Ping Doesnt Work Until Remote Desktop Connection Is Made

Nov 14, 2007

I have a remote XP PC: OpenVPN connection with route added for to go via the VPN

Now on the other end the network consists of:

I have a OpenVPN server inside the lan on
Its default gateway is

I have 3 Windows Servers,, 247 and 248. All gateways are set to

I have a ethernet router on the network,, it has a route added for to go via, and route added for to go via also). the is incase any other LANs are connected at a later date, if computers saw any packets not on the the 192.168.2.x subnet they would be routed to the default gateway which would then pass them to the OpenVPN router.

The trouble is, i can remotely connect and ping to the OpenVPN router fine and also the ethernet router, however when i ping any of the Windows boxes it times out. But i can open up Remote Desktop and connect to the windows box without problem, infact if i am running 'ping -t' it will suddenly come alive but only after the RDP connection is made.

Is this something funny with the routing? I want to keep the OpenVPN server internal to the network and i appreciate it is hitting the ethernet router then being passed to the OpenVPN but something is weird as it fires up RDP fine but not ping. No firewalls are enabled on any of the boxes. If i log into ssh on the OpenVPN router or ethernet router i can ping from that to the windows boxes fine.

Its as if a ICMP redirect is issued, and all is well after the 1st connection. Not too sure but could anyone be kind enough to enlighten me?

Remote Desktop Connection

Oct 27, 2009

I signed up for a windows VPS.

The directions I recieved were "Please use remote desktop to connect to your server."

So I entered the ip address into the remote desktop connection window and it doesn't connect. Where do I go from here? I searched and can't find any relevant info.

Windows And Linux Remote Desktop Connection

May 25, 2009

I know we can get remote Desktop connection only on those servers based on Windows 2003 OS or Windows 2008 OS.

But what about Linux? Can I have such remote desktop connection on CentOS 5?

Another question is, what is nxclient?

Im bit confused. Can I get remote desktop connection of Linux OS ( CentOS ) on my Windows XP by using this software?

My Screen Is Too Wide For "Remote Desktop Connection

Dec 17, 2007

I am trying to access my server remotely using Windows' Remote Desktop Connection. It functions perfectly, but it does not go full screen because my local screen res is 1680x1050 ...

Does anyone know any other remote desktop applications which work better in this way?

I know I could just change the local res settings but it is a bit of a nuisance and looks really weird if I set it to something non-wide-screen...

Webalizer Doesnt Work Using EnsimPro X

Mar 11, 2007

After migrating from the old ensim to the new "X", everything is working fine, except for the webalizer, I activated webalizer in one domain a few days ago.. and everyday Im trying to see the webalizer information, and it is always displaying this message:

Could not retrieve the requested site report because the Web server logs have not yet been generated. These are generated once a day. Please check again later.

I also tried forcing the log rotating for that site, but the problem still there.

Server is RHES 4 with EnsimPro X, log generation and webalizer is activated for the domain.

Monit + Qmail Alerts Doesnt Work

May 9, 2007

I configured monit to send me email alerts when apache is using too many resources but I cannot receive email alerts. I use Qmail.
As for syslog, there is this message:

monit[6473]: Sendmail: error receiving data from the mailserver 'localhost' -- Resource temporarily unavailable

I tried to add for server name the name used in MX record but with the same result.
Btw: other things configured in cron (eg. RKHUNTER) send me alerts OK.

Installed Apache Can Access Via LAN IP + Localhost But WAN IP Doesnt Work

Oct 30, 2008

I'm on windows vista. I've got an SDSL line into the house with a dedicated IP 62.etc. I've then got a Prestige 791R and all PC's plugged in to that. I've also got a wireless router for my Wii set up.

Basically I've set up this DHCP thingy to start at 192.etc.3 and the Wireless router is at 192.etc.1 and the Prestige is at 192.etc.2 my pc is at 192.etc.9

This is about where my knowledge stops unfortunately.

I have installed apache as the most basic default install I think you can and it seems to be working absolutely fine. I'm assuming I could also install PHP and MySQL etc and wouldn't have too much of a problem, however, my friend cannot seem to access the environment from the WAN IP and when I type in my WAN IP I get the prestige router's control panel.

I read somewhere that I needed to forward port 80, now I can 'open' ports in the prestige control panel but I did try opening port 80 in the control panel and pointing it to my LAN IP (92.etc.9) but it didn't seem to work.

I'm at a bit of a loss so if anyone could point me in the right direction I would be most grateful, just to clarify:

//localhost loads the html file 100%
//192.etc.9 loads the html file 100%
//62.WANIP internally loads my prestige routers control panel
//62.WANIP externally does not load a page (cannot be found)

If you need any more info just let me know and I'll get it.

Forwarding/Default+POP3 Addy Doesnt Work - Piping/Webmail Works

Sep 13, 2007

My server which runs cPanel (license issued touchsupport) is having problems with handling emails.

I use an external DNS provider ( only for this 1 particular domain for handling many Records and such. Through their panel, I have added my mail server's record, i.e. "mailserver.tld".

Now there is a problem with one part of the email issue. I have email piping setup and 1 webmail account setup too. These two work flawlessly. No issues with them. But email forwarding and default address doesn't work.

I am confident that the email settings are working right because, when my clients send an email, piping works and my support system creates a new ticket. But the email forwarding/Default EMail doesn't.

Not just that, I cannot even connect to the webmail account I created via POP3. I 100% sure that I used the correct login credentials and also tried the "+" and ":" for the username part. Just doesn't work. But I can access and read my emails via the Webmail (squirrelmail).

Please help me out with this as soon as possible.

Can't Connect To Remote Desktop

Dec 14, 2008

I signed up for a Win2k3 VPS account with 3dgwebhosting. I'm a newbie to Plesk and win2k3 so I spent the first day getting head around Plesk.

I then logged into Remote Desktop only to find someone else had beat me. They'd hacked in and downloaded a mass email client, email stripper and obviously sent out spam from a 2mb text file of email addresses.

I didn't spend long in Remote Desktop, but while there I switched on Windows Firewall, changed my admin login password and logged off.
Now, 24 hours later, I can't get back in. I get the error - This computer can't connect to the remote computer. Try again.....

I can still login through Plesk, FTP and ExpressionWeb.

Is FW keeping me out of RD or has the hacker returned?

Recurring Remote Desktop

May 7, 2008

I recently got a Windows VPS to run a few applications 24/7. I generally login to the VPS during the day, via Remote Desktop, to review these applications..

However, I frequently have issues. Sometimes, I forget to log out and I will be terminated with a "the remote computer terminated the connection" and then I won't be able to re-login to the VPS. Sometimes I click the X on the Remote Desktop and then when I try to re-connect, I get the same error. Once I got the error "the remote connection has timed out. please try re-connecting to the remote computer again "

And the worse part is that the Remote Desktop can't be restarted alone.. my host has to restart my Windows every time - so my applications go down.

Is it me or is the VPS not supposed to act like this? Why is Remote Desktop so touchy?

I was told by the host that I should always use the Log Off.. however, if I do then Windows says that it will close all my applications.. I don't get any option to Log Off without closing the apps.. so I have to end up using the X.

Dedicated Server With Remote Desktop

May 30, 2009

I am hoping to find a dedicated server with the following specs or similar...

Processor: 3.00GHz or 1.8GHz Dual Core
RAM: 1-3GB
Hard Drive: 20-50GB (Yes, I realize most dedicated servers don't have drives this small.)
Windows preferable
Remote Desktop Access
30 GB Bandwidth

I plan to use this for running autoclickers and that sort of thing so that I don't need to worry about them on my PC. If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know! I realize this is an odd request.

Remote Desktop And File Transfer

Nov 8, 2008

I want to set up my desktop to be kind of a database. So I can access all my files on my home desktop, from school. (and be able to back up all my files on my reliable desktop as opposed to my not so reliable lappy)

Then the next thing I wanted to do is to be able to access my desktop using remote access. So I can control everything on my desktop, while I'm not there.

My laptop is running Vista Home Premium, I dont think that matters too much. But my desktop is running XP Home Edition.

I have a no-ip account. but I dont really know what my next step would be, I'm guessing to make a sort of FTP on my desktop? and I have NO clue how I'd do the remote desktop.

HiJackThis Broke Remote Desktop

Mar 20, 2007

I ran Hijack this and fixed a few errors it listed in a Windows 2003 Server. I rebooted the server, but now when I attempt to login via remote desktop it logs in, but then immediately logs me out.

I am guessing HiJackThis deleted a required dll or .exe needed for Terminal Services. Do you guys have any idea how I can restore this, and undo what hijackthis did?

Remote Desktop Suddenly Stopped Working

Jan 28, 2008

I have a server that I access through remote desktop. Suddenly I am getting the message "Remote Desktop Disconnected: The computer can't connect to the remote computer." when using Remote Desktop.

It was working a few minutes ago.

A while ago I suspected that someone knew the password for the box. I did change it at the time, and thought the issue was solved. Is it possible to turn off remote desktop remotely (whilst using remote desktop).

Power cycling the server isn't making any difference.

Any other options other than putting in a support request at the host?
