I have SCCM 2007 sp2 installed onto a server 2008 r2 box.  Clients are being installed and options are syncing with the server settings, however when I go to use remote tools, all I can do is view the machine, I cannot control the machine even though Remote Tools is set to Full access.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Is the firewall disabled?
You will have to open the following ports and ensure they are not blocked on the way for remote tools to get them to work:

2701/TCP
2702/TCP
137/TCP

Kind regards

Test it with:
netsh advfirewall set allprofiles state off

Open in new window

Sorry, forgot something:
Observe the RemoteControl.log in %windir%\[system32|syswow64]\ccm\logs at client side.

Please also ensure that in the Remote Tools Client Agent properties, you configured the right setting: " Clients running Windows XP or later Level of access allowed" vs. "Clients running Windows 2000 Level of access allowed".

This tutorial on TechNet worked absolutely fine, I tried it a couple of minutes ago: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb680343.aspx

Kind regards! :-)

Thank you for the quick response.  The firewall is turned off on the client so that should not be the problem.  I also have both settings for Clients set to full control.  Also if you check the Remote Client in control panel it is set to full control.

Here is what the last connection looked like in the log you requested:

Can you please test it with another user? I don't see why it shouldn't work.
You see the desktop, right? (no graphical errors or stuff like that).

It is a little wierd how it is working.  I connect to the machine and I just get a black screen.  Then once you scroll mouse on the client machine or open up an application then you start to see what the client is doing.  I'm not sure what is going wrong, but there are no errors when connecting or anything.  It does this for every user I tried.

Was trying to remote into a machine that was locked and that was the reason for the issues.

Thanks for all your help.
