I need to use Console Mode to connect Windows Server using Remote Desktop Connection.

My server is running software program and coming up some data on server screen. Sometime, I need to have a look the screen remotely.

Using Remote Desktop Connection to connect server, it just create new session. Not to console mode. I found knowlegde base in here about this topic. Someone suggest to use /console command but I tried it doesn't work. It always create new session. I can't see server screen.

Any idea to solve it ?

make a new shortcut on desktop.  paste the following code into the line.  This will work as long as your workstation is not running XP sp3 or higher.  the switch got changed in sp3
%SystemRoot%\system32\mstsc.exe -console

Open in new window

From the run cmd type the following
mstsc -v:serverip /f -console
That will get you onto the console. (serverip can be the name or ip of your server)

Thanks for your response. It's working.  

How about if I am using web browser.  https://serverip/remote

It can't use command line to do that.

Glad i could help.
As far as im aware you cant log onto the console via remote web workspace.
Unless some can tell me differnet?
But why do you need to use web workspace?

Because everything is done between server and firewall setting.

I can use http or https to access the server on Internet. No need to change firewall setting to open terminal service port.
