Howto Remote Desktop Connection Console in Windows XP/2003

Have you ever liked connecting to a Windows XP / Windows Server 2003 current session and take control of the console? There are some 3rd party softwares doing that like UltraVNC but none are satisfactory even in LAN let alone using them on the ‘net.
With Windows Server 2003 you can simply do that adding a /console to your remote machine name in Remote Desktop Connection and there you go! In Windows XP, you will have to go to Command Prompt and try WINDOWS FolderSystem32mstsc /console for getting the same result, else you will face an error.

With the .NET Framework version 1.1 you can configure an ASP.NET Web application or Web service to run with partial trust to improve security by constraining its ability to access system level resources and resources owned by other applications. This chapter shows you how ASP.NET code access security policy works, how to configure it and how to develop Web applications for partial trust environments. The chapter explains how to sandbox resource access, for example code that accesses databases, the event log and Web services so that it can successfully run at reduced trust levels.
