Is there a way to turn on Remote Desktop on a machine that I have Admin
privileges while at a remote machine or is the only way to do that while you
are physically in front of that PC?

Thanks
JT

Posted on a blog:

Enabling Remote Desktop, remotely
Let's say you're in a situation where you can't log into your XP
machine
because you forgot to click that checkbox. psexec to the rescue!

psexec \\machinename reg add
"hklm\system\currentcontrolset\control\terminal server" /f /v
fDenyTSConnections /t REG_DWORD /d 0

I shouldn't have to say that this isn't in any way supported, or that
it's not going to work if you're not already an admin on the machine
that has RD access, or that a firewall will get in the way, or that
there may be better ways to do it using script or WMI, but I've found
it useful on a couple occasions.

psexec is available from http://www.sysinternals.com
