Hello experts

I might have the wrong way of thinking but generally ive been lucky enough to have had rd gateway, rd session host and everything on the same box and only needed one of them client sites. For a new site I have an RdGateway / RdWA on one vm and one vm that is our main terminal server connection broker / session host / licensing and the like (Have had it for years and just added the gateway to an existing vm that's web connected where the . When I try to connect through either RdWA or the app with a resource feed it always tries to connect to the gateway box instead of the main terminal server. I though the session host role meant gateway would send everything through to it so im guessing I missed something configuration wise somewhere, or have the wrong way of thinking ? Running 2012 r2 for both vms

Hi

https://community.teamviewer.com/t5/Knowledge-Base/Remote-printing-with-TeamViewer/ta-p/4605

The link above shows how to print document from a remote PC to a local printer via team viewer,,,this doesn't serve my need .

My question how can I print I local document to a remote printer without transferring the file to a remote computer?

Means I have a local laptop that access 3 remote desktop located on the same place.

One desktop is connected to a carpentry machine (special machine for cutting wood) , from the laptop we transfer a drawing file but that desktop in not connected to any printer, therefore can't print

On the same we need to printer that drawing file via another desktop without transferring it .

Is that doable using team viewer ?

OSs are windows 7 for all

Thanks

I have a CentOS 7 (7.3.1611 ) server running Gnome (3.14.2) and using xRDP (0.9.2-12.el7.x86_64) and authenticating via radius to DUO. I RDP (10.2) from Windows 10. This all work fine.

My problem is when the session locks or time out I can’t log back in unless I have a local password set which I don’t want to do. I want the auth to continuously go through radius/Duo.

My questions are:
1.      How or where do I point re-login to radius?
2.      Or when session times out to kill session so they have to re-auth through radius?
3.      How do I extend the session time out?

Thanks.

Could somebody please tell me how to remotely connect to an ESXI Vmware Host (esxi6.5 specifically). I would like the equivalent of RDP ideally?
How to enable and how to connect would be very useful
thanks very much.

Hello experts

I have a 2012 r2 rdp server thats working great but we would like to be able to minimise the amount of steps our end users need to do when using our services from their devices. So we tell them to grab the microsoft remote desktop app which most get right the first time and then they need to add the remote resource url and username and password. We are hoping to somehow supply the remote resource url bit automatically, it seems with the previous versions you could export configuration files but with the new version I haven't been able to locate anything. How are others streamlining this process ? The powers that be have asked if there is a way we can host some sort of file on the web the users click on that makes it easier to setup their devices because we are an educational institute and have users connecting from remote locations and cant see us face to face for us to configure their devices. We have rdweb services installed but it has its limitations but we thought maybe there was some way to leverage it for the configuration side (Our clients are all byod so the app is the medium that works on all devices)

You will probably get more answers if you ask this as a question rather than a post, but there is also somewhat related information in this question: https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/29039362/What-is-Wrong-with-Teamviewer-Alternatives.html

the link above isnt really helpful, "what is wrong with teamviewer"... the answer is that his company IT was blocking it. not TV's fault.

Recently every time I used RDC to access my server SSMS crashed with the following error -

A suggested fix was to install v17 but that has the same problem.

I recently wanted to leave a powershell script running and when I logged in again both Powershell and SSMS crashed. A suggested fix was to repair .Net but doing that made no difference.

I can start them, close the session and open it again and both have the error. What update has Microsoft done to cause this?

I would like to disable this altogether . I have the option set in the .rdp file to displayconnectionbar:i:1 but with that set it still displays for a few seconds when system first makes the connection. I need this to not show up at all as i have the system setup as a Kiosk. So when user turns on the system it go right into the connection and when they log off it restarts the connection without end user knowing they are connected remotely.

Dear Team, we have Server 2008 R2 acting as VPN server with Routing and Remote Access role. However, we suffered a reliability problem when we always have to restart service in order to run VPN smoothly. Sometimes, we even have to restart the Server, so that remote users can log in with their username/password.

We only have MSE antivirus, no any other special.

Can anyone explain please?

Windows 7 Pro.  RDP connection to server outside the network asks for password, then hangs - but one one computer only.  I successfully connected other PC's.  The problem PC connected OK in the past.  From the problem PC, can RDP to other internal PC's and other external PC's.  On the problem PC only, received a certificate error, but installed the certificate.  Permissions on the rdp connection set to Everyone - Full Control.  Have cleared the RDP history from the registry, run CCleaner and regcleaner.  Have tried as regular user, which worked in the past, and also as administrator.  I do not have access to the remote host, nor it's IP address.

Suggestions, please!

I have a Windows 10 machine that loses focus during remote desktop session. Every few seconds, the window i'm working with becomes inactive.

I used to be able to use remopte desktop to get from our school server to the individual PCs. Because of PC lab reconfiguration I reinstalled Windows 7 Pro 32 bit on most of the computers and now I cannot access them. I turned on Remote desktop like I did in the past and changed the power setting to never go to sleep. I also checked the firewall setting and compared them to the settings of PCs that did not get a reinstallation of Windows. They are identical. I checked the services and they are also the same as the PCs I can remote to. What might I be missing? What should I be looking for? Remote access is critical to managing this network and these PCs.

The server is Windows Server 2008 R2.
Thank you!

I tried to start the Routing & Remote Access service on the Windows Server 2012 Standard but it getting failed error code: 8007042a.

"The Routing and Remote Access service on Local Computer started and then stopped. Some services stop automatically if they are not in use by other services or programs"

Below mentioned troubleshooting taken by me to resolve this issue but no success.

1. I have verified the dependency services of role routing & remote access but found all dependency services in running stage.

2. I have re-installed role Remote Access but still facing the same error. (error code: 8007042a).

3. I Took backup of "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\RemoteAccess" and copied the same registry from working server.

4. Merged the copied registry and tried to start the service but it failed to start.

5. Reset the TCP/IP setting on the server.

6. I deleted the below mentioned registry key from the server. (Exported it before, to keep a backup)
      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\RemoteAccess\RouterManagers\Ipv6

7. Rebooted the server multiple times for changes to take effect but no success.


Any suggestion on this?

Regards,
Vikrant Wakchaure...

Hello Experts. I have applied a group policy to top level domain to allow remote access for certain users from our parent company into our servers. it works for all servers except for domain controllers. i tried to add a test user to the 'remote users group' in AD, no success, added the test user to 'backup operations' group as well, still no success. I've attached a pic of the error message that is received. when i enter the user manually in group policy locally on one of the DC's under:  Computer Configuration --> Windows Settings --> Security Settings -->  Local Policies --> User Rights Assignment --->  Allow Logon Through Remote Desktop Services,it authenticates successfully but just gives light blue/greenish screen. please assist in troubleshooting, and thank you in advance.

Hi guys,

I have got a very problematic Windows 7 Ultimate computer which no computers in the network is able to connect to. Please look at the following diagram.
Diagram
When I try to connect from a different computer to it, it asks for a set of credential which i then entered. Next, the remote desktop screen appears (Screen that would normally show its trying to display the login screen), but almost immediately, the screen disappears and nothing happened after.

What is happening here is that:
- All computers are not in a domain but in identical workgroup names.
- Usernames and passwords are identical for all the computers and are stored locally.
- I had created a separate rdpUser account to test that when I try to connect, it uses the credential that is stored in the problematic 7 Ultimate box.
- The Windows 8 computer is configured to allow remote assistance, but is restricted to any remote connection to it.
- Any computer is able to remotely connect to the XP box.
- No computer is able to remotely connect into the 7 Ultimate box.
- The firewall on the 7 Ultimate box has inbound firewall rule configured to allow TCP 3389 remote desktop and remote desktop (RemoteFX - TCP) permitted.
- I had tried to configure a UDP rule and it plays no part in solving the problem. (Inbound and Outbound too)
- The local user account has administrative privilege for rdp, so is the rdp test account.
- I did look at event viewer and it shows that a network…

I'm running a small shop for IT support. I'm currently using Logmein rescue to send a link to my clients and have them click on it. But its costing me $150/month. Do you guys know of any free tools that do the same or that are maybe cheaper like $30 or $50 month? Just trying to keep my overhead down.

We have a client using RDP to connect to the TS last week they reported the RDP connections werent going through,
I attempted to dial on the same way and was booted immediatly.
I have checked RDP prot settings and they are fine, the user is in the allowed RDP users group and we have tested with the firewall off.
No access, I have Teamviewered in.
There is an error message that was displayed to the user
AAD error
This is a terminal server application that is not installed and has no service running and no start up routine, and yet on reboot of the server displays could not connect to AAD server.
If anyone could advise as to how to remove AAD or just force RDP to work I would be greatly appreciative.

Looking for remote access for a client.

They sometimes will travel without their laptop and want to be able to use their clients machine to access their office machine.

I was using Remote desktop with ports forwarded, but do not feel that is secure enough.
I would do a VPN, but that requires a vpn client on the remote machine.

What options do I have that require minimal installation of software on the Remote machine?

They have Windows 2012 (not R2) so I cannot add Essentials experience to remote to their network PCs
