Remote Desktop

I used to be able to run a bat file which opened a server using remote desktop, this was logging me into the console session.

It was not me who created this bat file so i havent a clue how to do it

There is a service running in console seesion and i cannot create 2 instances of it hence logging into the console session

Any help

Thanks in advance

    I'm not really sure what you are asking.

    The command to run remote desktop is MSTSC. If you go to the command line and run MSTSC /? it will display the switches that can be used. The command to connect to the console session is MSTSC /V:servername /Console I believe this only works with Server 2003.

    Thanks, thats what i needed

    I put that line into a txt file and re-named the extension to a bat

    Do you have any idea how you set the resolution in the bat file, would help as it opens with scroll bars

    looks at the help for MSTSC, it looks like there are some switches that will work for resolution.

    Use /f to start in full screen.
    All things are possible, only believe.

    Just use visionapp. It gives all the remote desktop options in a GUI. Easy to use and free. :)
