Configure Remote Control of Remote Desktop Services Sessions


You can monitor the actions of a client logged on to an RD Session Host server by using remote control from another session. Remote control allows you to either observe or actively control a client session. If you choose to actively control a client session, you will be able to input keyboard and mouse actions to the session. You can warn a client that you want to remotely control their session by choosing to display a message on the client that asks permission to view or take part in the session.

Configuring remote control on a per connection basis affects all sessions that use the connection. By default, remote control is not allowed.

You can configure remote control on a per user basis by using the Remote Desktop Services Extension to the Local Users and Groups snap-in or to the Active Directory Users and Computers snap-in.

Remote control settings configured by using Remote Desktop Session Host Configuration will take precedence over the remote control settings that have been configured for a specific user account.

To disable remote control sessions, select Do not allow remote control.


To specify remote control settings for the connection, select Use remote control with the following settings. To require user permission before the remote control session is enabled, select the Require users permission check box and then select one of the following options:


To only allow the remote control session to view the remote session, click View the session.


To allow the remote control session to interact with the remote session, click Interact with the session.


Click OK. Changes to remote control settings are not applied to sessions that are connected when the change is made. The changes will take effect the next time the user establishes a new connection to the RD Session Host server.
