    Defult login server when remote controlling a desktop

    Hello,

    I have setup a staff member so they can remote controll there desktop computer from home. its just been updates to windows 7 and everythign is fine appart from this one niggley little problem

    when remote controling the computer it first takes you to the logon screen when the defult login server is the local computer and not the domain controler. this means they cannot login unless the remember to specify the domain before there username (domain\usernamer)

    Thanks!

    If you are using Remote Desktop, tell the user to just type in there email address! much easier then getting them to remember the NetBIOS Name.

    Username@domain or/ Username@domain.sch.uk

    Yeah It should work, we have some people who can never remember to do DOMAIN\ so just say type in your email address or/ the NetBIOS Version which is a bit easier as it's just what ever your local domain is called.

    If you're using remote desktop in windows 7 under Options can you not fill in the username section to domain\username? so it only asks for the password. You could go as far as remembering credentials if you so wish.
