Smartcard cannot be forwarded to Terminal Server via RDP

Try re-registering the services on the client computer and see if that fixes it. Otherwise I would consider reinstalling Windows on the client.

VPN in Microsoft Server 2003

The full form of VPN is Virtual Private Network. VPN gives extremely secure connections between private networks linked through the Internet. It allows remote computers to act as though they were on the same secure, local network. Allows you to be at home and access your company's computers in the same way as if you were sitting at work.

Almost impossible for someone to tap or interfere with data in the VPN tunnel. If you have VPN client software on a laptop, you can connect to your company from anywhere in the world. VPN goes between a computer and a network (client-to-server), or a LAN and a network using two routers (server-to-server). Each end of the connection is a VPN "endpoint", the connection between them is a "VPN tunnel".

When one end is a client, it means that computer is running VPN client software. You can use a virtual private network (VPN) to connect components to one network by using another network. VPN do this by "tunneling" through the Internet or another public network. With a VPN, connections across the public network can transfer data by using the routing infrastructure of the Internet, but to the user, the data seems to travel over a dedicated private link.

A VPN gives you the benefit of a dial-up connection to a dial-up server, plus the flexibility of an Internet connection. Using an Internet connection you can connect to resources all over the world. If you have a high-speed Internet connection at your computer and at your office, you can communicate with your office at full Internet speed. This is much faster than any dial-up connection that uses an analog modem.

VPNs use authenticated links to make sure that only authorized users can connect to your network, and they use encryption to make sure that others cannot intercept and cannot use data over the Internet. A Tunneling Protocol is a technology that helps make the transfer of information over the Internet more secure from one computer to another.

VPN technology also permits a corporation to connect to its branch offices or to other companies over a public network, such as the Internet, while helping to maintain secure communications. The VPN connection across the Internet logically operates as a dedicated wide area network (WAN) link.

VPN in Windows 2003 Server: You need a high speed Internet connection to configure and run VPN server. Two individual lan card must be present in a single system where you want to configure a VPN Server. The lan cards should ping each other. Also need a User which's Dial in allow access should be enable. Microsoft 2003 server two tunnelling protocols for a secure VPN connection, one is PPTP (Point-to-Point Tunnelling Protocol) which Provides data encryption using Microsoft Point-to-Point Encryption. The other is L2TP (Layer Two Tunnelling Protocol) which Provides data encryption, authentication, and integrity using IPSec.

Steps to create VPN Server in 2003 Server: At first I go to Start and point to Administrative Tools, then click Routing and Remote Access. Then I click the server icon that matches the local server name in the left panel of the console. If the Routing and Remote Access service was previously turn on, you may want to reconfigure the server.

To reconfigure the server Right-click the server object, and then click Disable Routing and Remote Access. Click yes to continue when you are prompted with an informational message. Then Right-click the server icon and then click configure and Enable Routing and Remote Access to start the Routing and Remote Access Server Setup Wizard. After that click Remote access (dial-up or VPN) to turn on remote computers to dial in or connect to this network through the Internet. Then I have Click to select VPN. In the VPN Connection window I click the network interface (Lan) which is connected to the Internet and go the IP Address Assignment window, then I click Automatically because there was present a DHCP server in network. However, if DHCP is not available, you must specify a range of static addresses.

If you use from a specified range of addresses, open the Address Range Assignment dialog box and Type the first IP address in the range of addresses that you want to use in the Start IP address box. Type the last IP address in the range in the End IP address box. Windows calculates the number of addresses automatically. After that I have accept the default setting of No, use Routing and Remote Access to authenticate connection request and finally Click Finish to turn on the Routing and Remote Access service and to configure the server as a Remote Access server.
For the remote access server to forward traffic properly inside your network, you must configure it as a router with either static routes or routing protocols, so that all of the locations in the intranet are reachable from the remote access server. It also need for security purpose.<SPAN style="LINE-HEIGHT: 115%; FONT-FAMILY: 'Verdana','sans-serif

Cannot use WinXP System File Checker (SFC), RPC Server?

Are you trying this in safe mode?
Sometimes the RPC service will refuse to start. Assuming all other services are reset to their default values:

Start, run, CMD

net start (check the service again to be sure it is stopped)

net start rpcss
net start (check again)

if no joy, you need to use the XP CD to go to the Recovery Console.

From the Recovery Console type:


reboot the machine.

"Could not start the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) Service. Error 1058" error message when you manually start the Remote Procedure Call service

Some general things to try.

See if System Restore will get you back to a restore point before your problem with Explorer.

Try Safe Mode (Do you have this problem in Safe Mode?).

Try running ChkDsk to check your drive for errors. Right-click your Drive icon/ Properties/ Tools/ Error Checking. Select both boxes.

Run the System File Checker program from the Run Box by typing.....Sfc /Scannow in it and have your XP CD handy.

Too much memory consumption

Ok. First of all, what Windows version you have?

Second, to ease up your problems, let us start by cleaning up the system. Yes it is a new installation, but there are stuff that you can remove that won't harm your system and it will ease up the pressure.

This will be a long file, so hold your breath.

Firstly, assuming that you have administrator access, or your account is Computer Administrator, click start, click run and type 'services.msc'.

Now if you are opening this for the first time, i will look confusing. Simply look at the bottom of the window, you will see Extended and Standard. Choose Extended.

The following list is what you need to disable.
Simply right click on and click properties, and click the drop down box and click disable.

All of these services can be safely stopped with no adverse effects on your system, except for a faster boot up, and a better performance.

Alerter(Notifies selected users and computers of administrative alerts)
Application Layer Gateway Service(Internet Connection Sharing)
Automatic Updates(Unbelieveable.... Takes up lots of space and resources)
Backgroung Intelligent Transfer Service(Uses idle bandwidth to transfer data)
Clipbook(This is not needed)
Computer Browser(Used to view other computers on a network)
Distributed Transaction Coordinator(This is not needed)
DNS Client(Resolves and caches DNS)
Error Reporting Service(Sends reports to Microsoft)
Help and Support(Enables Help and Support Center - Should not be needed)
Human Interface Device Access(Enables generic input access to HID)
Indexing Service(ndexes contents and properties of files)
IMAPI CD-Burning COM Service(Used for burning CD's, i am sure you have Nero)
Internet Connection Firewall (ICF) / Internet Connection Sharing (ICS)
Messenger(Annoying popup messages once on internet)
Net Logon(Supports pass-through authentication of account logon events)
Netmeeting Remote Desktop Sharing(Enables an authorized user to access this computer remotely)
Remote Desktop Help Session Manager(Manages and controls Remote Assistance)
Remote Procedure Call (RPC) Locator(RPC name service database)
Remote Registry(Used to modify registry settings on this computer)
System Restore Service(Performs system restore functions)
TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper(This is Not Needed)
Telephony(Support for programs that control telephony devices and IP connections)
Telnet(Enables a remote user to log on to this computer)
Terminal Services(Multiple Users connected to PC)
Themes(Provides user experience theme management)
Uninteruptible Power Supply(Manages a UPS)
Upload Manager(Manages synchronous and asynchronous file transfers)
Wireless Zero Configuration(Provides automatic configuration for the 802.11 adapters)
Workstation(Creates and maintains client network connections to remote servers)


Ok. When you are done, restart your pc.

When it has booted back up, go to my computer and right click on the hard drive you are using.... all of them... and click properties, then click 'Disk Cleanup'

Let the thing load and then tick all of the fields by clicking on them. Then click ok.

Let it run through. Do this on all hard drives.

Next, and hopefully what will cause a drastic change, your pagefile.

Right click on My Computer and click Properties, click on the Advanced tab and click on the first Settings button under Performance. A window will pop up and you will see Visual Effects. Click Adjust for best Performance, which is the 3rd Tab. Then, click apply. Let it do its thing, then click advanced and at the bottom, you will see Change. Click that.

If you have 2 drives on your computer, or 1 drive split in 2 or more, that will be great.

Simply choose the 2nd drive, once it is not the main one, and click custom size. Depending on the space empty on the drive, type 2000 in both boxes. Then click set. Then go to your main drive which should be "C:" and click No Paging File. Then click set.

Ok. Now, finally coming to easing up your hard drive space.

Go here and search for ATF Cleaner.

Download it, its free and when it is done, click Select All and then click Empty Selected. Let it do its thing and reboot your pc afterwards. See if you notice a change in the system performance.

Now this part is tricky. You need to go into your main drive, c: and click tools>folder options, click view and tick everything in there, except Hide protected operating system files (Recommended). Also, click Show hidden files.

Then, look for hidden folders with names like "17c362e648ec4aa3e30187024666a5c3" and so on. Delete them, then reboot...

That is the best that i can do for you now...

Hope you see some changes....

Oh...Do a defrag now and then...

Right click your drive, click properties and click tools
Then click Defrag....

Hope this hands are tired now....Laters....

Problem with Remote Desktop

On an XP client you can only have one person logged at a time.  This is different on M$ Sever 2000 and up where you can have multiple log ons.  There no way to do this this with M$ RD - However you can achive what you are after by using  third party RD software such as Real VNC There is a free client (which i use to access mac's & win machines) or if you prefer ssh etc it is quite cheap for the full version.
