How to enable Remote Desktop remotely through registry

How many times you tried that remote desktop and it fail, you are sure remote desktop is enabled; yet you can ping it but cant login remotely.

It happen to all of us. For example if you dis-joined a computer from the domain remote desktop get reset to default setting (disabled state).

Thank God that we have alternative way to enabled it back remotely; through Registry :)


  1. Network connection to desired computer.
  2. Remote registry service enabled.
  3. Administrators privilege.
  1. From another computer open registry (regedit.exe) from cmd or run with administrator privilege.
  2. From your registry console choose File > connect network registry then type your desired destination computer.
  3. Navigate to below registry key and change the REG_DWORD key "fDenyTSConnections" value to {1} to Disable it.
 HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server

Happy solving!
