I work in an office that has Windows XP loaded on all computers. I am in charge of doing the updates on all of these computers and I was wondering if using Remote Desktop connections would be a way that I could tap into each persons machine and do this or even troubleshoot. It would sure save me time running around to everyone's desk. I have tried setting it up on a computer and it doesn't seem to work... i can get into our server just fine but that is it.
The first step I was instructed was to go into System Properties to the Remote tab. Put a checkmark in the box that says allow users to remotely connect to this computer (to be done on all other computers). Then select remote users. When I click on Add in that screen it brings me to another screen with Object types, location that sort of thing and I am lost. I can't search for myself on it at all. Now the location I notice is just that computer rather than the domain if this matters.
Anyways, any help anyone can provide would be appreciated. Or perhaps there is a different method.
