Video - Microsoft Remote Desktop - Part Two

This video by ImpartLabs is a tutorial that talks about Remote Desktop. In part one we setup the Computer receiving the Remote Connection.

To set up Remote Desktop at the connection originating computer:

Select Start | All Programs | Accessories | Communications | Remote Desktop Connection. In the Remote Desktop Connection dialog box, on the General tab:

in the Computer drop-down list put the IP address of the remote computer.
in the User Name text box, put the user's name at the remote computer.
in the Password text box, put that user's pssword.

You can save this Remote Desktop Connection setup as a shortcut on the desktop.

On the Display tab, set the display resolution to Full screen or to a lower resolution, and choose a color depth.

On the Local Resources tab:

in the Remote computer sound section drop-down list select a sound option such as "Bring to this computer".
in the Keyboard section drop-down list select a keyboard option such as "In full screen mode only".
in the Local devices section, set checkboxes for the devices on the remote end that you want to use, such as the Printer.

On the Programs tab:

If you want a program to be started up as soon as you remote connect to that computer, set the "[] start the following programs on connection" check box and enter the path and file name of the program you want to start.

On the Experience tab:

In the "Choose your connection speed" drop-down list, set the type of connection you have, whether it's dial-up or broad band. there are also several checkboxes you can set to choose if you want to allow the Desktop background, Themes, etc.

After you have configured the settings in the Remote Desktop Connection dialog box, click on the [Connect] button to connect to the remote computer. Enter the remote user's name and password.

This connection is called a "session". If you close the session, everything you did on the other end will still be there. For example if you opened an application, it will still be open when you open a session again. However, if you shut down the Remote Connection, every thing will be gone.

In Windows Vista, make sure that on the last tab of the Remote Desktop Connection dialog box you choose to allways connect if authentication fails.
