    Remote connect to a system in the field w/o user in field


    I am setting up kiosks that once in the field will be locked down and not accessible to anyone in the field nor do we want anyone else accessing them. However, I need the ability to remote into the system if there is an issue.

    Is there anyway to set up the machine so that I can do this without someone being in the field at the machine?

    The built in Remote Desktop will also work. I use it to connect to my home computers from work some times.
