Enabling RDP on a server remotely.

There’s very little more annoying in a windows environment than having to go to a console of a server because some idiot has disabled remote administration on a server 2003/2000 server. I was in this situation recently and decided not to go to the console out of principle.


I wrote the following program in order to get around this issue. Its called RDPon.exe and you can get it here:

With this you can:

  • Query RDP status
  • Enable RDP
  • Disable RDP

I have sealed it as an exe so that you can right click it and choose run as to get at your admin account easily.
