HOW TO: Use the Terminal Services Remote Control Feature

This step-by-step article describes how to use the Remote Control feature in Windows Terminal Services.

Using the Remote Control feature in Windows Terminal Services allows authorized users to interact with other users’ sessions. A common use for Remote Control might be in helpdesk scenarios.

Check the following items when you are using the Remote Control feature in Terminal Services:

Verify User Permissions

Verify that the user has permission to initiate Remote Control. Administrators, by default, can use Remote Control with other users’ sessions. Users do not have this right. To give specific rights for groups other than Administrators:

  1. Start the Terminal Services Configuration tool.
  2. Double-click the connection you want to modify.
  3. Click the Permissions tab.
  4. Click Advanced, and then click Add.
  5. Specify the user or group you want to add so the user or group can use Remote Control.
  6. After adding the user or group, the Permission Entry dialog box appears. Click to select the Allow column for Remote Control.
  7. Click OK.
  8. Click OK, and then click OK.

Remote Control from the Console

Remote Control does not work from the console. This behavior is by design.

To initiate a Remote Control session:

  1. Open a Terminal Server Client session to the Terminal Server.
  2. When the session is running, start Terminal Services Manager.
  3. Connect to the server on which the user is logged on.
  4. Right-click the user’s name, and then click Remote Control.
  5. By default, the user is prompted to accept the Remote Control session. When the user accepts your request you can interact with the user’s environment.

Remote Control Console Session

You cannot remotely control the session labeled Console. This behavior is by design.

Remote Control with Similar Client Protocols

Remote Control only works with similar client protocols. Microsoft Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) can only remotely control other RDP clients.

Using Suggested Edits between Microsoft® Word and Google Docs

A few weeks ago we launched Suggested Edits in Google Docs–a way to make edits that can be accepted or rejected by the owner of the document.

We know that some of you work with people who still use Word, so starting today any tracked changes in a .docx file will be automatically carried over to Docs as Suggested Edits. Once you’ve imported your changes, you can begin immediately collaborating with your colleagues in real-time.

Google Drive Update to Protect Shared Links

We recently received a report via our Vulnerability Reward Program of a security issue affecting a small subset of file types in Google Drive and have since made an update to address it. Please refer to the post on the Google Online Security blog for details.

Calendar GData API / Google Calendar Connectors Deprecation

Back in November 2011, we announced the deprecation of the Calendar GData API (v1, v2) when theAPIv3 was made available. We’ll now be shutting down these older versions on November 17, 2014.

Any service dependent on the Calendar GData API (v1, v2), such as the Google Calendar Connectors (GCC), will no longer work as intended. GCC users should update to use Calendar Interop or their own custom built connectors that sync with v3 of the API.

Unlimit your business with Google Drive for Work

Today at Google I/O we announced Google Drive for Work—a new premium offering for businesses that includes unlimited storage, advanced audit reporting and new security controls.

Key features:

  • unlimited storage for all employees, including files up to 5 TB in size
  • new audit reporting so admins can see activity like moving, deleting or sharing files within or outside the company, plus an audit API that makes this data available to developers
  • new security controls so admins can set sync client, offline, Drive app and add-on settings at the Organizational Unit (OU)-level
  • includes Google Apps Vault, which has been expanded to provide search for all content stored in Drive

We’re also happy to announce that all files uploaded to Google Drive will now be encrypted for all users (consumer and Google Apps alike) — so your content is encrypted not only from your device to Google and in transit between Google data centers, but also at rest on Google servers.

Google Drive for Work is now available for new and existing Google Apps for Business customers for $10/user/month, under a new SKU called Google Apps Unlimited.

A faster, redesigned Google Drive

A faster, redesigned Google Drive

Google Drive will have a new look and speedier performance on the desktop, making organizing and sharing files faster and easier than ever. Users can now right click on a file to see recent activity, set sharing permissions, and enable files to be accessed while offline. When selecting multiple files, users can take actions on the entire group in three ways—right click on the selection, use the menu above the file area, or simply drag the group to move to a new folder location.

This new version is rolling out progressively to rapid release domains, who can opt-in and try the new features and interface. Scheduled release domains will be able to opt-in soon. The plan is to rollout the new Drive interface to everyone in the near future.

Introducing Google Apps Vault for Drive

Vault’s robust functionality now includes another data source—Drive—so that organizations can find even more business-critical content. Vault for Drive comes at no additional cost for Vault customers and works with existing Drive content in users’ accounts. Postini customers transitioning to Vault will also be able to use Vault for Drive at no additional cost once the transition is complete.

With Vault for Drive, organizations can search for specific users’ Drive files (including both Google documents and other stored files), preview search results in Vault to make sure customers find just what they need and create copies of search results and export them for future use.

Setting retention policies, creating holds, and conducting domain-wide searches for Drive content are not available at this time.
