Home Premium and Remote Desktop Connection

Q: Home Premium and Remote Desktop Connection

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!

Preferred Solution: Home Premium and Remote Desktop Connection

I recommend downloading and running Outlook PST Repair. It's a PST repair tool that I've used it in the past to recover emails, contacts, tasks and notes from corrupt Outlook files that are damaged or inaccessible. Supports Outlook 2000, 2002, 2003, 2007, 2010 and 2013.

You can download it direct from this link http://goo.gl/1bjhSi. (This link will automatically start a download of Outlook PST Repair that you can save to your computer.)

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.

Are there any new setting changes I need to make on my XP Pro machine, so I can access it with Remote Desktop from my Vista Home Premium machine?

I'm able to RDP into a box with Server 2003, but I cannont access my local XP Pro machine with my new Home Premium laptop.

Also, I can access shared folders on the computer running XP from my Vista laptop... in case that matters.

I also downloaded and used TeamViewer, and although it worked I was only able to take control of the XP machine if I'd already logged in, which isn't what I need.

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!

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.

Hello --

I'm thinking of upgrading to Win 7 home premium since XP is no longer supported. I run it through my Mac with parallels.

Stupid questions, maybe, but I'll ask them:

Does home premium have remote desktop and if so is it possible to use it with a wireless internet connection? I seemed to have been able to do this with XP, but the bitrate was slow, and it's jut been upgraded to handle streaming audio (the work that I do streams audio from a server, rather than downloading it; just the way my employer wants it).

Do I need an ethernet cable running to my Mac, or can I use the airport connection (the wireless internet option) to stream audio?

A:Does Win 7 home premium: remote desktop: wireless internet possible

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

You can compare the features here:
Compare Windows 7 Editions

All versions of W7 can connect to other computers using a Remote Desktop Connection (RDC). But only Pro and above can host an RDC session. In other words, only Pro and above cal receive an RDC call.

I use a wireless connection with RDC. I can stream audio and video via RDC via wireless. I'm just not sure about an airport connection. You let us know :-)

I'm afraid I might already know the answer - is it true the only Professional and Ultimate versions of Windows 7 can accept Remote Desktop Connection requests? I read on a post from 2009 that "any version of Windows 7 can act as a Remote Desktop client, but only Ultimate and Profession can host a Remote Desktop."

I'm not sure I completely understand that - I do understand what host and client mean.

However,d despite lots of different setting changes, I can't connect to this Windows machine using Remote Desktop.

In my job at IBM, I connect to hundreds of computers daily using Remote Desktop, easily. That's why the OS version issue seems like a strong, but frustrating, possibility.

Okay, so I beat my head against my desk for 20 minutes this morning because I couldn't see the "Remote Desktop" section under the "Remote" tab in "System Properties" under "Allow Remote Access" in "System and Security"...

Then I realized that one of my machines is running Win7 Home Premium and the other is running Win7 Professional. According to MS's website, Win7HP users can't allow a remote desktop connection.

So my questions is... what is there a "Remote Setting" link and what does "All Remote Assistance" connections to this computer do if not allow "Remote Desktop" connections?

I guess I don't understand the difference. Color me ignorant, but I thought (probably wrongly) that Remote Desktop and Remote Assistance were the same thing... But they aren't, right?

Thanks...

A:Question about Remote Desktop and Win7 Home Premium

I searched for differences between Remote Desktop and Remote Assistance in Win7 and didn't really find a side-by-side comparison. I found articles talking about the differences in XP, but not Win7.

I did notice one difference: With RA the person needing help has to initiate the process, right? I thought that I read that RD was faster than RA... is that correct? Any other differences in capabilities? Thanks...

I hope the following feedback of what I've done or observed will help solve this issue:
- No listening on TCP Port 3389 was displayed after executing netstat in cmd line

- Remote Desktop Service in services.msc is set to automatic and restarted several times
- TermService running in Task Manager with PID 1196. Netstat shows however that UDP is listening on port 5355 for that PID

- RD access is activated accordingly in the system control panel.
- Deactivating the firewall didn't help
- May be an important observation : Since following two drivers are not listed under the Device Manager:

Hi, can anyone tell me if Windows 7 Home Premium supports remote desktop connections?  In the "compare" list that Microsoft gives comparing all versions of Windows 7 there is no indication that it doesn't.  But in looking at the instructions on

On the screenshot under #3 - on my computer the bottom part of that window called REMOTE DESKTOP doesn't show up!  So just wondering if I need a different version.  

A:Does Windows 7 Home Premium Support Remote Desktop Access

All editions of Windows 7 include Remote Desktop Connection.

 

You can use Remote Desktop to initiate a connection from any edition of Windows 7.
You can connect to computers running Windows 7 Professional, Windows 7 Ultimate, or Windows 7 Enterprise.
You can't use Remote Desktop Connection to connect to computers running Windows 7 Starter, Windows 7 Home Basic, or Windows 7 Home Premium.

At some stage, Remote Desktop Connection (within my home network) from my Toshiba laptop running Win 7 Pro 32 bit to my Custom desktop running Win 7 Pro 64 bit stopped working using the desktop's computer name. At the time I was too busy to track down the reason. After some checking I have found that if I disconnect my router from the phone line, it works!
Here is the detail:
When I RDC using the computer name I get an error "Remote Desktop can't connect to the remote computer..." [When I check the current IP address of the desktop and use it in RDC, I get a login prompt; as soon as I login I get an error message about the validity of the desktop's security certificate. I can bypass this and connect ok. However, I don't want to have to keep checking for the current IP address of the desktop....]
By elimination, I found that if I disconnected my router from the Internet by unplugging the phone line, I could easily connect (but with the same security certificate error).
I then suspected some software must be the culprit. I turned off my Windows firewall, Avast antivirus and Spybot and tried again, but this did not solve it.

I am not sure what to do next. I have discounted the security certificate error. It says that it is not from a trusted certifying authority.
Any help appreciated.

A:Remote Desktop within home network restriced by Internet connection

Hi there
You need to enable PORT forwarding on your router -- Can't remember but I think the port is something like 3389 - also allow it through any firewalls.

One of the problems with RDP is that if you want to access SEVERAL machines remotely on the same network then you need to fiddle the port numbers and route the correct port to the relevant machine - you can't route the SAME port to different machines - however accessing a specific SINGLE machine is easy enough).

Also to other users reading this post-- the emote computer can only be accessed if it's a Windows PRO version or higher (Ultimate / Enterprise). Home premium won't work - Home premium only allows your computer to work as a CLIENT.

I think also your networking setup needs to set DHCP as well on the router otherwise you will have to remember the actual LOCAL IP addresses of your machine (the IP addresses on your LAN). Windows Networking should remember the computer names on your LAN.

To access from OUTSIDE your LAN the port forwarding is required since to the OUTSIDE your service providers IP assigned address is what you see on the Internet and the RDP needs to be routed to the correct computer -- this gets a bit messy when your provider gives you dynamic IP addresses - but there are solutions for that like DynDNS.

(Note TCP port for port forwarding if your router requests PORT TYPE)

I have an interesting challenge with Remote Desktop.

I am connecting via a VPN (using Shrewsoft) to a Windows XP SP3 computer in the UK. The tunnel is created successfully and when I connect using my own personal laptop (Lenovo) I am able to connect and login. My Lenovo is running Windows 7 Professional SP1.

The person I am configuring this connection for is using a Samsung RV511 running Windows 7 Home Basic. Once again the VPN connection is establsihed succesfully using Shrewsoft, however when connecting using Remote Desktop, the connection shows me the remote screen, with the ip address showing at the top, however the login dialogue box does not show. The background colour of the remote screen shows, just no login credentials box.

I have optimised the MTU settings on the computer involved, turned off bitmap caching on the Remote Desktop Connection settings, disabled all firewalls, all anti virus software, all to no avail. The computer is connecting to a DSL router via a wireless connection.

Any suggestions (aside from installing Team Viewer) would help. Thanks

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?

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.

Since I upgraded to Windows 8, I am no longer able to save individual Remote Desktop Connection files as .rdp files. I am talking about the traditional Remote Desktop Connection application on the Desktop that was in previous Windows versions, not the
Remote Desktop App from the Windows 8 store.
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
.rdp file.
 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.
 I want to promote Windows 8 to my employees but I need either .rdp files for the traditional Remote Desktop Connection or the ability to open specific programs using dos notation in the Windows Store Remote Desktop App.

Is remote connection, under accessories a normal thing to find on XP home sp3? Never noticed it before. Some other places say it was only for pro.

Hello all,

So I have a user that just installed Vista Home Premium and need to access the domain for file sharing. I know you cant connect to a domain via Vista Home but I was wondering if anyone has come up with a seperate method to achieve this. I have the user VPN'ed but im up in the air after that??

Thanks Much
Antony

A:Vista Home Premium Connection To A Domain

Vista Home cannot connect to a domain but the only way that I know is to set up FTP on the server and access files that way.

Hi,

A long time ago I started looking into this because my mum has a PC with XP Home on and I am running XP Pro (both fully up to date), however I seem to recall reading that you couldn't remote into a XP Home machine, only into a XP Pro machine, is this correct?

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.

PS. Not sure if this would be better suited in the networking forum or not? If so, feel free to move it.

Thanks in advance.

I have two Windows xp home edition PCs connected on a workgroup through a Linksys wrt54g

I realize that the rdp server application is only on the professional edition of xp.

I was wondering if there was any freeware app I could use to turn my desktop PC into a terminal remote desktop server so I could access it with my laptop remotely using the remote desktop connection client app that comes installed on home edition.

Any suggestions?

I just got a new laptop and usually connected through a wireless connection. I have recently started using remote desktop connection. I have connected twice successfully. Both times it was when I was connected through a Cad-5. Once at a friends house and another at my families place. I have never connected while the laptop has been wireless. Do I need to do something different to connect remotely when I am using the laptop wirelesslly?
 

A:Remote Desktop Connection With Wireless Connection

Nope.
Cat-5 or Wireless is still a LAN, and the RDP(RDC) does not see it as any different, it may just be a little slower.

Yesterday my PC crashed, and now when I log on to Windows I have NO DESKTOP. Luckily, the one thing that does come up is the Documents folder in Windows Explorer, and from there I can get to most of my files. This works, but it's a real pain to have no desktop or start bar.

Tried calling Windows support, no help there. Tried using the online chat, and that was even worse. You would think that a multi-billion dollar company could at least have the decency to provide real service for those unfortunate enough to have to use their buggy, proprietary software.

Anyway, I figure there's probably a fairly simple solution to this, and I've just overlooked it. I was trying to play a movie on DivX when it crashed. I tried deleting the .avi and uninstalling the DivX player, no luck. Tried booting in safe mode, and I get the same problem.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Hi All,

I did the Vista compatibility scan on my desktop last night, and received the recommendation to use Vista Business.

This desktop is a home use machine, and I would prefer to use home premium

the spec for the desktop is:

Gigabyte GA-945GCMX-S2 motherboard (Rev 6.6 1066 FSB)
Intel Pentium Dual-core E2160 Processor (800 FSB)
ATI Radeon X1300 PRO Graphics card (256Mb Ram)
2 X Seagate SATA HDD's running in IDE Mode
Windows XP Professional (My Employer's Corporate version)
Office 2003 (Corporate version)
Gigabyte GD-1703BP V.3 17" LCD Monitor (soon to be replaced with a ASUS MB19TU 19" wide screen LCD)
I also have a HP PSC 1110 All-in-one printer and a CANON PiXma 4000 printer attached to the PC, and have been told to get the Vista drivers from the vendor (no problem with that!), same as for the Radeon

Could you advise - it seems that the business version does not support the multimedia apps. as well as HP does

Thanks

Kev'

A:Will Vista Home Premium Work On My Desktop?

It probably noted the corporate editions and that's the reason it recommended Business. I'd suggest that you check out the features here for specifics on what you get/don't get: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/products/...ons/choose.mspxDon't forget to check the Canon and HP websites for Vista-compatible drivers for your printers before upgrading - this will surely affect your decision to upgrade. The Radeon drivers are available for Vista. Here's a link to the Vista drivers for your mobo at Gigabyte: http://www.giga-byte.com.tw/Support/Mother...?ProductID=2521

A friend told me she was doing some school work of some sort on it & now she nor I can get it to boot to desktop. She said it has a virus,but....
I however did manage just now to get it to the desktop & was in the process of checking the settings in Google Chrome when the screen went black. Since then, I've tried f8 repeatedly, last known configuration a few times, safe mode with networking & probably others & no joy.
I talked to her & told her I might have to reset it to factory settings & she'd lose everything. She said that would be ok. Its a Windows 7 Home Premium laptop Model SVE14118FXW
I was considering putting Firefox portable on a flashdrive so I could hopefully get a scan or two going,but I don't know.
I will continue to "try" to get it up & going & post back if I have any luck, thanks, any ideas
