Connecting to a remote console

Say you want to connect to a remote machine with Remote Desktop (RDP) but want to get hold of the actual machine's console. That is - you want to get the session that you would have were you standing in front of the machine physically.

To do so, run the following command:

mstsc /console

Then connect to the machine as you would with a regular RDP session. What you will get is the actual console session.

Thanks to Chen Avnery for this little (but helpful) info.
