RDP logon screen timeout, RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey all, my first time here but probably not last :P
    Here is my problem:

    I work at a school where every student got he's/her's own login etc,
    I have setup a useraccount on local maschines that does autologin and starts mstsc.exe /v:ms /f
    so all works great the stations stand by login to TS server2008

    the thing is the login screen session is closed after about 30 secconds "if idle"
    i have tested different versions of RDP and also tryed connecting to a winxp
    maschine with same setting, but all the same,

    so im guessing its client side registry, but where :s ?

    i have google'd like crazy and no luck :(
    If anyone could anwser that than i owe you a cookie :D

  • Grayzatt,

    What I think you are saying is that you want the PC to sit there, with the RDC session started, but not logged in, until a student wants to use it, at which point the student types in their creds and presto. Right?

    I don't think you want to do this (and I dont know of a way off hand to do it), because this uses resources (for the initial connection) for nothing, just sitting there waiting.

    Why not just put a link to a pre-created RDC file on the desktop, configured the way you want it, and make it read only to the local user.
    Create an RDC file and save it to C (make sure its read only to the local user). Then make a shortcut to this file on the desktop, and make the shortcut read only to the local user. That way they cant change the shortcut.


    Hope this helps, Kristin L. Griffin

  • Thanks for the answer, but no change, the TS config first overrides after login,
    i dont have a brain for scrips etc, but is it possible to make a script to start RDP and check if the process is alive
    every 34sec if not restart RDP :S

    becous it seems like some buildin security or bandwidth thing..

  • Well thats what i wanted yes, i can guess it will eat up resources etc, got gigabit net rdy for but still you are probably right,
    my current setup is:
    comps fire up and wait in windows logonui, there is only one active user called Terminal, when a student gets there he logs in and the RDP starts up, the thing is the time it takes from login -> RDP the computers are kinda slow getting the IP assigned and than starting the connection,, but well if i can live with it than so can they hehe ^^

    Thanks for your time btw :D

  • If anyone is interested than i made 2 .bat files as windows shell to make RDP reapear after closed session
    the problem was, when you exit RDP without a explorer.exe than you have nada, no icons etc.

    so i made a logon.bat ->

    start /min c:\shell.bat

    and shell.bat ->

    color 1b
    cls
    ipconfig /all
    %systemroot%\system32\mstsc.exe
    c:\shell.bat

    to make user autologin i created a user "Termial"
    and changed regvalues:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
    autoadminlogon  1
    defaultusername  Terminal

    to add the new shell i loged in the Termial user on the local mashine and added the regvalue:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
    shell logon.bat

    and now the computer autologs the username and the RDP is at standby, if someone uses it and quit than its restarts the RDP connector :D
    hope this helps ^^
