Installing Remote Desktop, Remotely

Have you ever needed to connect to a PC using Remote Desktop to either check something out or to install a better remote connectivity software like VNC? A couple years ago, IntelliAdmin created an application to install remote desktop from a remote PC. I’ve used it several times and it has come in quite handy. Download it at http://www.intelliadmin.com.

Windows 7 at the PDC?

For my purposes, I’ve setup Routing and Remoting Access on a Windows Server 2003 box (Windows Server 2008 procedure). This is pretty simple to do and there weren’t any settings I needed to modify. Then, on the user account in my domain, I had to right-click and go to properties. There is … Continue reading Establishing a VPN on Windows Mobile 5

Apple Sneaking Safari download on QuickTime Users?

I have QuickTime installed on my PC. I just noticed that Apple is now trying to get users to download Safari using their Apple Software Update software. It’s checked by default but as you can see from the photo below, I decided not to install it. It’s interesting that they’re trying to force it down to user’s.
