    New install, enable Remote Desktop Connection & Teamviewer


      I've just installed remotely, SaaS on my servers (Win 2008).  Now I can no longer access them via a remote desktop connection.  By the time I get to the server room, there is nothing showing on the screen to grant permission.  How can I turn it back on so I don't have to go to the server room every time I want to check my databases or backup.


      Also, I need to enable Teamviewer access to desktops on the network, can I pre-enable it in a policy? Of course as a brand new install, I know nothing about setting up policies or system wide policies yet.  Do I need to wait for the banner at the bottom to grant access?  There are several users who regularly work from home at night who need access.
