Remote Desktop connection and file sharing

Hello, I have a technical question about file sharing.

I use a remote desktop connection to connect to the server of the company.  We are currently between the two groups of IT services (last guy retired, he will be missed!) In any case, I need to backup my desktop files locally and have 4 or 5 of these local desktop file files saved as a backup on the server.   I want to just my files desktop back mount easily on the server. And I don't know how / what to ask to do this. I just need to know what to ask.

I'm having problems:

1. I don't know how to configure a file to save its content on and through a secure server.

2. There are two types of files that I am trying to backup my office.  The details are below.

2. the first type of files are simple files of customer data, PDF files, word files, files is excellent. Thus, some records are filled with the updated forms and these files constantly increasing in number and size of the file.  A simple example of this type would be a Bill.  File grows in size and file number every week because the new files are always being added.

2B. I can't accurately describe the second type of file.  We use a program called TFP - when you open the program you load the specific customer file in a drop-down box.  Whenever you open the customer specific AMTS program saves any changes you made to this file and updates the customer file with a new date and then transfers the file from the client to a file from archive in C: drive. Basically, I want to save this file on the server of the company.

3. can we make us safe so that data gets only shared a way?  I don't want people on the server to change my desktop files.

Feel free to ask any questions.   Thank you in advance.

  • What I'm missing to allow Remote Desktop connection?

    What has changed in Windows 7 that is so complicated to get remote desktop connect to run on remote computers?  I have my wife's computer and my home theater computer, but also a 'home' server I managed with the DRC compression or at least I did.  Since the upgrade to windows 7, the only link of DRC, I can do now is my "home" Server (which is based windows2003 I think).

    I've done the basics, I go to properties on my check for distance, computer, the box that says allow remote.  I looked at the firewall level, and he checked as enabled remote assistance.  I went up to build my own port 3389 to rule that it did not help.  I even looked through the services and on each service that is set to manual but not started with the word "remote" in there and started at all, still did not help.

    DRC does everything just not in 7 Home premium?

    You can run Remote Desktop [DRC] in client mode on any version of Windows 7. If you want to use to access remote Windows 7 PC then you need to run Windows 7 ultimate or professional. Home editions of Windows 7 may not act as a host DRC.

    It is the same with Vista Home Edition or XP Home Edition. Nor can serve as hosts for DRC.

    Remember that, although Remote Assistance uses the same port in remote desktop, they are completely different programs.

    You could try TeamViewer as an alternative to control a PC Windows 7 Home. It's free for personal use and you can set it up, if you wish, use a local LAN IP address.

    As an accompaniment, notes his best to administer the WHS Console against the DRC. Here's a WHS Advanced Admin very nice add-in that enhances this feature. I use this on my WHS... MS - MVP Windows Desktop Experience, "when everything has failed, read the operating instructions.

  • Remote Desktop connects then stops after a few seconds

    I have two laptops to Windows 7.  We run OpenVPN which I will refer to the VPN server.  The other is the Client and with me on trips.  Open VPN is configured on the Client and the VPN server, and I can connect from inside and outside the network without any problems.  I also have an Open VPN Client with another port configured on a server QNAS.  I can connect without any problems.

    I want to run the OpenVPN server on one VLAN separated to prevent users to see my internal network and only sees another NAS.  I also use the VPN to offer our few users (3) the ability to connect and use my static IP address.

    I have a router TP-Link-ER-6120.  I can configure the three ports to run in 3 separate VLANS.  When I configure the VPN server works on my regular network to exploit the VLAN1 and VLAN2, I can always connect to OpenVPN and all I want to do works (NAS and Internet access with my static IP).  However, when I try to establish a Session to the VPN server computer remote desktop, I get the login and enter my user name and password.  I see the remote desktop window, open and usually see the remote desktop wallpaper and loading the desktop icons.  Then it crashes.  If he does until I can see the desktop, it automatically attempts to reconnect.  If she makes it that far, it stops with a window that says Remote Desktop connection has been disconnected.

    If I come back in the configuration of the router and change the configuration of VLAN for the server VPN is on the same virtual network, I can connect and the remote desktop connection is successful, as long as the customer is located on my network.  If I connect the Client to the VPN server from outside my network in this configuration, the remote desktop will always fail in the same manner described above.  I also have a QNAS on my network with OpenVPN configured and operational.  If I connect the Client computer to the QNAS, I can connect to the VPN server until the VPN server is placed in its own VIRTUAL LAN.

    Thus, work Desktop connections to local computers.

    However, since a remote off-grid remote office connections begin to work, but are stopped when connecting.

    -J' I ping the VPN server during connection attempts and never lose the connection.

    -J' used telnet to Server VPN 3389 port and it connects.

    -J' turned off the firewalls on both sides and went up to remove Symantec on the VPN and BitDefender server on the side side Client to use Windows Firewall on both.  And then disabled Windows Firewall as well and still no joy.

    Is there a setting in Windows I'm missing that allow the desktop connection remote on the LAN, but not enable during login remotely even if I can ping, telnet and usually access the rest of the network?

    Is it maybe a configuration problem on the side of the router?  Installation side route is a very simple graphic interface.  I configured for the VPN service roads and they remain in place (one for the QNAS) and one for the OpenVPN server.  I set up a static route (virtual server) for port 3389 go directly to the IP address of the VPN server, but that did nothing.

    Miss me probably something simple, but it launched my ass for weeks now.

    Any ideas?

  • I have a new server and you cannot use Remote Desktop connection.



    I suggest you to try the steps below and check if it helps.

     The problem can also be caused by your security such as anti-virus program or a firewall of Windows /Defender that can have conflicting parameters as to not not to perform certain tasks. I suggest you temporary disable antivirus and firewall and check the result again. You must activate new security that you was disabled programs.
    Disable the antivirus software:

    May also need to do this on other computers as well.

    Important note: Antivirus software can help protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. In most cases, you should not disable your antivirus software. If you need to disable temporarily to install other software, you must reactivate as soon as you are finished. If you are connected to the Internet or a network, while your antivirus software is disabled, your computer is vulnerable to attacks.

  • Remote Desktop connection between my Windows 7 and a new friends Windows 8.1

    Hello. My friend just got his first computer and is completely lost. She has absolutely no experience with a computer and a computerphobe of full tilt. We are 400 miles away and tried to help him by phone with little luck. To make things worse, I think that someone in which she rose to set his computer did not understand 8.1 either. I've been computing for a long time and have studied 8.1 and feel comfortable with it. But I never configured before remote connection and am unsure of certain things.

    First the operating environment:

    My computer: Inspiron 560 s under Windows 7 Home Premium.

    I'm on a home using Netgear network. I'm not using a wifi connection.

    His new computer: desktop HP Pavilion Slimline model 300-413 running Windows 8.1.

    I'm not sure of its network connections.

    Note: I use this to 8.1 as a guide (the link opens the guide for Windows 7...? But I use the guide for 8.1)...

    I think I can happen by steps 1.a. to 1.e. without any difficulty.

    Now the questions:

    1. in step 1.e.1. regarding 'Locations', I don't know what are the options it will present with or should I tell him to choose?

    2. to step 2.b. on the 'system', I know that she must see 'Computer name' and 'Working group', but I'm not sure what she's going to see in which area '? This does not appear on my version of Windows 7.

    3. If I can talk to him through this, she will be able to watch what I'm doing on his monitor?

    Please keep in mind that it is a perfect beginner so no instructions to its end should be as simple as possible, and I am new to 8.1 and uncertain as to what exactly she will see during the installation.

    She told me yesterday that she is so frustrated that she's almost ready to throw it all in the street and forget it. So any help and advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    I am running Windows 7 Ultimate and try to use the Office XP Pro system remotely. I am the admin on both boxes and I have all of the necessary credentials. It errors I wonder if there are some parameters in 7 that I'm missing. Any suggestions?

    Hi Caslon540. Here's something that might help you troubleshoot:

    Another thought, is that you will need to download a later version of connection desktop remotely (version 6.0 or later) so that XP can handle the incoming connection to Windows 7 that uses authentication NLA.

    Hope that helps.

  • Several passwords for pop account are lost and the remote DESKTOP connections is no longer have registered credentials after logging out of the laptop to the domain and rebooted.

    Original title: passwords lost after reboot

    I have a user with multiple pop accounts and multiple rdp servers to which it connects

    When the laptop is connected to the domain he is allowed to save the credentials of rdp as usual and also its pop accounts work fine

    If the laptop is removed from the dock and hibernating come off hibernation works very well

    the problem starts when it restarts in fact the laptop when it is on the road.

    When he goes in outlook passwords for pop account are lost and all its Remote Desktop connections is no longer have recorded identification information

    his outlook passwords will save is no longer and rdp connections will save is no longer

    Once he returned to the office and connects back to the field all his pop account passwords are restored, the credentials of the rdp remain missing, but it can re - save them

  • The preliminary version of remote desktop connection has expired.

    The preliminary version of remote desktop connection has expired.  To download the full version of remote desktop connection, go to Windows Update or contact your system administrator (Please give me the solution for this problem)

    There are several ways you can solve the problem:

    You can copy the files from a Windows XP SP2 computer and then Windows Remote Desktop should work again.
    a. c:\windows\system32\mstscax.dll

    b. mstsc.exe

    Copy the files in safe mode if not just windows will recreate the files even if you replace them or delete them

    Or you can download an update from the Microsoft Download site and it will get your Remote Desktop works again.
    Update for Windows XP (KB969084) - The Remote Desktop Connection 7.0 client update allows you to use the new remote desktop Services features.

    Please read the known issues in Windows XP from the article above.

    I'm running 32 bit xp pro svc pk 3, ie 8. I have a friend who is running xp home, svc pk 3, IE 8. I want to set up a connection to remote so I can help with fixing on the xp pc problems at home.

    Thank you N Syed, but I finally found a site that has responded to my question. Noted above, and it explains where and what file to find mstsc file and place it in the folder of the comm in VAC. However it gave me an error msg: specified file is not found. PAM handed the file system protected to system32 and instead, I created a shortcut on the desktop. and now, I'll check the link above.

    Downloading and the ms support link is fine, but they do not explain where the file is located on your computer, it just says that it is loaded in your pc.

    Appreciate your attempt anyway. Thank you and I am afraid that this question is closed.

  • Cannot print using Remote Desktop connection

    I have a computer that we will called XP. XP was XP loaded on this subject. It is on a home network with ethernet etc. It has a USB Samsung CLP315 printer attached to it, which we will call SAMSUNG.  XP print SAMSUNG without any problem. SAMSUNG is shared and has the latest drivers.

    Configuration on XP
    Pilot # is 3.04.85:44
    Port: USB001 virtual printer for USB Port
    Sharing installed additional drivers Intel environment Windows 2000 or XP

    Using Remote Desktop connection, I connect to my computer at work, that we will call the WORK that has Windows 7 above and is part of a local network. When you use Word for example on WORK, I should be able to print on SAMSUNG on XP. However SAMSUNG on XP does not present as a printer available. However, I can print from JOB printers shared on the local network or locally connected. Unfortunately, it is of limited use to me because I can not physically get the printed paper, or to know if the printed page correctly until the next day, I get to work.

    I have the Settings Options on the remote desktop connection when I connect XP to WORK remotely. I think that this complies with the info I found on the knowledge base.

    On the general tab, I have the correct name of the computer and user. I have "allow me to save credentials" deselected.

    Local "resources" tab, "materials and resources local printers" and "Clipboard" are selected. Under 'More', 'smart cards' and 'Cards series' are selected. Similarly 'Readers' and 'Supported peripheral Plug - n Play' and their subitems are all selected.

    Tab programs not specified

    If there is other information in the options that may be relevant, please advise and I will detail later.

    Already XP used to via the desktop connection to remotely connect to another computer to WORK which took place of XP. When I'd do things on the WORK and wanted to print with SAMSUNG on XP, SAMSUNG has shown on the list of available printers and would print WORK jobs

    On the local network at the office, WORK is connected and print to a shared printer on a computer showroom (XP) which is identical to the SAMSUNG for model # and driver. So by my way of thinking, the driver is already loaded and functioning.

    Any help would be appreciated.
