I have a WinXP hyper-v virtual machine running on a Windows Server 2008 R2 somewhere in a datacenter. I do some remote development on this machine and I would like to do so using the complete screen estate of my desktop monitor.
I can do that using RDP.
But, for a while now, some of my virtual machines have been getting hammered by brute force RDP password guessing attacks that make them really slow to the point of becoming unusable. Note that I have already tried using programs like RdpGuard, but it fails to do its job on my VMs for some unknown reason that their customer support can't identify. So I have been thinking about disabling RDP (or blocking the RDP port) and using TeamViewer instead.
However, I can't figure out how to connect to the VM with TeamViewer with a full screen resolution of 1920x1200 (my desktop monitor resolution). It seems that TeamViewer can only use the resolutions offered by the graphics adapter of the VM (and on hyper-v that seems to be 1600x1200? Why oh why?).
- Is it possible to install some other (3rd party?) virtual display driver that supports 1920x1200?
- Is there a teamviewer setting that I am missing? If not, what is the reason that TeamViewer cannot do the same thing as the RDP client?
I am grateful for any hints. After all, all I want to do is some peaceful remote development sigh.
