Hi there,

i have a server running Windows server 2003, and wish to allow users to
access this server via a RDP session. I've seen once before that the RDP
login screen can be placed onto a basic html webpage, and this will contain
all active x controls necessary for the user to login with.

All i need is some help on how do i action this onto my private webpage
&
are there any extra software/settings i need to have set up to allow this?

Any help would be appreciated

Chris

Chris,

Although the following article from the Microsoft www site is written from
the perspective of connecting into a Windows XP system via RDP over HTTP, it
turns out that the same procedure can be used to install the remote desktop
web connection capability on Windows Server 2003. I think that in the case of
Small Business Server 2003 this feature gets installed automatically but I do
not think it is automatic in the case of Server 2003. In any case here is
the url to the article on the Microsoft www site:

As you will see if you read the article, once you install the tsweb client,
you can even use the target system as a "transit switch" to RDP into other
systems on your network.

This is the Remote Desktop Web Connection. It is included with
Windows 2003 and may or may not be installed. It is one of the
options under Application Server - IIS...
