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.
