Windows XP Enable Remote Desktop Before logon

Discussion in 'Windows XP Work Remotely' started by David Salanon, Jan 13, 2004.

  1. Hello all,

    Does anyone know how to get remote desktop working
    when the workstation first boots (without a user logon)?

    Here is the problem.

    When you first turn on the PC, and get a Domain Logon
    screen, I can't connect to the PC Via Remote Desktop.

    If The PC Boots Up and the user logs in and/or logs off
    (without rebooting PC), you can then connect to the pc via
    Remote Desktop.

    HELP!!!

  2. I can. In fact, I can routinely turn domain workstations on, run remote
    desktop sessions with them, and turn them off when done.

    What kind of nics?
    Say a bit about the network involved.

  3. Change the settings on Fast User Switching... This apparently causes
    this issue (at least for people in the past who have posted on this
    issue).

  5. Yep.. Missed the domain reference... There should be an issue
    then... I can RD into any office machine after a boot with no
    problems....
