XPe RDP client to terminal services?


I have XPe thin clients connected to 2k3 TS service server from remote locations&I create an RDP client with all the settings and put it in the startup folder for the users but it times out when none is using the thin client what is the best way to keep the connection live all the time?

On your TS:

start > run > tscc.msc

Connections > RDP-TCP (right click -> properties) > Sessions

Check that your settings here. "Idel session limit" should in your case be set to "never".

No everything is unchecked there I have a bat script on the thin client to loop terminal server so users can always see the logon screen&is this the best way to do it?

Tick the override user setting to be sure that the client don't have set disconnect when idel for x hours.

Your bat script don't sound like "best practice". Can you post the code?

if exist "c:\documents and settings\user\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\." echo y|del "c:\documents and settings\user\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\."
copy GHTS.* "C:\Documents and Settings\User\Desktop"
copy GHTS*.BAT "C:\Documents and Settings\User\Start Menu\Programs\Startup"
copy GHTS.* "c:\documents and settings\Administrator\desktop"

I would do this on the TS:

Tick "override user settings" -> "end a disconnected session" -> 2 hours.

Tick "override user settings" -> "active session limit" -> never and "idle session limit" -> 8 hours

Tick "override user settings when session limit....."

Okay I may modify the scrip for the thin client not to loop you think?

That loop don't look too good.

Have I understood you correct:

1. When a user have connected with RDP to a TS and is not using it, the connection disconnects?

2. You have a script that runs in a loop just to show the users the login screen?


I'm away until monday, so I'll check back to you then.
