    Win 8.1 Pro 64 - Removing new network authorisation?


    I have a number of small home servers at various locations using HP N54L Microserver chassis and now recently running Win 8.1 Pro 64 bit (I used to use WHS 2011 until it was discontinued). I use this OS as I need to run Windows based applications remotely for updating systems. This is great until there is a network change, or Windows thinks there had been one, at the remote location. Because then Windows pops up a message on the desktop asking if the network is ok to use for sharing etc (I can't remember the exact text as I've been clicking it away very quickly to get what I need done done).

    Without doing this I cannot use access via remote desktop or see any shared folders on the Microserver which is a pain as all the machines are run headless. I can access them via Logmein but this can be rather slow if the location has a poor internet connection.

    Are there any ways to stop this query coming up on network change or bypass it?

    I always get it once on a server as I build them at home and then when I move them to the required network elsewhere it is identified as Network 2 and requires the OK to be given.

    Not sure if this is what you're looking for: Saving your logon credentials in Remote Desktop Connection

    Afraid not.

    When windows detects network changes/a new network it requires you to confirm it is ok to use. Until you do so remote desktop access isn't possible.

    I really don't see how you can get around that. Seems like a good case for a laptop. Take it with you and connect there, bring it back home and connect. Maybe I have my head up my you know what.

    Sounds to me like there is a connection issue between your computer and those/that server. I would first investigate the connection issue first and go from there. I don't know your network setup and how you have it setup but to me if you can't access the server remotely then there's a connection issue or something is wrong with the server as its not allowing you to remotely connect.

    I know what the cause of the remote desktop and share access denial is, no network issues. It's a windows 8 thing, presumably added in to make your pc running it more secure if it's on a laptop etc and you're always hopping onto different wifi and possibly unsecured public network connections.

    I'm stumped. I run windows 8.1 pro now and I have 3 Windows 2008 servers and never had that issue where it's asking me to check or validate any settings. I run two of my servers remotely. I'm sorry if I didn't help.
