remote desktop is it possible

hi all

my problem is that after rdc from work to home puter i disconnect the session from work which leaves the home puter sitting at the log on screen which means sql server is not running so mportal can record the set recordings until i get home and log on again .

is there some way of ending the sesssion of rdc and leave the home puter logged on as it was before the rdc session started.

cheers brad

According the the very *bottom* of Microsoft XP Professional Remote Desktop just close the RDClient and it should not log you off....

I connect from work to home almost every day. I can leave a program open and running on the home computer and open and close the rdc without affecting it. Now if you are connected via rdc and someone tries to login at the remote end then rdc will disconnect. XP only allows one login at a time.

I tried RDP with my seven and clearly my account was not logged off after closing rdp session.

It should be locked, but not logging off.

Did you try to a remote connection with an other account ?

i can log back in no problem but i want mportal to still keep recording on the puter i am rdc into after i disconnect
so when the desktop is locked it cant keep recording my scheduled programs

i will try tonight maybe it will work if i close the window instead of logging off and see if it works maybe the screen is just locked and not logged off
