mstsc.exe is the command for Remote Desktop

MSDTC is the Microsoft Distributed Transaction Coordinator. The process is loaded into the system by Microsoft Personal Web Server and Microsoft SQL Server. The service is used to manage transactions across multiple servers.

I'm not sure I understand your question.  Are you asking how to make your sygate firewall icon appear in the Notification Area?

ok when i connect via remote desktop shortcut i connect to my server fine, but it doesnt give any access to sygate for me to use. sygate is running in the background fine but i cant bring the control panel or anything of the program.

A few months ago i found on the internet how to do this.... like i said it done using something like msdtc -something via the run bar......

everything else works fine except for sygate but i know there is a way to do it.....

cheers in advance

sorry i think it may have been mstsc not msdtc but it may have had /console or something behind

That would probably be (look in C:\program files\remote desktop for the exe, or check the shortcut's properties)
mstsc.exe /v:YourServerName /console
It should work as well if you add the /console switch after the server name in the RDP connection window.
