WinPE and RDP/Remote Server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Just wondering if it is possible to configure Windows PE to be an RDP server?  We also use Dameware in house here and this would be nice to have as well.  Basically our goal is to have the user boot off the network then have a screen displaying the IP address in the MDT wizard, so they are able to give us the IP to remote on and finish the imaging process for them.

    I've done some googling and it seems I'm not the first one to try.  Any solutions i've found have come up short and do not work.

  • You could automate the process so they just pxe and everything is automated based on serial, asset, make/model.

    Or you could try this..it may work for you.Its not RDP but might work http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/44483-how-to-integrate-vnc-into-your-winpe-install/ 

    You could add ipconfig to the startnet.cmd so that the ip address is shown automatically.

    Here is help on startnet.cmd http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc766521(WS.10).aspx
