Have you ever wanted to enable RDP remotely on a windows xp remote system ?

You can connect to the remote registry using regedit and change the fDenyTSConnection value from 1 to 0 under

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal

this would enable RDP on the destination computer.

For some administrators, you might want to roll this setting out to active directory clients.

You can push this registry file out silently using the following reg file

——————————————————————————————————

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server]

“fDenyTSConnections”=dword:00000000

——————————————————————————————————

running regedit silently:

regedit /s rdp.reg

Resetting TCP/IP in Windows XP February 16, 2009

I have recently gotten a problem on my laptop, where I get this message

“the network location cannot be reached. for information about network troubleshooting, see windows help”

when accessing network shares.

Sometimes TCP/IP Stack gets corrupted. Since this is a core part of the OS, reinstallation is not possible.

However you can reset the TCP/IP stack using this command.

netsh int ip reset c:\reset.txt

This will reset the TCP/IP stack in windows XP.
