RDP ActiveX Control

Is there a VB.NET Remote Desktop ActiveX Control that can be used to design custom RPD applications? Are there code snippets anywhere to assist a novice in finding solutions?

If you install Remote Desktop Web Connection on the server, visiting the http://servername/tsweb page will download an ActiveX RDP control to your computer that you may be able to script from either within an application or within a webbrowser control host.

Kyanar,

Thank you for your comment. Now will the script allow me to connect to my computer or another computer to connect to me? Also, will I be able to see the other computer's desktop, or will they be able to see mine? Or, does it depend on the script written? Thank you for your contribution and time to answer the first time. It is well appreciated.

Hi Michael,

The web connection software is installed on a server - it does not necessarily have to have remote desktop enabled.  It can be a Windows XP Pro machine if you have no 2003 servers handy.  This simply installs a web page and the ActiveX control which will be downloaded to the machine you visit the page with.  Once it is downloaded, the ActiveX control will allow you to connect to other machines' desktops which have RDP enabled.

Kind Regards,

Haha, it seems I'm the only one that responded... I'm not sure how to proceed really, I attempted to help this fellow and I THINK it answered his question, but I'm not entirely sure as he was asking for something he could script in a custom app rather than an ActiveX control he can script from a webpage.  From knowledge, that would work however.
