I would like some parental control software that will limit the amount of time that a user spends on games (especially Fortnite) and TV.  I need software that does not allow some games to slip through the net. I would also like to be able to view the computer screens on out network without the users being aware. Maybe that could be achieved with a remote access software but the ones that I have used have always notified the user of the remote PC that their PC is being viewed.
Which software would be the best? Which software would achieve these minimum requirements for the least amount of money?
Thank you

Rowby Goren Makes an Impact on Screen and Online

Learn about longtime user Rowby Goren and his great contributions to the site. We explore his method for posing questions that are likely to yield a solution, and take a look at how his career transformed from a Hollywood writer to a website entrepreneur.

We have a number of users that work remotely. Lately, they have been experiencing a large lag when trying to run in house developed .aspx pages.

This appears in multiple ways: 1) taking multiple seconds for letters to appear when typing and 2) taking lots of time for data in a dropdown list to appear.

I have tried all of the normal fixes with no luck. Examples:

-Problem happens in different web browsers.
-Problem happens when the remote users are in the office connected via cable or when they are using WiFi remotely.
-All other users are having no problems with the application.

Any other suggestions?

Hi, Does anyone know an inexpensive to Citrix's GoToMyPC?  This excellent product has increased fourfold in th3e last month!  I used to have a subscription for $119/year which suddenly jumped to somthing like $800/year which they will discount to about $400/year.  Rather steep!  So if someone knows of a more cost effective alternative, I would be interested!
Thanks.

Hello,

I need to lower the Internet Explorer zone settings for Internet as many users are finding it difficult to download items from some websites, mainly government sites where the work with VAT and other depositions.

So, I made one simple change to the default domain GPO which was

User config<policies<administrative templates<windows components<internet explorer<internet control panel<security page<
then enabled Internet Zone Template and set it to Medium.


However when the policy became applied the Internet zone was blocked at Medium-high even though I specified Medium. Now I can't remove this, I reset the Internet Zone Template back to Not Configured, even tried Disabled but now all the suers are stuck on medium High, as if the policy is still being applied.


If it makes any difference the users are on a RDS server.

Please help!


Thanks very much.

For more than one year we are now running an RDS environment on Server 2012 R2, including RD Gateway for external access. The past few days some users had randomly issues when they tried to start a shared desktop from external. Error message see RDS1.png. Without any changes, a few minutes later the access is working fine. On the RD Gateway server I found an error which says that the client doesn't meet the requirements and will not be authorized (see RDS2.png). It is really weird as it's only sometimes this happens and it seems this happens only with clients which are not joined to our domain. Any idea what the reason could be?

accidentally installed the DC role and promoted it on our Terminal server.
demoted and removed the role. now the Remote Desktop Management service will not start.

what would be the steps to resolve this? i'd prefer NOT removing the role and reinstalling as there are many remoteapp and other configs setup.

alternatively i have a backup i can restore from before the screw-up, however i'm not sure if that's advisable due to the promotion?

I am setting up a 2016 RDS server hosting a few apps and want to change the "Remote computer" name from the actual server name to something more generic like rds.domain.com. I have attached a pic that shows what I want to change.  I figured out where to change the Gateway server name, but not the remote computer name.  Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.2016 RemoteApp

Hello,

Recently installed 20 2016 RDS user CALs and since then nobody has permission to download any files from the internet, whether from online banking or other government sites. Error states the security settings do not allow it.  Before installing the CALs the users were working in grace period and all was fine.

If I use RD Licensing Diagnoser it says at the top
Licenses are not available for this Remote Desktop Session Host server and RD licensing diagnoser has identified licensing problems for the RD Session host server.

The Remote Desktop Session Host Server is in Per User licensing mode and No Redirector mode, but license server ……. does not have any installed licenses with the following attributes: Product Version:Windows Server 2016Licensing mode.

Looking at the licensing server info it says
Version                           Windows Server 2016
………………..
……………
The license server has the following licenses installed and available

RDS Per User CAL      Windows Server 2016     20 installed     0 available


I have already checked in the registry that the value 4 is assigned to HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server\RCM\Licensing Core\LicensingMode

Also the name of the licensing and host server is correct (just one machine).

I have been looking for abut 2 hours now and am not finding anything helpful.

Please help!

Thank you

We have set up several Windows Server Essentials 2012/R2 servers for remote web access (Anywhere Access) with the free Microsoft remote web access domain name and certificate (i.e., company.remotewebaccess.com).  We are now receiving alerts on the server indicating that the remote access certificate is about to expire and needs to be "renewed with your Certification Authority."  Could you please let me know the simplest, most efficient way to renew the Microsoft remotewebaccess.com certificate we originally set up?

If that cannot be done, what is the most straightforward way to resolve this problem and keep Anywhere Access working?

Security certificates are not something I am very familiar/experienced with,unfortunately.

Thanks very much.

CompTIA Network+

Prepare for the CompTIA Network+ exam by learning how to troubleshoot, configure, and manage both wired and wireless networks.

We have an MS Access application that runs on a remote server.  Each user has their own RDP login, which takes them straight to the application.  When they leave the application, they are logged off.  

The issue is that when we set up a new user, we need to get MS Remote Desktop Connection up and running, get them to add the necessary credentials and eventually save a shortcut onto the desktop.  Whilst this is fine for technical people - it's not ideal (especially when we scale up the users).

I want to create a C# / .Net application that will allow us to set up and run the RDP side of things - from a single setup.exe installation, with and configuration file (containing login credentials etc.), to the management of the RDP session.  

I would prefer not to use to MS Remote Desktop Connection in a wrapper and was wondering if there was anything out there that would allow us to run RDP session from within a .Net application?

Server 2008, 4 users connect via Remote Desktop and run a piece of accounting software.  3 users have run it no problem for the past 5 years.  Added a new user, same group membership as others.  Whenever user #4 tries to run the accounting software, she is presented with an administrator login box in order to be allowed to run the software.

I can find no differences between the users.  Fundamentally, what do I look for in order to eliminate this administrator prompt?

How to set up two RDS servers on the same subnet on Windows 2012 R2.

I configured a second RDS server with the exact same configuration as the first one and restarted both servers, the first one dropped all settings after restarting it and users weren't able to log in.  Only one connection broker is allowed across multiple RDS servers?

Made changes to GPO yesterday, now cannot log in through RDP.  Get the message
"Other User"
To sign in remotely , you need the right to sign in though RDP Services.  By default , member's of the RDP Users Group have this right.  If the group you're in doesn't have this right, or if the right have been removed from the Remote Desktop Users Group, you need to be granted manually.

I've looked at Computer Config >> Windows Settings >> Security Settings >> User Rights Assignment >> 
"Allow log on through RDP Services"
"Deny access to this computer from the network"
"Deny log on through RDP Services"

I'm fairly certain i didn't change any other setting that would cause this,  not what the fix is.

Remote desktop auto start session on VMHorizon DASS

Hello all-

I am working on setting up Remote Desktop Services for use by some of my remote users. The VMhorizon dass station are all windows server 2008, joined to the domain. The remote users will login to the Dass workstation using their domain login, then automatically launch a  RDP session to the workstation assign in their office.
Is there a way that when the user logs into the local workstation, it will start the RDP session right away and pass their username/password through. any help would greatly appreciated.


Thanks

I am running approximately 50 users with 23 remote users logging into one -- soon to be 2 Parallels servers.  The new server is 2016.  My questions are:  I assume I only need 23 RDS licenses.  They say they aren't concurrent so do I get user or device RDS licenses?   The notes from Technet below are unclear.  

From Technet:  If you choose Per User RDS CALs, the licenses are for specific users.  If you choose Per Device RDS CALs, the licenses are for specific devices.

NOTE: RDS Licensing is not concurrent.  What this means is that if you purchase 15 RDS CALs they are for 15 specific users, not "any" 15 users at a given moment in time, which is how it would be under a concurrent scheme.  For tracking purposes, a Per User CAL is issued to a user for 60 days.

A user who has a Per User RDS CAL can access as many RDSH/TS servers as they want from as many different client devices as they choose and they are covered as far as RDS CAL requirements are concerned.  They also need to have a Windows CAL in addition to their RDS CAL.

-TPAlso, my supplier says I buy 2019 licenses and downgrade.

Trying to rid ourselves of the RDP Security Warnings when connecting to load balanced Hyper V Failover RDS Cluster.
"The identity of the remote computer cannot be verified."
"The certificate is not from a trusted certifying authority"
And we are using round robin DNS so sometimes you will get a second occurrence of the above message but from a different server.

I have a load balanced 2012 RDS host farm with two collections (one to farm1 for security Group x and one to farm2 for security group y) with two 2016 HA Connection Brokers/Licensing servers. No gateway server. Typical RDP is used to connect from PC one the two farms. The farms are internal - meaning no outside public access. The PC/devices that will RDP to the farm connect through site to site VPN tunnels and CISCO AnyConnect Agents but are not a part of the domain the farms reside in. The internal domain the farms are on for example is domain.net. The DNS entry for farm1 say is farm1.domain.net and for farm2 is - ready?...... farm2.domain.net

That is what end users will RDP to with farm1.domain.net entered in their internal DNS to round robin resolve to the hosts in that farm and same thing for users for farm2.

I see a lot of walk through on certs but since this isn't externally accessible but the clients are not on the same domain the farms are on - not sure how to handle.

Hello,

When you open the Microsoft RDP application, type in the PC/server details and click connect you are then presented with the credentials window. If you leave this credentials window open for over 10 minutes or so is it normal for the application to produce an error when eventually attempting to sign in? I usually get "An internal error has occurred" or "The two computers could not connect in the amount of time allotted".

This may sound like a strange one but this is why this is an issue for us.

We run a script set via group policy that upon PC boot up it auto signs into a generic local user account and then pops up the RDP client credentials window. This credentials window sometimes gets left open for a while as users go grab a morning coffee, go on lunch etc. When they come back to sign in it takes two attempts to sign into the remote server.

Thanks,

Adam.

MY SYSTEM
(1) Desktop running Windows 7 Pro
(2) Laptop running Windows 8.1, only 20GB hard drive.

BACKGROUND
On machine (1), I want to install a Virtual Machine that runs Linux.
On that Linux virtual machine I will be installing ROS and running simulations in Gazebo.

I want to install software on both machines so that machine (2), the laptop, can fully control machine (1).
The two machines may not always be on the same WiFi network. The laptop will at times need to access the desktop machine over the internet.
I need to make sure the connection is secure and that no one else can access either machine without my authorization.
I am using this for personal use, non-commercial.

QUESTION
Please recommend software that runs over the internet that will allow me to fully control the desktop machine (1) from the laptop machine (2).
Is there any free software that I can use?
Will Teamviewer allow this?
