Remote Desktop Connection stopped working to Terminal Server.
Posted on 2004-08-03
My remote connection to a terminal server will not work. I get the following.... Remote Desktop Disconnected: The client could not establish a connection to the remote computer.
The most likely causes for this error are:
1) Remote connections might not be enabled at the remote computer.
2) The maximum number of connections was exceeded at the remote computer.
3) A network error occurred while establishing the connection.
I am able to connect to this server at the office which uses DSL & a router. I was able to connect to this server from home until about a month ago which uses a cable modem and no router. Nothing was changed in my setup except for Windows XP upgrades which I've kept updated. My XP firewall is off and I do not currently have another installed. I have tried to ping the address but it just time's out. I have tried all the suggestions i found from other answers to this same question on this exchange but nothing has worked. I've even tried restoring my machine back to a date when I knew it worked but it still didn't work.
The network admin at the company i'm trying to connect to tells me it must be my computer since I'm able to connect from the office. They have up-to-date licenses so that can't be the problem.
