Remote Desktop Connection (RDC) tutorials

  • Note:- By default any user that is the member of Administrations Group that can connect to Computer that allows Remote Desktop.

  • Rest all users need to be granted the permission or by adding them to Remote Desktop Users Group.

  • Users must have Password, Blank password will not work.

  • If any Firewall S/W is installed then PORT no 3389 must be open for Remote access.

  • When you connect to Server using Remote Desktop, it uses SERVER hardware and memory. So this can be useful for low-end Client PCs where from Win 98,Win 2000,XP or any such clients you can use Windows 2008.

  • When you use Remote Desktop, rather than installing Latest OS on all the PCs, you can install it on One Server and rest of the Client PCs can take advantage of latest version of OS and other Software that are installed on PCs.

  • User workstations run a minimal amount of software and little attention is required.

  • User Data is stored on central location, which simplify data backup & recovery.

  • Antivirus s/w can be installed & updated on Server, ensuring that all update are latest.


To enable/disable Remote Desktop on Win 2008 Server

Start – Administration Tool – Server Manager – on right hand panel select “Configure Remote Desktop”


Right click MY COMPUTERS à Properties – From Left panel Task select “REMOTE SETTING”


Start - CONTROL PANEL à SYSTEM à From Left panel Task select “REMOTE SETTING”



  • From 3 choices that are available

  1. Don’t allow – Default choice. Disable Remote Desktop on Server

  2. Allow connection from computers running any version of Remote Desk Top (Less Secure). This is less secure and it can work with earlier version of XP and 2003

  3. Allow connection only from computer running Remote Desktop with Network Level Authentication (More secure). Security with Remote Desktop has been improved in Windows Server 2008. Network Level Authentication (NLA) is used to authenticate the user, the client machine, and the server before a Terminal Services session is even begun. NLA provides a more secure environment since a session isn’t started immediately as it was in previous versions of Remote Desktop. To support NLA, you must be using at least Windows XP with SP2 or Windows Server 2003 with SP1. With NLA support enabled, you can install the Remote Desktop Client 6.0 Upgrade. The Remote Desktop Client version 6.0 is the default installation for Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008.


  • The Terminal Services features that are enabled on Server 2008 and Windows Vista are not available in the RDC client available by default on Windows XP or Windows Server 2003. To enjoy the advanced security features (such as NLA – Network Level Authentication) of RDC 6.0 from Windows XP or Server 2003,

  • you need to download and install the Remote Desktop Connection 6.0 client update. Additionally, Windows XP must have at least SP2, and Windows Server 2003 must have at least SP1 to install the client. Although not recommended, it is possible to configure the server with weakened security, allowing remote connections using the legacy RDC client.
