Enable remote desktop (Remotely)

Tonight I’ve had a problem connecting to a server I built earlier today but as I left I forgot to enable the Remote desktop connection. AHHH i hear you say.

No problem I remember reading several years that it was just a reg key to change turn it on or off, and fortunately its the same on Server 2008.

HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server

Simple change the fDenyTSConnections (REG_DWORD) from 1 to 0.

1 = turn off

0 – turn on

Simple reboot the server with "shutdown -m \\servername -r

Hope this helps
