Video - Microsoft Remote Desktop - Part One

This video by ImpartLabs is a tutorial that talks about Remote Desktop. With Remote Desktop you'll be able to take control over any computer you want to. It's similar to Remote Assistance and Net Meeting, the difference is with Remote Desktop both users will be able to view what's going on.

What You Need to Connect Remote Desktop

IP address
User Administrative Rights
Or a normal user which has been allowed access to connect remotely

Windows Operating Systems that can initiate a Remote Connection:

XP Pro
Vista

Windows Operating Systems that can receive a Remote Connection:

95/98/200
XP Home/XP Pro
Vista

The video displays a table that shows four types of connections:

1. Remote connection across the Internet. You need the public IP address of the remote computer
2. Remote connection to computer on a VPN. When you connect to a VPN server a tunnel would be made between you and the VPN server. You would be part of the VPN network. You need the public IP address of the VPN.
3. Remote connection to computer on the same local network. You need the local IP address of the computer or the computer name and the domain name.
4. Remote connection to computer in the same Workgroup. You need the local IP address of the computer and the Workgroup name.

Setup the Computer Receiving Remote Connection

In the System Properties dialog box, on the Remote tab, set the checkbox "[] Allow users to connect remotely to this computer". If the user account that your connecting to is not an Administrator, click on the [Select Remote Users...] button and add the user to the list.

In Control Panel open the Windows Firewall utility and on the General tab, make sure "[] Don't allow exception" checkbox is NOT checked. On the Exceptions tab,make sure "[] Remote Desktop" is checked. If not click on the [Add programs...]buttons, find Remote Desktop, and add it.

In part two we set up Remote Desktop at the connection originating computer, and make the connection to the remote computer.
