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.

a group policy. Check with them as needed...
