Now we're prompted to accept the certificate from the remote computer. The reason we're being prompted is because we're not using a trusted certificate authority out on the internet, instead we're using our own locally minted certificates that were created when we first installed both of these computers. So basically the Remote Desktop client is saying, "Hey, I don't know if this is a goodcertificate or not" well we know that it's fine. So I'm going to go ahead and say don't ask me again for connections to this computer as click Yes to accept it. Now notice here that it tells me that TestOutStudent is already signed in on the remote system and if I proceed it's going to require that user account to be logged off from the remote system. Do we want to go ahead and do this? Yep, we're going to say go ahead and log that user off from the remote system and use that same user account to log in remotely to that system. Now we've got to switch over to our other system. And notice that we're prompted with a warningsaying, "Another user wants to connect to this machine" we have to decide what we're going to do,are we going to allow that, basically this is telling me that I'm going to be logged off and the remote users going to be logged in. If I click Cancel that will not be allowed, if I click OK it will be immediately allowed or if I wait too long like I just did, more than 30 seconds, I'm automatically logged off and I'm automatically logged in and the remote session as the user account that we specified. When I do, I see the desktop of the remote system displayed here on my desktop. And I can interact with the remote system as if I were physically sitting in front of it. For example I could come down here and I could start Control Panel on the remote system, I could make configuration changes or maybe change a user's password, whatever it is I need to do to remotely manage that system. And then when I'm done I can go ahead and sign out. This will log me off from the remote system and close the Remote Desktop connection and I never had to leave my desk to go make the configuration change on that remote system. Summary 15:02-15:11 That's it for this demonstration. In this demo, we talked about how to establish a Remote Desktop connection. We talked about how to enable a Remote Desktop on a system that we want to connect to and then we talked about how to configure a Remote Desktop connection to connect to that system. Remote Desktop lets you access your computer from a remote location over a network connection. With Remote Desktop: The remote host (called the server) is left running in a state ready to accept a connection. The remote client (running on a different computer) establishes the connection and logs on to the remote host.

The client computer can then run programs, make configuration changes, or access data on the host computer.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
