Windows 7: Remote Desktop Connection (RDC) - Network

Windows 7 Ulimate x32
 
 

I have Win 7 Ultimate 32bit on two machines, a laptop and a desktop with two monitors. I have no problem connecting to either machine from the other but on the desktop I can't move the session over to the second monitor. This is the only app that has this issue.
Is there something special about RDC that stops it being moved to the other screen?

Use the restore down button and you should be able to move it to the other screen.

I am trying to set up RDC so I can access two different computers from outside my home network. When I go through the step of changing the port assignment in the registry to something other than 3389, the RDC no longer works. As long as I use port 3389 I have no trouble using RDC inside or outside of my home network. I am restarting after the registry change. I've also tried adding new rules to the firewall redirect the port, but no luck.

Update: I finally found another port what would work by changing the registry value. Then I had to turn off Windows Firewall for it to connect on that port. I can't seem to create a rule which will allow RDC to work with the firewall on.

Hi Atom,

Try creating a rule in Window Firewall to allow c:\windows\system32\mstsc.exe, in addition to the port.

In order to get it to work, I had to apply the patch I found here:
Log into multiple RDP sessions and without interrupting user

and create a new rule in Windows firewall. It won't work without the patch.

Hi to all.
I'm able to connect to my pc via remote desktop, but when I close the Remote Desktop windows the relative user (the one I was using for the remote connection) is active but the user windows selection appears. There is a way to "relogin" the user to restore the situation as it was before the remote desktop connection? (the user normally is set to auto login at windows startup).

Hello mcyver,

I wouldn't think so.
