Checking for Remote Access

Posted: May 1, 2010 in Logon Script with Shell

Determining whether a client is logging in through the network or remote access helps you specify which parts of the script to run. CheckRAS is a command-line, SMS resource kit utility to determine whether a user is using remote access. To determine whether the current user is using remote access during a logon script, proceed as follows:

  1. Create a new directory to store all files included in this example.
  2. Select Start|Run and enter “scriptfile.bat.”

Here, scriptfile is the full path and file name of a script file that contains the following:

@Echo Off

CLS ; Clears the screen


fullpath\CheckRAS > Nul

If %errorlevel% EQU 1 Set RAS=YES

Here, fullpath is the full path where the CheckRAS utility is located, and RAS indicates whether the current user is using remote access or not.
