Hi experts,

My network consists of all Lenovo M91p's and Win 7 Pro. Server is a Dell 2900 Edge with SBS 2008. There was a time when I could RDP across the network and the window which would show the remote desktop would be the same size of the computer being accessed.

The strange thing is, when I remote from my home computer to any computer on the network, I get the full screen.

Thanks.

Bert

More than likely, the setting on your RDC client at home is configured to use "Full Screen":

RDC Client Connection
Slide it down to the actual size you want it to be.

Oh wait... you're accessing these via Remote Web Access!

On SBS 2008 it will only display in full screen unless you tweak the screen size limits.

No you were right the first time. Thanks, works perfectly. I guess the title of the question should have been, "How stupid am I?"

Of course, I'm guessing the resolution goes down some, but I can't really tell.

I do get full screen from home on RWA. Which is good. But, I also get full screen using RDP, which I do use. Evidently, it was set to full screen in the options by default. I was just comparing the fact that I got full screen from home with not full screen at the office.

Thanks again.

If you connect to a lot of  machines remotely via RDP, I might suggest that you try an app that I use and really like called RoyalTS .  At about $35.00 its a great value as it manages all your connections, credentials, etc. and opens them up in a tabbed-style format so you can have a few open and easily switch between them.
