Hello,

when I'm out of home and I want to login in Windows remotely,usually I use Teamviewer.
I can't use a password to protect my home computer,because if I restart it remotely,it can be no longer used. Btw,I need to use a password to protect my Windows workstation. How can I write my Windows login password remotely ? Thanks.

yeah,but what happens If I restart my home computer remotely ? How can I put my Windows logon password remotely ?

Commented:
What version of Windows are you using? LogMeIn Free is a system service and will take care of your authentication for you.

Two steps for authentication:

1. Login to LogMeIn.com
2. Select desired computer and enter windows authentication

Best,

For VNC and RDP you'll be asked everytime for the username and password (of the computer you're trying to connect to).
Alternatively you can configure the VNC service to show the windows login window, or just configure an admin password/ check this link:

maybe you haven't understood what's the problem...when Windows has been restarted,it asks for a login password. Who can put it,if I can't do it remotely ? If no one do it,I can't use Windows anymore...

Commented:
It's a Windows login correct? LogMeIn will show you the login screen just like you would see if it you were sitting right in front of it. I use it to restart my clients servers all the time, it is great!
the RDP is a native windows service, so obviously it runs as a service and ignores the logon screen...
the same for VNC when it's installed as a service...

Lets get only RDP in consideration:

Once the computer reboots, you are always able to remotely connect and get the login screen to insert your password.

Is this what are you looking for?

yeah,but until my home computer is waiting for someone who put the windows login password,I can't use it remotely,right ?

Commented:
You definitely can, it's a system service and will run when the computer starts so you will be able to login just like you normally would.

Of course you can! This is what I'm trying to tell you...

Think of RDP as a system service (exactly as the logon screen), the RDP server (your computer) starts that service before you get the login screen.

So assuming that:

1. If you reboot the computer in the remote session - you will be still able to reconnect back after the reboot
2. You authenticate to your computer through your windows credentials (username and password used in windows)

Clear?

Commented:
Yep, and you will be able to. LogMeIn will ask you for your windows login password and log you in automatically if you desire.
