I'm a developer and I've installed Windows Server 2008 R2 on a box at home. I've set up a user and can connect to my home wireless router. I'm using the box to setup some version control and continuous integration. So I'll only need it on when I'm doing some developing. It won't be running nightly builds, only when I check code in.
I don't have a spare monitor or keyboard so I want to remote in to the server whenever I need to do anything on it. The problem is this: The server doesn't connect to the network until someone has logged in.
How do I set up the wireless so that when the machine is turned on?
It connects to the wireless network so I can remote in and use the other services. The only work around I have is not setting any password so the user logs in automatically. Then I can remote in no problem. This is less than ideal.
I'm not a server admin, so forgive me if there is a simple solution that I haven't found via Google.
I'm not sure I made myself clear.
The server needs to connect to a home wireless network with a key. This only happens once a user is logged on. Ineed it to happen when the pc is turned on and no user is logged in yet.
