Remote desktop WIN7 HOME PREM?

Let's start with the obvious. What you're trying to do is illegal, it violates the license of Windows you've bought. Microsoft sells various editions of Windows and each one has more features that the lesser ones, but they're also more expensive. It's a way to segment the market. From Windows Home Premium the Remote Desktop server has been cut off of it (only the client remains), but you have to upgrade to Professional to get it, among other things. That's the way MS makes money "if you want features, pay me more".

Now for the technical side. Not sure about the method you posted, but I'm sure that in some way it's totally doable. Remember that the editions of Windows are just artificial restrictions over a single code base, just a few registry changes, some setting and maybe missing files or something else hidden out there, but the reality is that Windows 7 Starter all the way up to Windows 2008R2 Datacenter are exactly the same program with features artificially stripped out.
So, possible, yes, I'm pretty sure it's possible, but no idea how. Even then, remember that this forum don't support illegal things, so you won't get it here anyway.

I want to use my desktop as the host computer and would like to run "Remote Desktop" so I can access the desktop via my laptop. I've been told both that it is possible and that it is not.

Hello, nice to meet you all.

I have a home network http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Home_network with a Linksys Boradband Router WRT54G http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linksys_WRT54G_series . I have 3 PCs in my home within my network. It seems i can't remote connect from any of the wireless PCs to my main one where the router is connected to (the one with my local non-wireless connection) . I get no error messages. I simply click CONNECT and it comes back IMMEDIATELY to the "connect" screen.

For example, i launch Remote Desktop from a wireless PC, input the IP of the main local PC and click "Connect", but it keeps coming back immediately to the very same screen, as if nothing ever happened.

This wasn't a problem in the past. One day i reimaged my OS and suddenly it's never worked again. I later decided to do a clean install of Windows, and still have the same problem.

I wonder if there's a setting in my router OR deep within Windows im missing?

I already checked some of the obvious settings such as allowing access to Remote Desktop through my router, windows firewall http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_Firewall , enabling incomng connections via the "Remote tab" under Control Panel, etc.

I have:

I have a friend who has Vista Home - not sure if it's Basic or Premium. She is definitely not computer savvy and has issues from time to time that I would like to be able to remotely assist her with using my XP Pro. In the past I have used Cross Loop with other friends, but now it is no longer free. I need something like that, but the alternatives I have seen all seem to require some kind of subscription. I do not want that, I just want to be able to have her install something simple, with no trial periods because I envision my friend needing ongoing occasional assistance. I did a quick search through these forums and found one possibility: TightVNC. I am going to test that on my little VirtualBox network, but in the meantime I would welcome advice. íMuchas gracias!

Hi guys... I have a series of questions about this topic:

I'm using Vista Home Premium 64-bit SP1 on my desktop PC... and on my laptop I have Home Premium 32-bit SP1... when I'm away from home and on my laptop (school, work, etc) I would like to connect to my desktop at home so I can run stuff, etc etc etc... but the problem is I don't know how to set these things up!! I don't even know if it's possible for a 32-bit to connect to a 64-bit.

As for the connection on the desktop, it is hooked up on a Linksys WRT54GL router running DSL. Laptop would connect mainly wirelessly. I don't have any "aftermarket" firewall programs on my desktop (only Windows Firewall enabled).

I've never done anything with remote desktop before except back in the days when I had dedicated servers (those had info provided with remote desktop connection etc etc). I'm desperate to find a way to do it with my own machines!!

Any help appreciated. Good day!

A:Using remote desktop with Vista Home Premium 64-bit

teamviewer is the easyest way to do that http://www.teamviewer.com/
its very very easy to set up jus launch on both ends and enter the ID and the password and it conacts and instantly schows you whats on the pc and it works very smooth
i think you can also set it up to run at startup so you can do stuf like restarting the computer ect...

logmein is a more complex one ut it has more options https://secure.logmein.com

This is from MS's Windows Vista Help:

You cannot use Remote Desktop Connection to connect to remote (host) computers running the following editions of Windows Vista:

? Windows Vista Starter

? Windows Vista Home Basic

? Windows Vista Home Basic N

? Windows Vista Home Premium

I guess I should have done my research before I purchased Home Premium...

When I had XP on my office PC (in my upstairs office), I would often use remote desktop from my laptop while watching TV and such. Can't do that anymore!

Is there any work around for this other than PCAnywhere or a similar product?

Thanks!

A:Home Premium and Remote Desktop Connection

Well, you could use any variety of VNC to achieve a work around. They aren't nearly as seamless as the windows remote desktop, but they do work in a pinch.

I have VPN service running on my Linksys DD-WRT router at home, so I can VPN back into my home network when using unsecured wireless internet on travel. I also have remote desktop port forwarding to my home machine if I want to just remote desktop in without using the VPN. However, often times I will VPN in, then remote desktop to my machine. Lately, I can VPN in, but remote desktop to the machine's NAT'ed address on the local network doesn't work. I used to be able to do it that way and I'm not sure what has changed. The home machine runs Windows 7 and the laptop I use on the road for VPN'ing back in runs Windows XP. Any ideas why after I VPN in to the home network I can't see any other machines on the network anymore? I have a folder shared on the home machine that I'd like to map to my laptop once I've VPN'ed in but it can't see that either.

Any ideas or help would be appreciated.

A:VPN'ed into home router, but can't remote desktop to machine on LAN

The home network subnet is 192.168.1.0/24 using DHCP (with the home machine statically keeping it's x.x.x.147 address) and the VPN pool consists of two addresses of 192.168.1.160 and 192.168.1.161. Network sharing and discovery is all turned on for the Win7 home machine, as well as the XP machine.

Hi. I have been trying to set up a native remote desktop access between two different household networks and am completely stuck. The computer I want to remote desktop to is a Windows 7 Professional which I can RDC to within it's own home network flawlessly from another windows client. I set it up with a static IP and forwarded port 3389 on the router to that IP and determined the external network IP. Now theoretically when I open the RDC client window on the other remote household network and punch in that external IP, it should connect but it doesn't. Instead I get the usual "Remote Desktop can't connect to the remote computer......" message.

Any ideas where I can troubleshoot further? I prefer native Remote Desktop to any of the other remote software packages.

Thx!

Is there any software out that allows you to connect remotely on a machine which is on a small local network? I have setup a local area network around my home and was just curious one day if there was any way to do this?

I'm running Windows XP Home Edition SP3. I have the XP disk and have followed the instructions for installing the Remote Desktop from the disk. But when I go to do the installation, I'm told the Remote Desktop is already installed. But it is not installed.

Before I got the "correct" instructions and located the XP installation disk, I tried to unsuccessfully install from a download from Microsoft.

What do I need to do to get Remote Desktop successfully installed?

Thanks.

Hi everyone,
I have scoured the web for a solution to this. Yes, I know MS built Vista HP not to be able to "receive" Remote Desktop.

Right now my Vista HP 64 can easily "send" Remote Desktop out to my Windows 7 Pro and XP Pro systems.
So! Is there a current tool/hack anywhere which I can use to RD "TO" VHP???

I am not interested in any third party tools such as LogMeIn where my credentials leave my house. I want to stay completely behind my firewall.

Any working solution will be really appreciated.

Hi All.

I have a Win 7 Home Premium box along with 4 WinXP boxes in a simple network. My Win 7 box can Remote Desktop to any of the WinXP boxes, and be used to "drive" them, no problem.

I added a new machine yesterday that came with Win 7 Home Premium. After searching through other threads, I found it was stated that if I upgrade the new box to Win 7 Pro or Ultimate, I can then use my original Win 7 Home Prm to connect to, and "drive" the new Win 7 Ult. box.

I successfully upgraded the new box, it's now confirmed to be running Win 7 Ultimate. I have also disabled the firewall, and checked the Remote Box Settings:
Allow connections from computers running any version of Remote Desktop (less secure)..

However, the Home box cannot connect to the Ultimate box. It times out with the following error:
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.

All three of these conditions are false.

Please help!!!

Thanks,
Jerry

PS - I can ping the machine, so it's "there" in some form or fashion...

A:Remote Desktop in Windows 7 Home Premium

Enable Remote Desktop Connection on Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 - Hoff Says
That's safe. It only has the files termsrv.dll, termsrv.exe, rdpclip.dll, rdpclip.exe
And a firewall rule.

Those 4 files are just put in %SystemRoot%\System32\
They are taken from a win7 ultimate machine. At least that's what they normally do
