Discussion in 'Windows Vista Networking' started by John Jay Smith, Mar 29, 2006.

  1. I am testing Vista as a RDP server and XP as a client, and there is
    no sound via RDP.. is it something about vista that has a problem?

    Hello!

    Well, Vista is beta. But you can try new Vista RDP 6.0 Client in XP:

    I also think that 32-bit color depth is supported (so it was planned)

    Cheers, Roman

  3. yes but can you ore someone else confirm that the lack of sound is because
    of vista or am I doing something else that is wrong?

  4. OK, bring up your Remote Desktop Connection box, click the Options box,
    click Local Resources, and make sure the first option is "Bring to this
    computer".

    On the remote computer - the speakers need to be turned on as well (seems to
    be a bug in Vista), and also check that the volume is turned up... but *make
    sure* that the "Wave" volume is set to maximum as well.

    If that doesn't work, bug it :eek:)

  5. 1) Of course I had "bring to my computer" enabled
    2) What you say is incorrect. A OS does not care if it has speakers,
    earphones
    or nothing at all pluged in to the output jack, unless the speakers are USB.
    3) Congratulations! Indeed turning on the volume on the pc locally enabled
    the remote desktop to get sound. This is indeed a bug in vista.. it should
    not be
    like that... here is a screenshot of what I have.. (I have a 2 monitor
    system)

  7. Wow, it's nice sometimes not to know when someone insults you or thanks
    you... perhaps both!

  8. Zack :) I know I was not clear on purpose :)

    Let me clarify...
    I thank you very much for your help... indeed I would not have thought
    of turning up the volume on the actual machine. I am sure others will
    benefit from this information also if they find it on the newsgroups.

    Can you tell me what a R2 Mentor is?

    Just curious...
