Splashtop Remote Desktop

Posted · Report post

This is a program that I have running on my Win7 desktop right now that allows me access from my ASUS transfromer tablet (Android 3.2). Wondering if anyone has tried this on a WHS2011 box as a remote head?

I am in the process of building my first WHS and am just thinking out loud.

How did the install go? Are you using the HD version or the standard one? Was there any gymnastics involved to get it on the WHS box?

I also have this running on a Win7 Pro PC, as well as my WHS2011 PC. Access from my VZW Galaxy Nexus works great!! No issues with the install, or with any part of the program or OS.

This is my first WHS install so I have no idea how to install this as an add in. Do I have to put a monitor on the whs box to install. I can 't seem to do it from the dashboard.

You have this running on the server itself right? I have it working on my Win7 PC fine but wanted to use this as a way of having a head on the server.

Can you give me some more detail on exactly how to get this on the addins panel? I have the .exe on the server in the documents folder right now.

Got it installed this weekend. Did end up needing a head on the WHS to do the install and then it runs like its on a PC. doesn't show up in the add ins window. Just runs and works!

Out of curiosity, could you have installed it via RDC? This is how I've been installing add-ins so far and it's worked just fine. I just connect to the server via the RDC client on my Win7 laptop and voila! instant desktop.

I have been using my Transformer to remote into my WHS for a while. Seems to work fine although I do find the touch-screen interface a bit tricky when accessing certain thinks like lights-out settings. I just use it if I want to check something on the server from my living room so I don't need to go to my office. However if I want to do something serious I prefer to have keyboard and mouse access from a PC.

      Woke this morning to a message that one of the folders in Music had already been shared and did I want to replace that with the current request. So said yes. It churned for another 15 minutes or so and then came back and said everything is now shared. So I'll test writing something to that folder structure when I get home tonight. Any thoughts on the certificate error when using RDP on the same network?

      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.
