I am able to connect to my remote desktop to get to my work terminal; however, after a few minutes it logs me off/closes all applications completely and I have to type my password and open all my applications again. I am also using a D-Link wireless router. Why is this happening?

Try to assign a static IP address to each of your computers on the network. Its better to start at 192.168.1.151, 152 and 153 so on. These numbers are beyond normal dynamic IP Addresses! Then identify each computer with their IP Address then log on remote with their IP addresses! as administrator!
First you'll need to make sure that remote access is enabled on the server.
1. Log into the server and open the start menu
2. In the search box type in "remote settings" without the quotes and hit enter
3. In the bottom section of the window that pops up, make sure that the option that says "Allow connections from computers running any version of Remote Desktop (less secure)" is selected.
4. If you make any changes, hit the Apply button
5. While you have this window open, click the Computer Name tab and write down the text that appears are "Full computer name:" You'll need this to connect to the server.
You'll also need an RDP program for your iPhone. If you are looking for a free RDP app, I recommend Remote Desktop Lite - RDP by MochaSoft. Once you've downloaded and installed the RDP program on your iPhone, open it and follow the directions below to get connected to your server.
1. Tap the connect option on the app's main screen
2. On the next screen tap on the "New..." option
3. You might get a popup about needing the computer name or IP address, just hit ok
4. Tap on PC address and enter the name you wrote down in the earlier steps.
5. Leave PC Port alone
6. In the PC User cell, enter the user name you use when logging into the server
7. In the PC Password cell, enter the password for the user that you entered in the previous step.
8. Leave Mac Address along
9. Enter a name for the connection if you want to. This will be the name that you see on subsequent uses of the program.
10. The rest of the settings are optional, so you can play around with them to see what they do.
11. Once you're done, tap the back button on the upper left corner of the screen. You'll be taken back one screen and see the connection that you just set up. Tap it and the connection will launch.
I assume you want to log into your pc from another pc outside your lan. To do this you need to forward port 3389 to your pc.
Make sure your pc (the one you want to connect to) has a static ip address. Also, it should have a password on the windows account you use.
In the router, forward port 3389 (tcp) to the ip address of the pc.
If you do this correctly, you can go to any pc outside your lan, and use remote desktop connection to connect. When you start the remote desktop connection, put in the wan ip address of your lan. If you did the port forwarding correctly, you will be asked for a user name and password. Put in the username and password for your user account on the lan pc and voila! - you are logged into your lan pc remotely.
Let me know if this works, or if you need some more help.
Make sure you have wireless enabled on your router and on the laptop. For the router, on your desktop open a web browser. Type in 192.168.1.1 in the address bar. The default user name is blank and the password is admin. This will log you into your router. Once logged on, click on the wireless tab. Make sure that wireless is enabled and you have an SSID (also known as a Network ID). Also, make sure SSID broadcast is enabled. When this info is verified and set up you can close the web browser.
Now move to the laptop. Click once on the network icon on the taskbar (the 2 computer monitors by the clock). Select "Connect or disconnect..." When the window comes up, select your wireless connection.
Port forwarding is not the only thing that you have to enable to access your home network. Firstly do you just want to access your router from the outside? If that is the case enable remote login via the administration tab.
If you want to login to your computer from the outside then you must first enable remote desktop and enable port forwarding on your router.
You enable port forwarding for port 3389 which is the remote desktop port. So start port is 3389 and end port is 3389 after that set a static IP on your computer that you want to access.
You can enable remote desktop by following the directions below at the link '
After doing this. What you do is go to the status tab of your router. Look at the IP there.
On the remote computer lauch remote desktop and enter that IP then click connect. IT will then ask you for the username and password of the computer behind the router that you want to login to. After that you should be able to get in.
If you need any clarifications regarding this you may message me and id be glad to help.
It appears to me that you have everything plugged into the desktop PC. This is not the way that it should be done. Plug the cable modem into the wireless router via the Internet/WAN port. Plug your desktop PC into one of the ports numbered 1-4. Now connect to the router via the wireless connection for the router and you should be able to now connect to the internet with your laptop.
If it still does not work, power down everything in this order: Laptop, Desktop, Router, Cable Modem. Bring everthing up in the reverse order (Cable Modem, Router, Desktop, Laptop) waiting for each device to stablize before moving to the next.
Once you get everything working, turn on your wireless security (WPA not WEP) asap to keep your computers and surfing safe, and to keep intruders off your network.
You need to forward the remote desktop port to your server.
The Remote Desktop port is 3389. Go to the port forwarding section of your router and find out your Server's network IP address and assign it to forward the Remote Desktop port of "3389". Save your changes and try connecting again.

Remote Login Names and Passwords
During a remote login, the device prompts you for a login name and password. You
can display the login name when logged in to the device from a remote console by
using a device status command.
Logging in Remotely or Locally
Logging in to a local console is the same as logging in to a remote console except
that you must connect to the device by starting Telnet on your host system. To log
in remotely, begin at step 1. To log in locally, begin at step 3.
To log in from a remote console:
1. Connect to the device by starting Telnet on your host system. Your host system
is the system to which remote terminals are connected.
2. Supply the device?s name or Internet Protocol (IP) address.
To use device names, your network must have a name server. Issue either the
device name or the IP address as shown in the following example:
% telnet brandenburg
% telnet 184.108.40.206
At this point, it makes no difference whether you have logged in remotely or
3. If you are prompted, enter your login name and password.
It is possible that there is a login and no password. The password controls
access to the device. If a password has not been set, press the Enter key at
the Password: prompt. Logins are not set automatically. For security, you can set
up user names and passwords using the add user command in the CONFIG
process. For additional information, see the add user configuration command,
on 56. Remember to reload or restart to activate any changes.
Note: If you do not enter a login name and valid password within 1 minute of
the initial prompt, or if you enter an incorrect password three times in
succession, the device drops the Telnet connection.
4. Press the Enter key to display the asterisk (*) prompt.
You may have to press the Enter key more than once or press Ctrl-P to obtain
the * prompt.
Once at this level, you can begin to enter commands from the keyboard. Press
the Backspace key to delete the last character typed in on the command line.
Press the Delete key or Ctrl-U to delete the whole command line entry so that
you can reenter a command. See ?Command Completion? on page 20 and
?Command History? on page 23 for more information.
You can also use local Telnet commands on your Telnet client to close the
