Remote Desktop Tools
Note: the term “Remote Desktop Connection” refers to a connection method where only one user console can see the desktop of the logged-in user at any time. To connect in such a way that both local and remote users can view and control the system, use the “Remote Assistance” feature of Windows XP.
Note: If connecting via Remote Desktop from a computer off-campus to a computer on-campus, due to network restrictions, it is necessary to establish a VPN connection to the MS&T VPN server before connecting via Remote Desktop.
These tools take the place of VNC on the Windows XP Unattended Install machines. Remote desktop allows only one user to control the machine at a time. Using remote desktop requires that the user be a member of the Remote Desktop Users or Administrators group. Remote Desktop Users is added the same way that Admin access is granted – by modifying groups on the remote computer
This completes the connection to the remote computer.
