Recently, the HR Department wanted me to prevent employees from being able to check their business email through OWA, as this (I guess) poses issues about overtime pay and employees accessing their business emails.  My question, is what is the best method to not allow access to business emails after hours?  I know that there are login settings that effect a user's time and day for logging onto the network, but not certain it that effects access to business emails as well.

Description: We have a Java app configured to let uses run it from a server on one of our servers on our network via RDS. The issue is that the Java app does not have a built-in timeout, So the network admins set a timeout on the server for the users sessions.

Problem:  The server timeout sessions do timeout, but the java app running in a window does not report mouse and keystroke activity back to the remote server, and when the time-out expires your session  is just gone.
Usually mid something important !

Question: Is there someway to configure either the java session or the RDS session to report activity so that the app behaves like a windows developed application ?

Thanks, any help is appreciated.

Currently we have a client that has the following environment:
>> Server 2012 r2 which has all of the remote desktop service roles
>> 2 x server 2012 r2 session hosts

Users use thin clients, to then RDP onto session hosts.
However now on a daily basis, when users first login, 30MINS on the dot their session is disconnected.

We have scoured the logs, and cannot see any reason why this is happening.
One path we were going down was background processing of printers, or group policy updates.

However the disconnects are random, but they always happen after the user has logged into the server for 30mins

The above image shows members of a Resource Group 'WEB9'.

I want to remove the classic VM 'web9' from the resource group. So I click the web9 VM and choose Resource group (change).


However both VM's must be moved together - why is this?  Why must these related VM stay in the same resource group? How are they related? etc

Hi all,
This is a bit of a wild ask, but just in case somewhere here has seen this error and can help, as zscaler themselves is not providing a timely answer.

We use the zscaler ZPA private access client to allow VPN like access back to our corporate network.
The ZPA client is on laptops and will allow access from external to all apps that we have defined as being allowed on the internal corporate network.
That works great, EXCEPT for DFS file shares.
Windows DFS just doesnt work at all.
Normal UNC fileshares work fine. No problems with UNC.
But as soon as users try to access DFS file shares, there is no access. The request fails on the laptop.

We have contacted zscaler and have an open job with them, but this is taking weeks to resolve.
So long that we are looking at dropping ZPA entirely and go with something we know works, like Microsoft Direct Access.

Moving all the remote users to UNC file shares isnt an option, as the file sharing environment is complex and the amount of manual work needed for a workaround of UNC paths is unacceptable.

I have a setup with 2 Checkpoint gateways (appliances) in a cluster and a virtual management. I have tried the below both with R77.30 and after upgrading to R80.10 with the same result.

I want to enable the https inspection blad. I have licenses and everything. My computers trusts an internal PKI root CA certificate and I have issued an issuing certificate to the gateways without any issues.

When I activate the https blade everything around https on the clients start to behave strange. It is very confusing. The moment I turn the blade off again everything works as a charm.

I am fully aware that https inspection takes a lot of fine tuning but I haven´t come to that stage yet. Right now, even when I have created a https decryption policy that bypasses *everything* the clients have issues.

In an earlier stage I created a decryption policy only to decrypt traffic from one test-client but the users started to scream instantly. And now I am at a stage where the configuration looks like no https should ever be touched but enabling the blade still breaks user traffic.

As I said above, this is tried both on R77.30 and R80.10.

One thing I have noticed is that the trusted root cert list seems a bit old. The newest trusted root cert is issued 2010! However, the dialogue below the cert list where an automatic update of certs should take place is empty. There never shows up any new trusted root certificates.

At one place in the gui there is a dialoge with three …

what special licensing is required to allow users to use Remote Access Desktop sessions to their office PCs via VPN or portal?  if MS Office is licensed on the office desktop, is there additional licensing required to access that same installation remotely?  after discussing with colleagues, i hear varying answers...  some say a Software Assurance subscription is required for each seat, and others say we simply need RDS CALs...  does anyone know the licensing implications, if any?

We use SCCM 2012 to remote our user computers.
RDP works on all computers but Remote Control only works on some ones.
I check some of these failing computers and SCCM client is installed and the Remote Control setting enable.
If I run "Msiexec /i Client.msi SMSFULLREMOTETOOLS=1" this fix the problem.  Apparently the Remote Tool component is missing in these computers.
Is it a way to fix this problem remotely?

We have a Windows server 2012 for a small office of 5 users. There is also a retail store as part of the office,  that uses a POS system. We are trying to setup the ability to use gift cards, and for some reason the POS company/tech (that is handling the setup) needs to make it so Remote web access is turned on so they can access the server by browser/IP address, something having to do with setting up gift cards for the retail store. I'm being told from the POS company, that setting up remote web access on the server is only for internal use, and the server will not be accessed remotely. As it is now, if you type the server IP into the browser, you get a message saying "Remote Web Access is turned off - To turn on remote web access..." - So, if I run thru the steps of setting up "remote web access", and its looking for me to purchase/install a certificate, which as far as I knew was related to accessing the server from outside of the office, which isnt needed in this scenario. Are certificates used internally as well? Does anyone have experience in setting this up? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, I have a 2012R2 server with multiple users that connect via remote desktop. Some of the custom applications I'm developing look superior with font smoothing / clear type enabled. Most clients connecting have this enabled on their local machines so the remote desktop enables it automatically for them. Some users do not have it enabled on their machine so their remote desktop doesn't enable it. I know you can set it in RDC but we're using various RDP clients to connect and 1) don't want to have to configure it manually on RDP clients and 2) don't want to have to enable it manually on client pc's

So can anybody advise how to force the server to enable font smoothing / clear type for all remote connections, eg via GPO.

Thanks

Hi Experts,

I am using below C# code to remotely login to a machine in domain say D2 from my local machine in domain D1. When i use MSTSC and pass correct credentials, I am able to get into. But using below code, I get inner exception "Access Denied" and parent exception as  "Could not connect to remote machine". I am able to ping remote machine from my machine and also ensured that remote registry servcie is up and running on remote machine.The accounts are different for my local and remote machine. What am i missing? If its access of local machine or local account on remote, what exact steps need to be followed to get it done.

I just started helping at an office where they have a server with esxi 6.0 setup.

They have several servers and workstations VMs setup.

They use windows RDP to access the VMs

Things seem to work ok but also seem a bit slow on occasion.

What can I look for to fine tune the install??

Is there a better remote access solution to use that may work better??

In the old 2003 terminal servers, I remember there are T/S Manager and T/S Licensing where you can enter the CAL licensing and manage if you have sufficient licenses or not. But now on 2012R2, I don't see them. I remember there is a change between the versions. Can you educate me please?

After upgrading my security certificate i am unable to log into the server using Remote Desktop. It seems that the certificate upgrade did not go well using the "Anywhere Access" feature of Server 2012 R2 Essentials. I have tried everything that i know to fix it and not luck. I am now being asked for a PFX file, but the certificate providers doesn't provide those. I am not sure what else to do.

I open my PC then i connect to RDP (i have no Administrator rights,i can't install softs or modify registry,policies etc),the session goes IDLE if i don't have activity for 12 minutes and then after 5 min logs off my session.  and my soft stops to run.I heard that it works with ''MOVE MOUSE'' and it really works if i connect to rdp from my pc , but..... I don't like that because we still have to shut down the computer, right?so i thought to open another rdp where i have administrator rights and i am logging in to the other RDP (this is the problem idle rdp),the problem is that after 12 minutes i receive the message:
Your Remote Desktop session ended becouse the remote computer didn't receive any input form you.

Open in new window

,i tried to run MOVE MOOUSE on both but dones't work, any idea?
thanx!
