Remote Desktop Considerations 4:52-5:31 There are several considerations you need to keep in mind while using a remote desktop session.While the remote desktop session is active, the desktop on the target computer is locked. Interactive logons are blocked for the duration of the remote session. While the remote desktop session is active, no one else can log in without disconnecting the remote session. If another user is already logged on to the remote system, you can't establish a remote desktop connection without first logging out the existing authenticated user. Remote desktop connections can't be established through network address translation or NAT router. If you need to do this, you must first implement remote desktop gateway service on a Windows server. Summary 5:32-5:47 In this lesson, we introduced you to remote desktop. We first talked about how remote desktop works, then we showed you how to enable remote desktop on a Windows system. We reviewed how to establish a remote desktop session. We ended this lesson by talking about several considerations you need to keep in mind when using remote desktop. Using Remote Desktop 0:00-0:24 In this demonstration, we're going to talk about using Remote Desktop. Remote Desktop is a really useful tool. Basically it allows you to connect to a remote computer and use the desktop of that remote computer as if you were sitting in front of it and this can very useful especially if you work as a help desk technician. It allows you to troubleshoot problems on remote computer system withouthaving to be physically present. Enable Remote Desktop 0:25-3:19 Now in order to do this we first have to configure Windows to allow Remote Desktop connections. We have two different Windows systems we're going to be working with in this demonstration. This is a Windows 8 system, this is where were going to enable Remote Desktop connections. I also have a Windows 10 system that we're going to initiate a Remote Desktop connection from. So let's go ahead and enable Remote Desktop connections on this system. In order to do this I can right-click on my Windows icon and then select either Control Panel or if we want to jump straight to System within Control Panel we select System and as you can see it takes us to Control Panel, System and Security and System and we want to click this option right here, Remote Settings. Now I'm currently logged in as a standard user before I can make changes to this computer I need to elevate privileges via UAC to a user that has administrator level access to the system. I'll go ahead and do that now. OK, as you can see currently Remote Desktop connects are not allowed. Let's go ahead and turn that option on. There are basically two different levels of Remote Desktop access that you can enable. By default if we just mark allow remote connections to this computer, we allow pretty much any operating system that supports Remote Desktop connections to connect to this system.

    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.
