for the video setting until the drivers for the monitor are loaded. You do not mention the flavor of XP the remote system is running. If you booted the remote with a monitor and then shut the monitor off, I would think it would still hold the setting. Windows OS for a server would be a better choice for the system acting as a server. Just what are the circumstances on this? More info please.
I use VPN to talk to a computer running Windows XP. Remote display is fine if the source computer is booted with monitor connected. If the computer is booted with monitor disconnected (this needs to be the default case), the remote display shows a 640 x 480 resolution that apparently is related to some default setting in WinXP. I need to get back to the 1280 x 1024 or similar resolution when the computer is booted without monitor. Can this be done??? Thanks.
