So I have a chromebook, and it's good at doing what it is supposed to, but there are just some windows programs that I need to use. I have a home server running Windows Server 2008-R2 Enterprise, and I installed teamviewer to be able to remote control (and therefore, use windows applications) from out of the house. Teamviewer, when running on servers, supports what it calls "Enhanced multi-user support" for terminal servers. This assigns each RDP user a special teamviewer ID (which is used to connect to a computer) and also assigns the physical server an ID, (which you can use to log in to the console session remotely). Connecting the console session works, but with the old video card installed, I am stuck with pretty bad 4:3 resolution on a modern computer. Not so nice... But when I connect using windows RDP from a PC, I get a nice, adapted 16:9 dislpay. (Since RDP uses a virtual session). Now, I should be able to use a virtual session (like RDP) through teamviewer, by using the specific user ID. That way, I am essentially connecting to the server using RDP, but through teamviewer. However, whenever I try that, it tries to connect, but just shows a black screen. And while the black screen is up, if I were to connect via Windows RDP from a PC (at the same time), the windows rdp would connect, and suddenly teamviewer would also connect. And once I closed the windows RDP window, teamviewer's screen would freeze, and nothing would move.
I suspect that this is happening because windows server puts accounts in a "disconncected" state when an RDP session is closed, therfore not allowing teamviewer to connect me. But teamviewer claims that this should work.
Is there some way to make this work?
