I was at my computer when the desktop appearance and taskbar changed. I immediately opened task manager to see what program might have caused this and didn't see anything out of the ordinary. Then about 2 minutes later my desktop changed back to what it normally is. I then went and disabled remote desktop connections... I think that someone may have accessed my pc remotely, buy I wasn't able to catch them at it. Is there any way to review incoming remote desktop connections historically?
Our office has three networked computers. 2 xp pro desktops and 1 xp media edition laptop. When I set up Access to work with all three I found somewhere that said that xp media has to have a password for that configuration. I'm hoping that was wrong. We backup from the Laptop (Media) to a desktop (XP) and it is currently requiring a passwordThe 2nd destop does not need a password to use shared folders on the main computer. The laptop (media) asks for a password the first time I try to connect to the main computer. I'd like to eliminate the need for a password. I have double checked the settings for gpedit.msc and the "limit local account use of blank passwords" is disabled
I have an existing VPN tunnel from my branch office to corporate.I want to allow my employees to establish a VPN connection to our local branch office where we have a local server, and not go through the corporate office.Can I set up a direct VPN connection to my router/ firewall at the branch office, even when there is a VPN tunnel already connected between my office and corporate?

having recently downloaded a bandwidth monitor widget, i notice that something is sending 1.625kb of data, OVER AND OVER. i am experiencing zero issues with my pc functionality, but am concerned about what is sending data out from my pc.in desperation, i tried a 3rd party firewall, zonealarm. even after installing it, the data continues to be sent. i have looked through my running processes, ending several auto-updaters, closed my browser and anything else i can think of that might use my internet.
On connecting VPN, i am getting this warning: Enabling VPN connection will block all traffic that doesn't get sent to this peer. After Yes, it stops all browsing. I want to access internet plus vpn connection.

Just recently we replaced our HQ Cisco-Pix with Cisco-ASA 5510. where we have many branches connecting to our HQ through site-to-site vpn. Since putting this new ASA5510 at HQ , while we are getting a Remote-Desktop session into our branches clients, and at the time when even a single TIMEOUT occurs on the vpn-link so the remote-desktop session gets completely lost. then we have to re-connect the session.This issue happens as i said above when a single timeout occurs on the vpn link. What is the issue with the ASA5510. because with pix we didn't have this issue, remote-desktops were never getting lost / reset with single timeout

I have a problem connecting to VPS with Windows XP Remote Desktop Connection.The error I'm getting is:"Remote Desktop Disconnected - The remote connection has timed out. Please try connecting to the remote computer again."I am not behind any network, firewall, router...I tried to turn off firewall and antivirus programs to see if they are blocking it. It didn't work.I could find from Microsoft support site refer to the server side configuration. But I know problem isn't with server, because I am able to connect from another PC (notebook running windows 7 with wireless connection).

I want to connect via windows rdp to computer outside the company office and I cannot do that since we have webwasher or proxy installed in the office.I can access this machine with IE (it is a server with open port 80) and I see its website. This is becuase the IE at office has proxy configured correctly.I cannot access the same machine with RDP connection, though. I can access it using other computer outsite the office, so it is not an issue that rdp is not enabled or so. Problem is with proxy at office.I need a way to connect to rdp by using the same proxy.Problem is that that IE at office uses automated proxy script (.pac).I have installed remote utilities server on the machine I want to access and the remote utilities viewer on the computer at office. I set the proxy similary to what is set in IE but I cannot connect anyway. I can connect this way from third computer outside the office though, so the configuration is fine, only proxy is the problem.I managed to get the proxy details like host name and port but I'm not sure those are the right one.The webwasher or proxy is mcafee web gateway 6.8.4.
