Remote Desktop take over users session
Posted on 2009-04-22
I am looking for a way to user Remote Desktop to take over a users session or to drop into the users session. I have been using remote assistance for some time now, but I do not always have a user on the other end that can press accept. I have enabled two group policies:
Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Network > Network Connections > Windows Firewall > Domain Profile > Windows Firewall: Allow Remote Desktop Exception
Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Terminal Services > Allow users to connect remotely using Terminal Services
This gets me the login screen to get access to there workstation, but can I some one take over that users session with out logging them out? I want to be able to see exactly what they are working on while they are working on it, just like remote assistance allows you to do or VNC. VNC seems to be too slow, but remote assistance works great.
