Windows 7: How To do Persistent RDP/Remote Console on LAN?

How To do Persistent RDP/Remote Console on LAN?

I'm looking for a good permanent/persistent RDP Remote Desktop setup to the Win7 machine I'm mostly using as HTPC and file service. It would be ideal if the setup also included the ability to wake the HTPC from sleep. I would like to RDP with Win7/8 'console', plus iPAD and Android handsets/tabs.

What's the best application to use for this? the ones I know of offhand all require intervention on both ends, which is not what I'm after. I need more of a server type setup.

What do you suggest?

Have you looked at Teamviewer? If you install the full version (rather than just the "client" version) in the PC you need to access, you can configure it so that it can be accessed remotely from another PC with the full version installed. There are also Teamviewer Apps for both Apple iOS and Android.

XP recovery console versus Vista/7's recovery console
It seems to me that XP's recovery console is somewhat better than the one that comes with Vista or 7, unless someone can point me in the right direction for finding further documentation on this topic. The main difference is the lack of ability to tinker with services (LISTSVC / ENABLE / DISABLE...

Using Remote Desktop instead of Remote Assistance for remote helpdesk?
Hi I know there are other products out there, like vnc, ultravnc, teamviewer etc etc, but really nothing beats the sheer speed of remote desktop, it's like sitting in front of the actual computer. I also know about Remote Assistance built into Windows 7. I would like to use remote desktop...
