Hi there,

I'm working with a colleague who is connecting to a test Win2k3 server using Remote Desktop.
My question is how do I configure the Remote Desktop connection so I can observe his actions?
I can't see an option in the RDP properties on the server.

thanks,

John

You can only have a RDP session 'in private'..   It does not work like VNC or the XP Assistance Feature...  At least not any way that I know of...  Remember that RDP is actually Terminal Services in Admin mode...

If anyone else has a workaround, I would love to hear it..

So I guess my answer would be no way, no how..  Sorry, cannot be done..  Try Remote Assistance...  or a third party utility like VNC..

you accepted the wrong answer.
Use tsadmin.exe, select the users' session, right click and choose "Remote Control".
