Hi folks,

We have machines with these OS installed and have noticed something very annoying. When either machine (1 is the host, the latter is the guest VM) has just been rebooted I cannot connect to them via remote desktop. I can only connect remotely after someone has logged on locally at least once.

Has anyone else encountered this? If so, is there a workaround that will allow me to connect remotely after reboot? The machine is running headless in the garage so having to log on locally is a royal PITA.

Any hints/suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Cheers,
Dany.

Not a solution for this problem exactly, but why not install Logmein Free? The benefit here is that it's accessible from almost anywhere from just a browser - and no need to do port forward on your routers, firewalls, etc.

I use Logmein IT Reach on my servers (paid version), Logmein Free on my client machines, and Logmein Hamachi on all my machines to create my VPN.

That's one possibility but seems pretty crazy to connect between machines less than 10 m away. I'm not entirely sure how LogMeIn works, whether it connects through a gateway somewhere, or directly between the two machines.

Just noticed something in this case - it seems someone has to be logged on locally before anyone can remote desktop into that machine. Have I missed a setting somewhere?

Right - it seems I have discovered that missing setting. When enabling Remote Desktop connections chose to allow only clients with Network Level Authentication. That seems to have fixed the problem. According to the docs this will disallow older Remote Desktop clients - I guess I won't have a problem since I don't have "older" clients....
