I am currently trying to use Remote Desktop on a Windows 7 Pro PC whose screen is currently broken from my old Windows XP laptop. However, before the screen broke, remote connection was turned off on both machines.
After searching all evening, I tried to remotly enable Remote Desktop using PsExec, but it does not seem to be willing to connect to my remote machine and says "Access Denied" although I have spectified the right login/pass information explicitly. The command I am trying to run looks like this:
psexec.exe -u MACHINE_NAME\ADMIN_LOGIN -p ADMIN_PASSWORD \\MACHINE_NAME cmd.exe
I then checked with Wireshark what login got sent, I noticed it was the one from my XP laptop, not the credentials I set with the above command, and immediatly after I received an "invalid login" packet.
Is it even possible to do what I am trying to do?
(Note that I still have physical access to the screenless machine and can try to use the command line, but without visual feedback, it's hard to tell if the action was successful or not, and I don't have another win7 machine to see what I should input)
EDIT: After searching some more, I found this thread that gave me a solution to the wrong credentials issue. However, I still can't connect to my remote machine. The error I see from Wireshark traces is that I don't have the right to access the folder
This is a bit odd since the account I'm logging with is an admin account on the remote machine...
