Remote Access To Home Premium Hack

1 post in this topic

Posted · Report post

I thought I was upto the challenge of configuring things so I can remote access my Win7 Home Premium from WHS. Yes I know that Home does not have RDP, but that is easily resolved with this http://thegreenbutto...ms/t/79427.aspx. I am able to remote into my PC without issue from Win7 and XP PC's once I ran that. So that is working.

Next step is to trick WHS (SP2) to thinking that the PC is capable of RDP. Through some troubleshooting I was able to figure out that if I change the registry entry below WHS thinks it is capable. Granted this gets refreshed often a simple scheduled batch file will keep that setting.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows Home Server\Transport\Clients\the client entry----->from there I edit the TerminalServicesSupport key to "DS" versus "OS"

So now WHS shows that my PC is capable, but is states "Connection disabled"

One thing that I researched was if my RDP was configured correctly in the Home Premium PC. With this article, http://www.technize....-and-windows-7/ I confirmed my settings are correct. Additionally considering I am remote into it from both XP and Win7 this should be set correctly.

So this is where I am stuck and since I have commited myself to this hack I have to finish it. By all mean the time I have invested will far outway the $100 upgrade to Pro, but that is not why we do stuff like this.

Any suggestions?

    • WHoSeBox - Use your WHS like dropbox
      By stigzler · Posted
      Hi folks. Just thought I'd share a little app I made. It lets you use your WHS like dropbox - with public shares + link grabbing from explorer. I'm a hobby coder - so don't expect watertight - but think it's working OK - any probs just let me know. Check it here: https://whosebox.codeplex.com/

      Thanks for your reply! Ah, that issue. I was thinking of using a modded BIOS though, which HP wont support lol, but the network card not working is news to me. Besides, I am strongly considering to pay a bit more and go for a Gen8 instead.

      Have shut down the RDP session and re-connected.  Using the host machine's name I still get the message back that the Server isn't switched on, not my network, etc. etc.  Tried again with the IP address and once again I get the warning that the certificate isn't from a trusted source, but at least I can still get an RDP session and the Sharing dialog box is still churning some 20 minutes since I kicked it off (for the 3rd time at least today).  So, would be nice to know why I have this certificate error too???  and how to fix it ;-)

      Don't.. HP has poor support, and there's lots of compatibility issues with N54l.

      Flashing the bios requires permission from HP before you can even download it, luckily i found another download link, but even after updating the bios, the network card still does not work with Windows.

      Also having issues with RDP.  But having changed the client connection from using the PC's name to it's static IP I got an error message about the certificate not being from a trusted source.  Ignoring the warning and continuing to connect allowed me to gain a connection from my laptop and then typing "certificate" into the Settings search box got me a tool that allowed me to drag n drop the RDP certificate into the Trusted Root folder.  I'm hoping that'll help with all my connections now but I don't know and don't currently want to shut this RDP session down until performing a few tasks whilst I still can. I have now managed to share out my Software folder on the Server.  Yippee!  But the Music folder sharing is still churning away.  I can only guess it's down to the fact that there are 544 folders & 5265 files???
