    How to disable 30 sec wait time for Remote Desktop in windows 8


    I finally figured out my Wake on LAN issues for my HTPC with my recent upgrade to widows 8.

    Now my issue is how do I disable the 30 sec wait time for approval by currently logged in user when I try to establish a Remote Desktop connection?

    I have tried to change the settings in gpedit allowing admin access with out users permission but it doesn't seem to work in widows 8.

    Any other suggestions?

    Bump

    Anyone know why this happens when there is another user logged in?

    I don't have 30 seconds delay, it's instant, you must have a name resolution problem, use the ip address instead, but note that I'm on a domain

    EDIT; Wake on Land ????? I hope you understand if the HTPC is sleeping or shut down, it take a time to wake up or boot.

    Wake on LAN. Meaning I remotely turn on my computer through magic packets trough the router. I have it set that it logs directly into an open restricted account for use as a media player.

    When I want to remotely log in as admin to the admin account from my laptop it asks if I want to kick the currently active user I say yes and have to wait 30 sec or have the user approve me logging in and logging them out.

    I am trying to make it so I don't have to wait. That 30 sec.

    LOL, I know what is wake on lan, I guess you are not using Remote Desktop Connector and you use a third party software ? , because I don't have this 30 sec on a server not member of the domain, and also other PC not on the domain

    Nope I am using the RDP that comes with windows. It's been driving me crazy and I can't seem to figure out what setting it is. When both these computers were windows 7 there was never a wait. Now when the HTPC user is logged in, I have the request and the wait. I have tried disabling fast user switching but that didn't help.

    This is what it shows on the computer i am connecting from to the host.




    I am in the same workgroup with no domain set. I can't figure out if it is a setting on the host or the remote I need to change.

    My issue is exactly the same as this. http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/14...g-remote-deskt

    I have homegroup active on the HTPC but not signed in with the remote. Should I enable or disable on both?
