    Ctrl+Alt-Del prevents RDP connection


    I want to be able to log in to a Home server from my remote Win10 machine.
    But RDP only goes so far and then just waits...
    When I check the server it is waiting for Ctrl+Alt-Del which I cannot send from the remote machine.
    Travelling soon so need to sort this out!
    Just to say that on another server RDP just takes me to the local login without requiring Ctril+Alt-Del so I am a bit surprised and foxed! Maybe I should switch off (if I can) the requirement for Ctrl+Alt-Del on the server but that seems drastic.

    Any hints please?

    Teamviewer has the functionality you need, this used to be free for private use, although their judgement of "private" has changed over the last year or two.

    The older classic solution is a version of VNC that was around in the early days of windows

    Take a look here, that suggests several options (paid and free) Best Remote Access PC Software (Free & Paid Tools)

    Good luck finding what works for You

    If you are running an server OS on your server this will allow simpler access than running a desktop OS - which will require a reset (Ctrl Alt Delete) quite regularly though as you have seen not alwsys

    Well, if it happens again apparently the on-screen keyboard is your friend...
