I'm using Ammyy Admin. I've set all permisions. However once connected I receive "Remote desktop is unavailable" message. Why and how to fix this?

upd if I have windows rdp connected then I'm able to use ammyy admin rdp. But once i disconnect windows rdp, ammyy admin rdp is also disconnected. This is strange and makes ammyy admin useless (in my configuration). I need ammyy admin rdp to work even if windows rdp is not connected.

  • This happens when remote server program is closed ammyy that is.
  • Check firewall settings on 3d party antivirus or firewall's
  • If you are running windows(Vista,7,8) then try running as administrators right

What kind of os are u running | Are u using any current antivirus if so which one => write about both system's remote, and the client side – Homer Simpsons Jul 8 '13 at 17:25
windows server 2008 r2 on server side and windows 8 pro + windows defender on client side. After all I've used another solution so this question is probably not important anymore.. – javapowered Jul 8 '13 at 17:39
