Hello,

I am wondering if it is possible to access a computer via windows remote desktop WITH a password while not having a password on the user account i am logging into.

 

Both computers are windows 7.

The setup is I have my primary PC, then I have another PC that I run dedicated servers off for games. I was intending to set up more services from the server later on and realized that the system is completely open, so security is non-existent. 

 

I have the "server-pc" remain always on with a daily restart, however, if i put a password on the user account, it wont load to desktop without the password each time.

 

-So I want the "server" to startup to desktop but require a password when using remote desktop access from my primary system or third-party clients like 2X.

 

Thank you

 

P.S. gpedit.msc>'limit local accounts use of blank passwords to console logon only' is disabled on the server-pc

Have you tried going to the server pc and typing control userpasswords2 inside of a run dialog box? Then uncheck Users must enter a name and password to use this computer?
