Hello welcome to the RightFax University Crash Course.

This video will demonstrate how to determine what the current connected session type to the server is.

For an in-place RightFax installation or other installations and troubleshooting needs, it's highly recommended (and sometimes needed) to be connected directly to the server as a console session.

From a Command Prompt on the fax server where you are logged in, there are 3 commands you can run to verify you are in console mode on the server, let's take a look:

1. quser
2. set s
3. set session

Notice that in each instance here I am connected via and RDP session -- this is not true console control. For installations and upgrades (and again some troubleshooting needs) we would be looking to verify that we see "Console" as the session name here instead.

That's it for verifying Windows Server session type.

Thanks for watching.
