In our setup we have a network of 6 to 8 computer with no one of them having password and it logs straight on with operator user id. I want control these systems remotely but due to no password it does not allow me to do so. I can get into one computer by team viewer but try to do RDP but it is not working.

Any alternate solution as we cannot assign password to our system.

Thanks in advance.

This is not recommended for various security reasons, but you should be able to enable RDP sans password with the following steps:
1. Open up Administrative tools
2. Open up Local Security Policy
3. Expand Local Policies and click on Security Options
4. Double click on "Accounts: Limit local account use of blank passwords to console logon only" and click Disabled
5. Reboot.

You can also use alternatives like Team Viewer (as you've tried) or VNC.

  • If you ran a VNC server you better use a password. You will be hacked if you don't that is a guarantee. – Ramhound Nov 17 '14 at 20:02
