Enable Remote Desktop Connections on a remote PC

Sometimes you need to logon to a remote PC via RDP but the PC is not configured to allow remote connections. Instead of walking over to the machine and setting the needed configuration manually, you could enable RDP connections on the remote PC using regedit as follows:

  1. start regedit and connect to the remote PC’s registry (you need admin rights on the remote machine)
  2. set the value of key fDenyTSConnections under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server to 0
  3. delete the following keys under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\TermService\Parameters if they are set:
    • Certificate
    • X509 Certificate
    • X509 Certificate ID
  4. reboot the remote machine: shutdown -r -f -t 0 -m \\pcname

    This will be displayed in a monospaced font. The first four 
    spaces will be stripped off, but all other whitespace
    will be preserved.
    Markdown is turned off in code blocks:

To create not a block, but an inline code span, use backticks:

Here is some inline `code`.
