  • Cannot connect to Win 7 comp when Locked

    Hi everyone,

    I recently installed a Win 7 on my workstation (great OS by the way ).

    I need to connect to the workstation remotely via remote software (dameware) and works great when the computer is logged on by any user.

    When the workstation is locked, I cannot connect remotely ... I guess the Win fw is blocking the request (that is allowed in the advances fw settings).

    Is anyone aware of that kind of problem with Win 7 fw ?

    I'll be glad to find a solution.

    Thank you for helping,

    Any reason why you don't use Remote Desktop instead of Dameware?

        Not familiar with dameware, but it needs to be installed as a service.

          OK, I checked with RDP ... and it is not working also.
          I made 2 tests :

          1) i tried to connect just after locking the workstation -> no problem
          2) i tried an hour after locking the workstation -> not working

          Maybe there something happening after a certain timeout ?

          Anyone can explains it to me ?

          Thank you all for helping.

            How are the power settings configured? Is the machine in sleep or hibernation mode?

              Blood thank's for the tip.
              By default, my win 7 installation configured to hibernate after 30 min.
              I disabled it and now it works great.

              Problem solved

                Excellent! I have encountered the same issue my network! I use Specops to 'Start' a sleeping PC from the Domain Controller, that wakes it up and allows me to RDP. I don't allow hibernate on my network...

                Glad you got it sorted out.
