No Desktop Tab on Remote Access Page RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm able to log on to my WHS but do not have a tab displayed for computers.  I can see the shared files on the WHS but cannot see any of the PCs on my network.  The PCs are running Vista Ultimate, Vista Home Premium, or XP Media Center 2005.  Any idea what could be the problem?

  • Thanks.  That was the problem.  I traditionally use Firefox, but one i used IE, it worked fine.

  • Please use Internet Explorer (or a tool which embeds IE in another browser, such as IETab for Firefox) to access the Computers tab. The remote desktop functionality that allows you access to the server console uses an ActiveX control, and ActiveX is only supported in Internet Explorer.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
