Can remote access or activity in the server be tracked?

Q: Can remote access or activity in the server be tracked?

I work in a small company with around 40 employess and most of them access our server through remote desktop connection. Most of them have limited capabilities and some were assigned admin rights.
Few days ago someone tried to mess with some confidential folders and we couldnt even open them logged in as administrator. Is a 2003 windows server. My question is if theres a way to track the activity and find out who might have done the changes? The IT guy said there is no way to track it, but since it must have been through one of those remote sessions I think probably theres a way?

Thank you

Preferred Solution: Can remote access or activity in the server be tracked?

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.)

So, I was doing some e-mail work at home, and I use google chrome and was logged into my gmail account that we use for my work. I then closed that window and proceeded to go to a webpage in a different tab. This was not a google search. When I returned to the google page I noticed I was still logged in. Checking my account I noticed that things I had searched for in chrome had been saved.to my search history.

So, my question is. If I was logged into my work's google account, even if I was not on a google page, and was at home, would my boss still know what web sites I went to. for example, in a new chrome window or tab, if I typed XYZ.com in the address bar, would my boss know that I went to XYZ.com?

Thank you.

So I was typing away quickly. Too quickly for my own good, it might appear.
I was editing (as in, I'm an editor) a large text. I'd nearly finished. All of sudden Word (2007) closed.
When i reopened the file i found that all the text (16,000 words...) had been deleted. I had edited nearly all of it using track changes.
What I reckon happened was that I hadn't released the ctrl key from when i'd been moving the cursor around and I accidentally selected all, typed something else (thus replacing it all), then saved and closed the document (by holding ctrl and slipping from S to W).
It looks to me like if i reject the deletion (of the whole text) then I lose all the changes I made to the original text. This is hours and hours of work.
I can't see a temp file that I can restore from or anything.
Might there be any way of restoring the document to a state it was at at a specific point in time? Before I accidentally deleted everything, saved the document and then closed it?
Please let there be a way of rescuing my work!

Operating system: Windows XP Home

Thurs. nite, something happened to my computer, where files in \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM were corrupt or missing. This has happened before, so I threw in my Windows disk and "repaired" it.

I immediately ran the Norton Antivirus (which had updated that morning). HijackThis (nothing unusual), Adaware6 and Spybot.

I have not had a problem doing this before. However this time, I cannot get online. The two error messages I've received are:

Remote Access Server Error. A device attached to the system is not functioning.

OR

Remote Access Server Error. The request is not supported.

I uninstalled Compuserve, then reinstalled, but still get the same error messages.

Also, about 14 hrs. after the computer bombed, Nortons found a "virus":

Virus name: Suspicious Script
Feature: Script Blocking
Action Taken: Blocked
Suspicious action: File System Object: GetSpecialFolder
I called my internet server (Compuserve) who told me that I needed to uninstall, then reinstall DUN.

Please help. I'm at a friend's house, as I can't get online, so my responses might take time.....

Thanks,

Sorry if this topic is in the wrong section. Not sure where it goes.

I would like to setup my server to allow remote access from home. It's on an office network which is separated from the WAN by a router. So long as I'm on this network, I can access the server from any computer connected to it. I enter the https URL of my server through IE and it brings me to the helm interface (the one that comes with Windows Server 2003). I can click on Maintenance and then on Remote Desktop, and it opens a new window with the server's desktop displayed.

If I'm somewhere other than the office network, I can't access it. IE gives me a "can't find webpage" message (or something along those lines). How do I setup my server to access it from outside the office network. I'd prefer to have a similar graphical interface as Remote Desktop.
 

A:Solved: getting remote access to my server

You should be able to access it from anywhere using the MS remote desktop client that ships with xp. The catch is that you have to set your router up to forward all remote desktop requests (port 3389) to your server's ip. From the outside, put IP that your ISP assigns to your router in the remote desktop client and it should open up a login screen. The other option would be to set up an IPSEC connect on your router (if it will let you). Then you connect to your router with IPSEC VPN and it's like your on your network... where ever you are.

Hello,
I've just started with a small company who already have AD and a file server, exchange, etc. They currently use webdav or RDS to remotely access files on the server and everyone complains about having to imput their username and password to open a file and how slow it is. I'm trying to find the best solution to give them access to the files without using the cloud. The main office, where I am has AD. 2 Remote offices have no infrastructure, but using laptops provided by us with domain cached credentials. Then there are 2 people in another country who work from home. I thought VPN either client based for everyone or static between the offices with each office having a DC and syncing files a few times a day. I'm just not sure that is the right choice for such a small company. Circa 30 people. 12 in main office, 5 in the other two offices. Also good to mention, the two other offices do not have a reliable fast internet connection. Please, what solutions do I have without using the Cloud?

I will attempt to be as clear and concise as possible. The situation is that a company is being purchased by another company. Company A is being asked for information by company. Company B wants all of the information required to remotely access company A's servers as soon as the transaction is completed. The problem is company A no longer has IT support or even anyone onsite who is capable of providing this information. Company B has specifically requested a domain password. I have been given this responsibility because I am the closest thing they have to support. I have established remote access between personal computers in the past. But never a company server. How can I direct those onsite through the process of accessing the required information from their servers and then possibly setting up a vpn or remote test to make sure it works? Is a domain password all that company B will require to remotely access servers and network of company A?

Description of Systems:
Two independent family companies, each with their own LAN, FILE SERVERS and WIN98 Workstations, each operating independently and successfully using different workgroup names. One company is using WIN2000 Server and the other WIN2000 Pro on the file server and all workstations use WIN98. Both FILE SERVERS are using NTSF file system on the partitioned drive for the files being shared. Everybody has DSL. I am wanting to be able to work from my home and access the files, via the internet, on each file server.

- I am able to map to one of the WIN98 workstations on the WIN2000 PRO network.

A:Remote access to file server via the internet

Make sure that NetBIOS is bound to your network card on the server/PC you are trying to connect to. Big security risk doing this though...anyone can access your files!! If you have a firewall open to the proper ports with letting static IP's in thru them then you should be fine.

Hi Team,

I plan to get a mac mini. I would like to have direct access to the machine remotely, just like i did when i connected my laptop pc to my desktop pc via VNC.

My specific question :- is it possible to access the mac via a remote client so that it opens in a window on a Win7 64bit I7 pc?

I ultimately want to control the mac desktop via my win7 pc, mouse and keyboard.

Thanks in advance.

A:Remote Access to Mac mini via VNC client/server

Why wouldn't you just install VNC on your new Mac machine, allowing it to be controlled from the PC?

The product itself is cross-platform.

There are downloads for each host and each client environment.

I'm not a Mac person and only use VNC for Windows hosts and clients. But the product's description certainly shows it as being intended to be cross-platform capable.

Hey everybody,

Im hoping someone here can help me out. I am running Outlook 2007 on my laptop and Exchange 2003 on a personal server located in my apt.

When I am in my apt. connected to my wireless, as expected, I have no issues sending/receiving email through exchange.

When I am on the road however, I am obviously unable to connect to my exchange server. I setup a VPN tunnel that works successfully and when I manually dial the VPN connection or manually put outlook into offline mode (so that it dials the VPN connection), I am able to successfully get my emails through exchange.

My question is, is there away to setup outlook such that I dont have to manually dial the VPN or put it in offline mode? I set the exchange server account settings to automatically detect my connection status, but it is detecting my network connection as being ok, even though the Exchange server is not located on that network and needs to be dialed in.

I know it sounds lazy and it is, but Id rather not have to manually do anything, especially if I decide to give some of my less computer literate friends email addresses in my domain. Id rather not use IMAP and SMTP due to security issues having to open the ports on the firewall.

The simplest way is to configure an FTP server on the server. That doesn't require any special handling. If you don't have a static IP address, you can use DynDNS or a similar service to map your dynamic IP address to a static URL.

I am having a very frustrating problem with unauthorized and silent/secret access of my computer.

I have tried making a windows 7 lite version myself, but either I do not eliminate the correct services or features that I need to, or I eliminate too much and the system does not work correctly or install at all. I do not know anything about group policy, or the snap ins, or the management console, where I know is the solution.

Hi there,

On Linux, we can easily enable remote access to MySQL server, but on Windows, I got no success so far ( a client tried to connect to MySQL on the server)

Here's the steps to do that (on the server computer):

1. Open a DOS command prompt on the server.
2. Run the following command from the mysql\bin directory:
mysql -u root --password=
3. A mysql> prompt should be displayed.
4. To create a remote user account with root privileges, run the following commands:
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON *.* TO 'USERNAME'@'IP' IDENTIFIED BY 'PASSWORD';

'USERNAME' is the username to be created.
'IP' is the public IP address of the remote connection.
'PASSWORD' is the password to be assigned for this username.
(IP can be replaced with % to allow this user to logon from any host or IP)

mysql> FLUSH PRIVILEGES;
mysql> exit;

So it is. But I couldn't connect to that MySQL from another computer, both are Windows XP.

If you have any experience, I'd like to receive your help.

Thanks in advance.

I can't think of any off hand that would restrict just one resource - that's not to say there aren't though.  Here's what you can do to check the Services:
Note that you must be logged in as a Domain Admin or have Local Admin privileges on the machines.
Start up two instances of services.msc.
On one of them connect to one of the Windows 7 machines that is working properly.  The other leave connected locally.  
Now go down the list and make sure the services on your machine match the services on the working machine.  If they don't, change them so that they do.  Pay particular attention to the Server and Workstation services.  Also the Remote Procedure
Call and RPC Endpoint Mapper services.

I want to be able to remote control my moms PC. Both our PC's are W8 pro. I used a pro android app called jump remote desktop from my android tablet which allowed me to control my moms PC but it logged her out of her PC so she got a blank display while I controlled it. If I use the integrated W8 pro remote desktop would my mom also be logged out and get a blank screen? How about the chrome web browser remote desktop extension? Am I right this is the only way that I can control her PC while she can still see what I'm doing. Does chrome extension log her out of windows? Another problem with having her log out of windows is then the next time she turns on her PC she will be asked for windows password even though we have it setup to start windows without asking for sign in info. Is chrome extension best solution for me? Easy to setup?

I'm running Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT) on Windows 7 Professional 64-bit and I've noticed that when I run the DHCP Management tool (DHCPMGMT.MSC) and I add our DHCP Authorised server then close the console, it forgets the DHCP server and I
have to re-select it next time I use the console. 
On the other hand, the DNS console remembers that I've used a particular DNS server even after I close the console.
Wondering why the DHCP Management console is so forgetful?

I never had this problem on Windows 7. But when I remote to a Win 10 PC, start a process, let's say copying files, when I close the connection (via the X at the top...NOT disconnect from start menu), it closes the copy process.

Are there some new settings or something that I need to change to correct this?

The highlighted part in the above quote is totally irrelevant. Whatever method you use to disconnect the remote connection, the connection between the remote client (computer you are using to connect to remote PC) and the remote host (computer you are connecting to) will be cut off.

Clicking the Close button top right in the remote session Window is one way to disconnect.

There's nothing to correct. If you were copying a file within the remote host, from one location on that machine to another location on that same machine, the copy process will continue even when you disconnect.

If you were copying a file from a remote client to a remote host or vice versa when disconnected, this process will naturally be aborted because the connection between the two machines will be lost.

The title says it all! Basically I have a comp running XP pro and I want to be able to work locally on one user account, with some kind of remote access server running on another XP user account so that the remote account and the local account can be used simultaniously. I know that this cannot be done with XP Pro remote desktop and could be by Windows Server 2003 remote desktop, but i need an alternate solution to make this happen.

Thanks!

I asked a question in another thread wanting to know if there were any good free alternatives to programs PCAnywhere or GoToMyPC. Boy did I ever get more than I expected in TeamViewer that EAFiedler suggested.

Now I have a technical question about how TeamViewer works. It connects to remote systems across the internet not by an IP number that I enter but rather by an arbitrary nine-digit number assigned to the system when the program is set up. It connects so quickly that I know it cannot be scanning every IP address on the 'net looking for a TeamViewer connection at every one of them. So, I have deduced that there must be a server out there somewhere that stores TeamViewer information.

Does anyone know enough about this to confirm this and/or explain it to me somewhat?

Next question: What about security? Are there any security issues I should be concerned about, other than the obvious, of course?

I have a home network of 4 Win 7 computers which I leave running when I'm away from home to provide data to my website, among other things. In the past, I've been using Remote Desktop to access my home computers. It works very well, but it's always a challenge getting everything set up to work right before I go. I was wondering if others who have used Remote Desktop as well as other means of remote access would care to share their experience and express a preference, if any.

Thanks.

This morning, I heard a nationally syndicated computer expert state that some Chinese hackers were "getting into" Windows based computers through "Remote Access/Remote Desktop" even if the service is turned off. According to the guru, "They will turn it on for you."
Being very concrete, as well as, somewhat dull concerning computers, I find this hard to believe. Could someone, in layman's terms, tell me the circumstances needed that would allow a hacker to take control of someone's system when a necessary service is turned off ??

For the last month or so, about once a week, my hard drive gets very active for quite a long time (maybe an hour or two). I had wondered if there was a scan going on in the background, perhaps Microsoft or McAfee, but could find no evidence of what was causing it. I've never configured anything to perform automated tasks.

I've run full McAfee virus scans, and also AdAware and SpyBot and nothing comes up.

When the hard drive activity started again on Sunday, just as I was shutting down, I got a message about the DDE Server and that I needed to click to end the application. So that's what I assume is causing the unexplained activity I've been experiencing.

Do I have spyware or some other malicious entity on my computer?

Thank you for any assistance.

Hiya

This step-by-step guide describes how to configure remote access policies through the Routing and Remote Access snap-in when Routing and Remote Access is configured to use a Windows authentication provider and through the Internet Authentication Service (IAS) snap-in when Routing and Remote Access is configured to use a Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service (RADIUS) authentication provider. This guide offers only step-by-step procedures for configuring remote access policies, not strategies for implementing remote access connectivity. It is intended for administrators who have experience managing the remote access features of Microsoft® Windows Server™ 2003 operating systems.

Hello,

I received quite a few "Encryption downgrade activity" ATA alerts.

I noticed that the encryption method of the Encrypted_Timestamp field of AS_REQ message from the Hadoop machine account had been downgraded based on previously learned behavior and also that the encryption method of the TGT field of TGS_REQ message from the
FIM server had been downgraded based on previously learned behavior. This keeps happening over and over again for some reasons.

Do you know, by any chance, what might cause the encryption downgrade activity on the Hadoop machine account as well as the FIM server?

Thank you very much in advance.

Hello,

My computer has been acting very strange for the past week or two. Every time I search anything on google chrome or IE I get redirected to another page. I know my computer is infected with something but honestly I am not too sure. I have ran Norton, ad aware, and countless programs but they all do not seem to find anything or when they do it never fixes the problem. Earlier today I see Norton said it blocked an intrusion attempt from Zero Access rootkit activity 2 but although they blocked the attack I know something is still wrong with my computer. Could you please help?

Thanks,

have had no issue at all for a long time and all was well. Then this week I was on my pc (Windows XP) and went to shut down the pc, but when I went to Start to look for shute down it was not there and neither was the Run command. I researched online and found out it maybe called the quickinfo virus. I followed a few steps and got back the run command and shutdown button. I though all was fine but now when I go to open Adobe Photoshop CS I get and error I must have Admin rights to load program and it shuts down. I looked at user accounts and their is only one mine and it has admin rights. Also if I hit ctrl+alt+delete it says it has been diabled as I do not have admin rights.

How do I fix this issue?

Is this the name of the virus I have, or is it something else?

I pasted what I followed to get links back below just as FYI. Please help as I can not do any work. Thanks Much
Open a command prompt (CMD) from accessories menu -> type "gpedit.msc" expand the user configuration node -> expand admin templates -> click "Start Menu and Taskbar -> int he right pane look for "remove run menu from start menu from start menu" it should be set to "not configured" if it is double click it set to enable, click apply, then set to disable and click apply. if it's set to enabled then set to disable. Reboot and see if run's back on the start menu.
