The remote desktop function of Windows Server 2003 (Windows 2003 for short) provides convenience for the network management system to maintain. Normally the remote desktop function needs to be enabled on the Windows 2003 server which is quite troublesome. In fact you can also use the method of remotely modifying the registry to open the remote desktop of the Windows 2003 server remotely on the client.
The first step: remotely modify the Windows 2003 registry
In the client system click 'Start' and 'Run' and enter in the 'Run' dialog box \u0026ldquo;regedit\u0026rdquo; command to enter the registry editor. Then in the main menu bar click 'File' 'Connect to the network registry' and the 'Select Computer' dialog box will pop up. In the 'Enter the name of the object you want to select
Select the object name' field Fill in the machine name of the Windows 2003 server (such as SERVER1) that you want to enable the remote desktop function and finally click the 'OK' button to open the Windows 2003 server registry.
In the left column of the Registry Editor expand the \u0026ldquo;server1\\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SYSTEM\\CurrentControlSet\\Control\\Terminal Server\u0026rdquo; project and then find the \u0026ldquo;fDenyTSConnections\u0026rdquo; key in the right column double-click to open it Modify the key value to \u0026ldquo;0\u0026rdquo; click on the \u0026ldquo;OK\u0026rdquo; button and finally close the registry editor.
Step 2: Restart the Windows 2003 server remotely
Although we opened the Windows 2003 remote desktop by remotely modifying the registry the modification has not yet taken effect and we need to restart Windows 2003 server.
In the client click 'Start' Run' and enter the 'CMD' command in the 'Run' dialog box to enter the command prompt window. Type the \u0026ldquo;shutdown -m \\\\SERVER1 r\u0026rdquo; command to restart the Windows 2003 server (SERVER1 is the machine name of the Windows 2003 server).
After completing the above two steps the remote desktop of the Windows 2003 server is turned on and the network administrator can use the 'remote desktop connection' on the client to maintain the Windows 2003 server.
Reminder: The domain user account used on the client has the authority to remotely modify the registry and remotely restart the Windows 2003 server. Common domain users do not have this authority.
