You don't have a Administrative User in MS-DOS Operating System.

You must be using some version of Windows, please specify the same in the Zones.
Also, when you talk about remote connection, what software are you using for VPN?

Please clarify!

In order to add a user with Admin powers from command line please use the following commands:

1. Create a New User
NET USER username {password | *} /ADD 

Open in new window

NET USER abc password /ADD 

Open in new window

2. Add user to Local Administrators Group

NET LOCALGROUP groupname username /ADD 

Open in new window

e.g. with user abc we created above.
NET LOCALGROUP Administrators abc /ADD

Open in new window
