Finding the Local Computer Policy in the Registry!

By Joshua Miller ·
I am managing a computer network with about 60 machines running XP Pro. I am currently using a login.bat file from our server. I am looking to edit each machine?s Local Policy using the registry. I need to edit the Policy (Local Computer Policy\Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Remote Assistance) and change the Offer Remote Assistance Properties to Enabled and add users to that list. Does anyone know where I might find the entries in the registry? I think I might be able to figure out how to edit it using my batch file as I already am editing it to Turn Remote Desktop On and Remote Assistance On but I just need to know where this is at in the registry! Thanks in Advance for any given!

Its right here

System Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server]
Value Name: AllowTSConnections fDenyTSConnections fAllowToGetHelp
Data Type: REG_DWORD (DWORD Value)

To Enable Remote Assitance
Create or modify the following DWORD values:
AllowTSConnections set it to "1"
fDenyTSConnections set it to "0"
fAllowToGetHelp set it to "1"

To Disable Remote Assitance
Create or modify the following DWORD values:

Try this one... Took me FOREVER to find it...

These settings will allow anyone in the administrators group the ability to accept unsolicited remote assistance...

I also noticed that you are pushing out the other necessary keys, so I omit those for brevity.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\Terminal Services]
"fAllowUnsolicited"=dword:00000001
"fAllowUnsolicitedFullControl"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\Terminal Services\RAUnsolicit]
"Administrators"="Administrators"


Good luck, Sir.
