What you can do is configure RDP setting (mstsc) to send the keyboard shortcuts to local computer OR Use RDP with "Smart Sizing" To Send windows keyboard Shortcuts to Local Computer: Open mstsc > click on "Show Options" button > Switch to "Local Resources" tab > Change "Apply Windows Key Combinations" to "On this computer" But this will push all the ...

When connected, left click at the top-left of your Remote connection, then choose smart sizing, then the connection would try to fix the Remote connection Window. And if you would like to make it full screen, maximize it. For the icons within the remote desktop, you might need to configure the resolution within the connection. enter image description here

The PsExec tool may be a good idea, we may use it to exe file remotely. Please refer to the link: PsExec v2.11

Create a service which runs the exe using sc on the command line of the remote server. Then you can use the Services Management Console to connect to the remote server and start your service. sc create service_name binpath=C:\path\to\binary [option1] [option2] [optionN]

This is a known issue with most programs that "interact with the session". When a RDP session is disconnected from the session "shuts down" and anything that would interact with the UI no longer works. If you minimized your RDP session you would likely see it there too. The only way around this I know of is not to use RDP and see if you can get something ...

This can be resolved by disabling local audio through MSTSC settings window. This would be related to an audio issue - the correlation with the examples in the question being that they all generate a windows sound effect. Whenever the host machine plays any sound, the RDP client seems to crash. While this is likely to resolve the issue - unsure what the root ...

I was able to accomplish this with TaskScheduler and Windows Event Viewer logging. You will need 2 batch scripts. One to disable the checkbox to require password on screensaver unlock and another to re-enable it when your RDP session is over. Disable script: reg add "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop" /f /v ScreenSaverIsSecure /t REG_SZ /d 0 ...

As I continued to do research, I found this which informed me correctly that disabling nVidia's Shadow Play fixed the issue. (so far)

No, there cannot be such an option. Remote Desktop is a communication protocol between a server (e.g. a machine running Windows) and a client (e.g. a machine running Linux). Since a single computer can only run a single OS at a time, it can be either a client or a server, not both. Of course, you can run Windows 10 in a VM on Linux, set up a network ...

In a disk partitioned setup there is no way to do that, simply because Windows cannot run at the same time as GNU/Linux. Virtual machine is the way to go in my opinion (be it VMware, Virtualbox or some other software).

I solved a similar problem when trying to connect via RDP from my Windows 10 home PC to my office PC using putty.exe as a port forwarding mechanism via a Linux gateway machine (similar to using a VPN), I got the same error message and realized the mistake I was making. I was using a command line in the putty.exe shortcut similar to this: "C:\Program ...

Windows 10 Home does not have an RDP server, only client. The RDP server is not part of the home license.

I've encountered the same symptoms when the inbound and outbound traffic was being routed via different routes. As an example say you had a computer called A-RDP running an RDP server, and a pair of routers R and G. Router G is the gateway to the internet. Router R is a router behind gateway G. If server A-RDP has a default gateway of router R, but the port ...

If it is a windows client OS (like XP/Vista/7/8/8.1/10) computer that you are connecting to, you will take control of their computer and their session will go in to the background and they will see a locked screen, and that you are logged in. They can simply log back in to their own session, which will disconnect you. It's like the switch users process, none ...

Haswell and later CPUs can be damaged by Prime 95, if run for long periods of time. Combine this with the maximum overclock that you can get, and hardware damage could occur. From Raja@Asus link Praz nailed it really. The newer versions of Prime load in a way that they are > only safe to run at near stock settings. The server processors actually ...

There is no risk of physical hardware damage by allowing someone remote access to a computer. At most, someone could corrupt the OS so bad that you'd have to reload it. But it sounds like you're prepared for that. The absolute worst that anybody could do is crap it up with some nasty viruses. If you're going to allow the public to use it, I would ...

Old topic, but Chrome has a remote desktop plugin to do that. You also have HTML5 based solutions like Guacamole for Linux or Myrtille for Windows.

If the VNC server and the ssh server are the same, then use a destination of 127.0.0.1 instead of the hostname. Also, make sure that the tunnel is a "local" tunnel and not "remote" or "dynamic". Also, if your test confirms port 5901 works, then you should use the same port in your tunnel, probably for both source and destination.

I resolved a similar problem. I am using Windows 10 and RDPing into a Linux box. Setting my RDP to full screen mode and having the session maximized did not prevent horizontal and vertical scroll bars from appearing. To get rid of these bars, I saved my RDP connection settings by pressing Save As... on the first tab of the configuration. Then, I opened ...

Enclose the IPv6 address in square brackets. So for IPv6 address fd94:8414:eef6:325d::c0a8:1302 and port 45001, you would use [fd94:8414:eef6:325d::c0a8:1302]:45001 Source:

Teamviewer is probably the best option, certainly easiest. If you're using chrome you could use chrome's remote desktop app Install guide: https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/1649523?hl=en-GB

Have you considered using Teamviewer? https://www.teamviewer.com/en/download/linux/ It's free for personal use and can work through firewalls.... After that there are more complex solutions (http://www.tightvnc.com/download.php) however they will require either access to the router and port forwarding or ability to configure over SSH which may be a bit ...

I tried by just deactivating transparencies, and it is not doing the issue anymore! So in my case, it was transparencies in windows that would make RDP stop rendering the screen properly on a resize... The option is at the same place as Desktop Composition in Windows 7.

The general syntax (as shown in reg add /?) is: reg add <key> [/v <value>] [/t <type>] [/d <data>] So your .reg file corresponds to: reg add HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\CredentialsDelegation /v AllowSavedCredentialsWhenNTLMOnly /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00000001 reg add ...

The Microsoft tool PsExec is the solution to this problem. It uses RPC to control remote computers, which is allowed by default for public networks by the Windows Firewall. Once you have PsExec set up, use the command psexec \\SERVER_IP_ADDRESS -user SOME_ADMIN_ACCOUNT powershell "Get-NetConnectionProfile" to find the InterfaceIndex of the network ...

Hosted Desktop: Typically provided via MS RDP or Citrix XenApp into either a managed dedicated server farm or managed multi-tenanted server farm. Most providers have multiple servers and replication so they can continue to provide service in the event of Server/Hardware/DC failure. Also providers will take care of backups, installing software, patching, ...

Since you want to run Windows based Application on Cloud, you can choose Windows Azure or Providers who supports Windows OSes ( Rackspace, Liquidweb etc ). Azure supports both Desktop OS ( windows 8 and 10 ) and Server OS ( 2008R2 and 2012R2 ), and you need to choose the OS that supports your application. You can connect your VM through RDP, and get a ...

Amazon AWS WorkSpaces provides the virtual desktop on the cloud might suit your requirement. Another option is Microsoft own Azure RemoteApp. I haven't use both, so you got to compare both by yourself. My concern with renting Server VPS for Windows Desktop use is on the availability of the Windows Desktop Image to boot the VPS for the first time. Even if ...

I figured out what's wrong. The NVIDIA GeForce Experience software was causing the problem. I read somewhere that its "share" feature, whatever that is, can cause this problem. I didn't see any way to disable that feature, but I never used the software anyway, so I just uninstalled it. This fixed the problem.

you have to open a port on your firewall to let clients connect to it, SSH runs on port 22, so that's the port you want to forward. If you run the KDE desktop, you might prefer krdc tuto, the KDE RDP viewer. The command line would look like this: krdc --window --high-quality rdp:/1.2.3.4[:3389] replace "1.2.3.4" with the host IP address, and 3389 with a ...

Just login as yourself [the user you are using to do that install etc]. It will close the current session on the remote screen & hand it to you instead, with everything still running. When finished, it will leave the remote machine with a lock screen, but everything still running. Log back in to see everything just as you left it.

Take a look at your ~/.local/share/vinagre/vinagre-bookmarks.xml. It should contain the default window size as <width>800</width><height>600</height>. My windows size is driven by the guest OS. You can however adjust the default vinagre scaling options in the above file too.

This is probably caused by the fact that the RDP protocol does DPI redirection. If you login (initially) from a machine with a normal display (e.g.: 96dpi), then you connect from a laptop that has a high DPI without logging out (e.g.: any 1080p 13" laptop that sports 120dpi), then everything will look tiny as the session will use the DPI settings that were ...

Typically, if you are using the built-in remote desktop program, the only thing you need is a checkbox under the resources tab that allows the clipboard to be shared between machines. Be sure that is checked. Also, since you stated that you got a new SSD, the drive letter may have changed. To check that, click "more" and then make sure that all of the ...

I believe it is another solution: Open System configuration, then Network. Please take a look to the list of connection you may have at your left side column. Be sure that VPN connection appears on top. If not, you may have to change clicking beside the +- configuration button. Find the VPN connection and drug to the top. Click Accept and try again to ...
