4.8 – shadow.html

By calling the /shadow.html page, you can join an existing RDP session and view it, or even control it.

Please note the requirements that must prevail on the RDP server for session shadowing to work:

  1. Start gpedit.msc and call the following directory:
    Computer Configuration / Administrative Templates / Windows Components / Remote Desktop Services / Remote Desktop Session Host / Connections
  2. Activate the policy "Rules for remote control of Remote Desktop Services user sessions"
  3. Enable file and printer sharing

After opening the page, you have the following options:

  • RDP server (IP address or host name of the RDP server)
  • Username
  • Password
  • Domain
  • Enable control over the session
  • Enable silent mode. This will not notify the main user of the session that shadowing is taking place.
