Remote Desktop notification complete

Windows XP


  • 1. VPN connect
    Running small biz server 2000 and have VP41 linksys VPN router. Lan can access internet no problem. Have set up VPN on router according to the book but it mentions IPSEC setup on client. RUnning XP-HOME on clients and asked to start MSEP.MSC to set up IPSEC but that program doesn't exist on the XP home boxes. Am I forced to to to XP PRO in order to connect to VPN? Linksys said to set remote and secure group to "ANY" which is different that the book but... I tried using the connection wizard in XP-home and set the ip address to the one from my ISP as was told to do. I connect and eventually I get error 800. I have set/reset many times and am really stuck on what I assume is that I have settings wrong somewhere. Wish there was a simple step by step for neophytes like me..

    At home I've got several Windows XP Home PCs connected using a Linksys 802.11g wireless network. I would like to be able to access one or more of these PCs (using Remote Desktop Connection) when I'm at work. My ISP is a cable service (Comcast). The client PCs on my home network do not have Static IPs. Can someone give me some guidance on how to make this work? Bob

Remote Desktop notification complete

Postby Jeff.Boeker » Fri, 08 Jun 2007 03:40:17 GMT


I'm trying to find some way to determine when a remote desktop
connection has been closed.  For example if someone connects to the
test pc remotely I want to know when they are done (when they have
closed the connection).  Any ideas on how to accomplish this?

The only way I would know how to do that is to look at the logging 
information for the particular PC... I have some info here...

1.Remote Desktop & Notification Area

When I connect to my Vista installation from XP using Remote Desktop, none 
of the icons in the Notification Area get drawn - I just get boxes where I 
can see the underlying desktopn underneath. I have my taskbar set to auto 
hide if that makes a difference.

Is there anything I can do about this?


2.Remote Desktop load never completes

This morning a problem has occurred where remote desktop sessions fail to 
completely initialize.  When I log into a RDP session to a Windows 2003 
server, the desktop never loads.  All I see is the grey background; the start 
menu and desktop icons never appear, and the only way to get out is to 
disconnect the RDP session.  This is happening on a few servers, not just 
one.  It only seems to be affecting Windows 2003 servers.

I am logging in with the admin account.  This was not happening yesterday, 
and it's affecting servers in admin mode or full TS mode.  It almost seems to 
be an authentication delay of some type.

Anyone with any suggestions?  Thanks.

3.Remote Desktop logon does not complete

I have two XP Pro machines. RDC has worked very well for some time, 
but occasionally (and it's happening now), I am unable to logon. The 
symptom is that I get connected and see the default background, and 
in this case it even prompts me to change the password on the remote 
machine since it is about to expire. But then after saying no, it 
hangs for a minute or so. Eventually it redraws the background and 
just goes away.  If I do not un-maximize the RDC window when the 
program starts, my session may even hang for a little while before 
timing out (i.e., Windows is unresponsive on the machine I am 
connecting from).  The remote system has a screen saver but I've 
found it situations where it hasn't even kicked in when I get back 
to work (where the machine I am trying to connect to is located), 
but this is not always the case so I don't see it being involved. 
I'm going through a firewall to get to the remote system but when 
I've had these problems in the past it hasn't made a difference if I 
do it remotely or on the building LAN.

Any idea what could cause this to happen (or how to fix it)? One 
time when I had this problem for an extended period (or maybe it was 
just refusing the connection entirely), I disabled and then enabled 
remote desktop on the remote machine and it solved it. I have not 
rebooted the remote system since this started happening.


4.Cannot Remote Desktop to servers Even if in Remote Desktop Users Group

So To allow my IT Staff to Remote Desktop to the Server machines without 
being a Domain Admin, I followed the how to on Creating the Restricted Group 
and then Adding that group to the Local Remote Desktop Users group.

The IT staff can login just fine.  If I as Sam User to the Remote Desktop 
Users group on the local server they are not allowed in and get the message 
about having to be added to the group.

What gives?  Did I setup the Restricted Group Wrong?
