    Switching on remote desktop access on vista business

    Hi

    How can I switch on remote desktop access on a vista business pc which is
    connected to a windows small business server domain?

    As I am new to vista (coming from xp pro) some steps would be appreciated.

    Many Thanks

    Regards

    I don't see why not. I was using a Standard user account. I then switched to
    an Admin account. I tried to shutdown the machine as Admin. It came back and
    told me that another account was still active. The only problem you would
    have is if you tried to start another RD session after you switched to the
    other user account, because the RD port(s) would already be in use.
