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.

We all know the first name that comes up in our minds but they're just WAY overpriced!

If you are like me, an avid remote access repair technician, what would you use / recommend?

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!

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.

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.

I have a group of 25 users on a domain that are using remote desktop access to a common server. They use a program on your server that requires them to use Outlook to send reports, invoices, etc.  

The email addresses they use our Gmail hosted, and some of these users have ridiculous PST files.  What is the easiest way to set up a Outlook 2007 or 2010 profile that does not bring in any data from the Gmail servers.  Essentially would just be using them to send  mail

I need remote access to two computers in my home office for about a month.  I will be traveling with a laptop (Windows 10) and need to remote into the two PCs back in my home location (both of these PCs are Windows 7).  What would be the best method (and most reliable/secure) for me to be able to connect to these two computers.  Your help is appreciated.  Thank you.

Hi,
Does anyone know why a domain user not able to RDP to machine. I have added the person under group " Remote Desktop Users" on the server itself. Everytime i try to login i get message saying ""to Sign in remotely you need the right to sign  in through RDS etc..."

Unless i make user Local Admin on server, it doesnt work. However i dont want to make them Local admin. Just be able to RDP to server.

We have about five remote users that connect from the field using Remote Desktop to be able to access information in designated folders.

These users need to have the ability copy for transfer the files back to the local machines. How would I set this up.

I have two identical servers set up.  The hosts are running hyper V on server 2012 R2, and each host has two virtual machines on it.
The remote access permissions are set identical to allow remote access to the host machines
Host 1 and all 4 virtual machines can be accessed with remote desktop
Host 2 gives an error that the machine is either not available or is not set to be accessed
Host 2 can be accessed with a trial copy of Team Viewer with no problem
Since much of the administration is done off site, it would be good to be able to access both Host 1 and Host 2

Hi Experts,

We have a number of RemoteApps that we licence to clients.

One of our clients cannot connect and they claim our Server is blocking their IP address.
I don't believe we are intentionally blocking any IP addresses.

What log(s) and event text do I need to look for to see connection attempts?

Regards,
Leigh

We use Fortinet in our organization. Our typical setup to allow a user to remote in is to install Forticlient on a laptop with remote desktop and then have them connect. We purchased a Chromebook as a test to see if we could use these for people who want to remote in as they're cheaper than a laptop.

However, the issues we're having is setting up the VPN on the Chromebook as we can't use Forinet because it's only available if you're using the management console and have quite a few Chromebooks on your domain.

Has anyone had any success using Chromebooks for a remote access and if so, can you share in detail how you got it to work?

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
Thanks

Good afternoon

I have a client that has 5 RDP connections. These go to 1 server and 4 individual PC's within the business.
The router has been configured to allow them through using publicipaddress:port (these ports increment by 1 to specify which computer it is going to).

During a recent PCI compliance scan, each of the computers failed as they were using self signed SSL certificates, as well as the router remote access. I need to secure these with SSL certificates from a Certification Authority. My question is as follows:

1. How do you do this easily?
2. Does each computer and the router need it's own SSL certificate purchased from the CA?
3. If I create 1 certificate from a CA using the  public IP address, can this be assigned to each of the devices?

Hi,

When I connect to VPN by Pulse Secure, as soon as the connection gets established, our local lan gets deactivated. Neither our intranet or internet works. A yellow exclamation sign is visible.  Can you please suggest.
Can you please tell where do I find the option in Pulse Secure to allow local lan.

Thanks

I have a client with a Windows 2008 R2 Remote Desktop Services Server (Terminal Server). It has commend to my attention that a user account was compromised allowing an unknown person to gain access the network.

What utility can I use to view hidden accounts, view what accounts that have been given domain admin and or local admin access and discover any root kits or other hidden remote access accounts?

And, what utility can I use to notify and log each time someone logs into the Desktop Services Server or an administrators logs into one of the other servers?
