Edit RDP Settings for WHS Site? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am running WHS on my home network. All of my client computers are Windows 7. Whenever I remote access into them (via the WHS Website), Aero functionality and desktop wallpaper are not enabled. Is there a way to edit the RDP settings for the WHS website so it can run those settings (similar to going to MSTSC and selecting the LAN Experience Settings)?

  • Unfortunately I don't believe it's possible to do what you want. Windows Home Server uses a Remote Desktop proxy to allow you access to your home computers, and that proxy (i.e. your server) is where rendering is occurring. Since your server is running an OS that doesn't support Aero, Aero isn't rendered.

    You could always submit a product suggestion on Connect, however.

    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
