Hey.

 

I'd like to remotely connect to my media server PC (on 24/7) without even having to touch it. The reason why is because it's hard wired to my router in the basement without a desk. I also have peripherals connected to it currently that I'd like use on other setups. It'd just make things a lot easier for me.

 

I started off by trying Windows Remote Desktop and it was nice that I could connect to the server without psychically going to it, but it has to log the server off first, requiring me to manually log it back on when done. I then read about Remote Assistance which doesn't log off the server PC but requires an invitation from the server. If only Windows combined those two features.

 

I'd really like to use just the Windows tools for this if at all possible. Perhaps with a registry edit? I did read about the unsolicited remote assistant registry edit that made it simpler to use RA but it still required having to click something on the server.

 

If I can't use the Windows tools, are there any other options that allow this?

 

Thanks in advance

 

Edit: This would be on my home network only.

Why don't you use TeamViewer remote control/remote access software, free for personal use

I don't know that Windows Remote Assistance has an option to not require user acceptance.  I'd recommend setting your server to automatically log in and continue to use RDP.  When you get down with your RDP session run SHUTDOWN -R -T 1 to restart the machine.  That's how I handle my media machine.

That works perfectly. Thanks

I know this may be coming in a bit late, but have you tried using any "Enable Multiple Concurrent User in Remote Desktop" tweaks; this may require updating a system DLL and an easy registry hack.  You could also try RDPWrap.
