Windows 7: Login with RDP, without bumping current session.

12 Sep 2010   #61

Windows 7 Ultimate x64, Fedora x64

I cannot for the life of me make it work .

I am on Windows 7 x64 Ultimate fully updated. I tried the script from the first post of this forum, I tried the patch from TCP-Z, Best TCP/IP Patch: Universal Termsrv.dll Patch V1.0b Build 20090425 Release. I tried to copy manually the dlls. I verified the relevant registry keys (fDenyTSConnections, fSingleSessionPerUser, etc). I always get a message that a session is already active.

My Windows is a french version, would that cause any problems? I did change the script to correct the name of the service and user.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64, Fedora x64

It's been a very long time, but apparently, whenever I try to connect via localhost with port 3389, it refuses to open a new session. It works when I connect from another computer or if I forward another port to port 3389 (say I forward port 50002 to localhost:3389 and connect with localhost:50002). It seems that the remote desktop connection program is coded to treat a localhost:3389 connection specially.

Linux CENTOS 7 / various Windows OS'es and servers

Hi there
use the technique of "Tunnelling" with a little program called putty.exe - This allows you a lot of flexibility in routing ports etc to machines on your own LAN.

The mechanism of setting it up is too complex to explain in this post but read further .

Here's an example but google further for more information on how to do it.

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit
Turn off, disable "other users are logged on" message when restarting

Is there a registry setting or option to turn off the message

"other users are logged on"

you get when you try to turn off or restart/ Windows 7, vista, xp etc? (Also ubuntu if it's not off topic)

Whats a "quite command"?

I guess I'm looking for no warning even if other users are logged on and multi RDP.

Also where are the settings to turn on or off the various windows warning messages and notices? (I'm NOT referring to the "action center" messages).

I'm doing a lot of virtual testing and multi RDP etc.

Also how do you go through 2 subnets, where one is a virtual VMWare subnet

Real PC -> router 1 -> sub router 2 -> VMware subnet -> VMWare workstation.

Thank you.

Normally when you log in to a remote computer with RDP (Remote Desktop),
the current session on that computer is automatically logged of.

I found a site named "Missing Remote" and they made a script to prevent that, thus enabling concurrent sessions.

With their script it is not only possible to log on to a remote computer, without bumping the current user,
it's even possible to log in with the same account as the current user without bumping it.

When can this scenario be handy?

Well, suppose someone is watching a recorded show on your HTPC, and you want to log in?
Now you can, without the person watching the show even knowing you logged in.
You can even plan a new recording without interrupting the current user.

You can do maintenance on the machine while your wife is writing an email, or your kids are doing their homework.
They won't even know you're there.

The guys at missing remote made such a good tutorial, I won't bother to write one here.

The only thing they forgot to mention, but is pretty obvious, is that you need to run the script on the remote machine you want to log in to.

Another thing I noticed is that with the RTM version you type "install multi"
and when you use the build 7100 version you have to type "install -multi"

I have only tried the RTM version and that worked with "install multi", so the " - " in the 7100 version might be a typo.
If you use the " - " and when login in still bumps the current session, just run the script again but this time without " - ".
