How to Activate remotely Remote Desktop Connections, Windows 2003 and Windows 2008


 

For some reason, if you forget to activate the Remote desktop, and the Datacenter is far away, you can easily activate this feature, by doing the following steps.

First you login in one computer or server, in the same domain.

Open Registry, and connect to Network Registry.

After you connect to your server, navigate to the following hive, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server

 

 Change the REG_DWORD fDenyTSConnections, from 1 to 0.

 

 

 Now you can connect to your server, as Administrator.

 

If for some reason, don´t work after changes, please reboot the server. Open a command prompt and write the following:

 

 shutdown /r /m \\SERVERNAME /f /t 00

Enjoy 🙂.
