Enable RDP Remotely via Command Line
To enable RDP on a computer remotely via the command line, first download PSEXEC.exe - a tool that allows you to run a command prompt on a remote computer or simply use the Remote Command function of PDQ Inventory.
The command to enable RDP is:
reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server" /v fDenyTSConnections /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f
Then run the following command to enable the relevant firewall rules:
netsh advfirewall firewall set rule group="remote desktop" new enable=Yes
Test the RDP connection.
