Answers (February 15, 2002)

Answer to Question 1
The correct answer is D—eventtriggers /create /s ridcully /tr "execute" /eid 4133 /l system /t error /tk c:\bin\execute.bat. You don't necessarily need to know the command's exact syntax to answer this question correctly, but you should be able to distinguish which command can do the job.

Answer to Question 2
The correct answer is E—Remote Assistance lets you view a remote desktop but doesn't let you interact with it unless the remote user you to; Remote Desktop lets you remotely work on your workstation as if you were at your own keyboard. You can't use Remote Desktop for assistance because it locks the screen on any system it connects to. Remote Desktop lets you log off from your workstation at the office, go home, and log on to the workstation from home. This feature is similar to Win2K Server Terminal Services Application Server, except that it permits just one connection.

Answer to Question 3
The correct answer is C—Run the Control Panel Add/Remove Programs applet; click Add/Remove Windows Components; and select Internet Information Services, Details, World Wide Web Services (Details), and Remote Desktop Web Connection. The connection isn't installed by default because Remote Desktop Web Connection can pose a security risk. Using this Web page will install an ActiveX plugin that can substitute for the full Windows 2000 Server Terminal Services client.
