I don’t know why, but I keep forgetting how to enable remote desktop administration in Windows 2008 server, so I am writing it down here. Maybe, I keep forgetting, because it is so simple.

Bring up the System properties. The easiest way for me is to right mouse click on Computer and go to Properties.

From here, click on Remote Settings.

Chose either “Allow connections from computers running any version of “Remote Desktop (less secure)” or “Allow connections only from computers running Remote Desktop with Network Level Authentication (more secure).”
