Hi,

I need to connect via rdp to a pc with windows 7 home premium, which i know that version doesn't support rdp. The problem is we could access via rdp this pc until a few days ago.
I found some posts which say that it's possible to do that, via registry.
Could you help on this issue?

Thanks.

Best regards.

Remote desktop incoming to a home version is not possible (while outgoing is possible). What works is remote assistance (RA) a user-initiated call for help. RA uses the rdp protocol, too.
If you would like to remote control an unmanned home premium computer, you should use team viewer or ultra vnc.

If you're willing to consider a product besides RDP, the excellent (and free for personal use) TeamViewer can do the job:
http://www.teamviewer.com/en/index.aspx

It is an extraordinarily good piece of software and works on W7 Home Premium (in fact, on all versions of W8, W7, Vista, and XP). It supports unattended access and file transfers. I think you'll like it. Regards, Joe

Hi,
Thanks for your reply.
For know i have another problem, i've installed ultravnc bu when i try to connect to the pc via ultravnc it gives the following error:
«UltaVNC running as application doesn't have permission to access UAC protected windows. Screen is locked until the remote user unlock this window»
So i only can access to the pc via ultravnc if i have any user logged in.
There is something i have to configure to avoid this?

Best regards.

Why You Should Analyze Threat Actor TTPs

After years of analyzing threat actor behavior, it’s become clear that at any given time there are specific tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) that are particularly prevalent. By analyzing and understanding these TTPs, you can dramatically enhance your security program.

I don't know the answer for UltraVNC (let's hope an UltraVNC expert jumps in), but I can tell you that TeamViewer has an "unattended access" mode, and I don't recollect ever seeing a UAC issue with it. You may set up the unattended access during the initial installation or later on via the Connection menu:

TeamViewer unattended access

UltraVNC can be setup as a service. It's an option during setup. Reinstall it and you'll see that it works then.
Team viewer is considered the better product but would cost money if used commercially, while Ultra VNC wouldn't, that's why I mentioned both.
