Description
We are currently trying to control our pc from a remote location. We can control sitekiosk but want to login into the pc with another account for maintenance. We have to do this via remote desktop. Unfortunately, due to securtiy permissions we can't login remotely with the secured sitekiosk account. Is there a way to allow this?
When we try to logon with the administrator account, he automatically starts sitekiosk as shell. Can't we limit this to the secured account only? or is this due to a mistake we made? please contact me for more information.

Hello,

the remote desktop feature of Windows is not recommended for terminals that can be accessed while you are doing remote maintenance. Please use a program like VNC, e.g. www.realvnc.com, which is more powerful. With it you can securely log on to different users while blocking local user input.

Regards,
Thorsten Abdinghoff
