No remote administration?

Installed a new 2003 Server. Want to use remote administration, but all i get is a "The computer does not respond". The TS-service is running, and when looking at the configuration, the licensing mode is set to "remote administration mode" and nothing odd in the event viewer.

This is the first server which has done this.

Any hints?

Hi  j2,


Have you ticked  Allow  Remote Connection option?( My Computer -  properties - Remote)

Also, there are no firewalls.
Furthermore, if i install the terminal server role, it works as expected, but this isnt what i want, since i do not want to turn this server into an actual terminal server (with all the licencing that brings). After removing the role, i once again can not use Remote Administration.

Although I believe that What90 has solved your problem, you might also want to dnload the MS doc on TS and RDP Remote Administration from their site..  May prove helpful to you in the future..

The funny thing is (ill check that at the office tomorrow) is that the other servers i have installed had the feature enabled by default.. Tho, the diff is that THIS system had a NIC that wasnt recognized at install time. Could that have any impact? Anyhow, now off to bed.

Your correct, it should be, but it's amazing how these options get deselected.

Let us know.

j2 - It's nice that is is that easy some times.

FE -If luck didn't have anything to do with working (and fixing) in IT - I'd be buggered ;-)

But i have verified it. If the system detects / is able to configure a LAN-connection at install time, the feature seems to be acutomatically enabled.
