Terminal Services PowerPack

If I had to compile a list of areas generating the most requests in our community discussion forums Terminal Services and everything related to them would definitely make it to top 10.

This is why I was really excited to see Jason posting his Terminal Services PowerPack to the PowerGUI library.

Let me quote from Jason’s PowerPack page:

With this PowerPack, you can also view the Terminal Service settings on remote computer and the live RDP sessions on remote computers or the local machine. While viewing the live sessions, you can interact with them by sending a message to the user, shadowing the connection, take over the connection, or disconnect the session in various ways.

[For administrators,] This PowerPack allows basic administration of Termial Servers (view settings, permissions, enable/disable connections), RDP sessions (message, connect to, disconnect) and RDP connections (launch, edit settings). Additionally, administrators can immediately launch an RDP connection to a ADComputer they may be viewing in PowerGUI.

And a few screenshots:

    I’m glad that it will be useful.

    There are more improvements to this PowerPack on the way. I haven’t learned all of the API and WMI information for Terminal Services. 🙂
