Xrdp.org is a open source terminal server for Linux, that can give multiple users a X desktop session on a server.

Apparently this can be triggered by using mRemote / Remote Desktop Connection Manager (RCDMan 2.2) or similar software. The fix is to set TaskOffload = Disabled using Set-NetOffloadGlobalSetting Source: http://www.itnotes.eu/?p=1193

The event log of the RD server will list the IP address of the connection. If you're using any sort of proxy server such as Remote Desktop Gateway, you will likely have to correlate log entries between the RD server and the proxy/Gateway to get the user's true IP address.

It is not possible to change the window color when using the basic theme. I don't remember where I read this (it's been a long time since I posted this), but Microsoft did this on purpose because changing colors is a "feature" you have to pay for in some developing countries. The basic theme is the only one supported in the Windows Starter and Home Basic ...

As John Cave said, you could set up a remote desktop gateway. With this, you specify your connection with the internal name of the machine, and then use the RD Gateway server under the gateway settings of the connection. Alternatively, if you're just looking at a couple of machines, you could use port 3389 for C, and then a different port number for D.

Just to be different, Microsoft calls this an "RDP gateway", not a proxy server. I found this guide to setting one up here.

Ah, same thing here. I solved by disabling public access to RDP, allowing only private network connections to the server. Which is, by the way, recommended as soon as you get access to your brand new server.

It worked by specifying the port number along with the IP Address: vncviewer IPAddress:5901

If you're not looking for advanced printing functions, try installing the printer locally with the simplest driver that comes pre-installed, HP Deskjet 600 for example, but make sure your server has the same driver pre-installed.

One easy solution is to enumerate the instances of EXPLORER.EXE running on the remote host. Then just pull the owning user. Example PS command: Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_Process -Filter "Name='explorer.exe'" -ComputerName "REMOTECOMPUTER" | ForEach-Object{ "{0}\{1}" -f $_.GetOwner().Domain, $_.GetOwner().User }

The path of least resistance would be to uninstall the Remote Desktop service role. If you are not using the server as a session host, you could do with the 2 administrative sessions. No additional licensing or configuration needed.

Long shot... I know this is NTLM, but there are some aspects of NTLM that might be factoring in time skew (There's this: http://superuser.com/questions/395966/how-inaccurate-must-the-clocks-time-be-for-ntlm-requests-to-be-denied-due-to-th which leads to this: http://support.microsoft.com/en-au/kb/976918). Might want to check the clocks.

You are probably using a central group policy store. Copy the contents of C:\Windows\Policy Definitions from the newest / most up-to-date server and place them in SYSVOL\domain\policies\PolicyDefinitions. This ensures that whenever you use the group policy management console it will be reading from the same central set of ADMX policy templates. When you ...

I don't think it can be done with windows 2012. I know in the past I have used either the /console or /admin switches because of the following reasons: Look at the console screen to see a popup that a service failed or the system or the system is running low on virtual memory some software only would install if it is on the Console (ID=0) But it ...

Dameware Mini Remote Control. SWEET little program. Allows access to the 'console' session, the login screen, the boot process (if you use Intel AMT) and also allows to switch to existing RDP sessions as well. Multiple connection methods: MRC (their ridiculously fast proprietary solution) RDP, VNC, intel AMT (vPro). Multiple authentication methods ...

I may misunderstand, but this is fairly easy. You should remote to the server using your account, on whatever session you want. Then, from command prompt (on the remote server) or PS, enter: mstsc /shadow:3 /noConsentPrompt Don't specify a server name, you're on the server that has the session you'd like to shadow. You will have to enable shadowing in GP ...
