Hi I have a question

I use the following commandline to start a remotesession to my servers
consolesession, and that works fine.
"mstsc /console /v:lurvas"

Is there a possibility to configurate a .RDP file to do the same trick?
My .RDP-file works fine but I can´t conect to the Consolesession.

Thanks for youre answer
The problem is that I follow the instructions in the article

1. Open Remote Desktop Connection.
2. In the Computer box, type the computer name or the IP address of a
terminal server or a computer that has Remote Desktop enabled.
Note: To connect to the console session of the remote computer, type
computername or IP address /console.
3. Click Connect.
4. In the Log On to Windows dialog box, type your user name, password, and
domain (if necessary), and then click OK.

When I type LURVAS /console I get an Errormessage that says someting like
Unvalid servername ( I use a Swedish Windos XP)

If i only type LURVAS as servername i get a new session to the server but
not the consolsession.

Am i Doing annything wrong or....

Hi Jens,

Thanks for your post!

The steps is correct. However,technical speaking, Windows XP does not have
the feature to connect to console session using a .RDP-file, which is
different with Windows 2k3 server. The method you mentioned can be
accomplished on Windows 2003 server and you may save the console connection
as a RDP files. I understand your feeling and how frustrated when you find
that our product cannot meet your needs. So, if you would, please feel free
