Remote Desktop connection through VPN

IT gave me the VPN address: tunnel.externaldomain.com

Also gave me the address of the computer I want to RD to:  comp11.externaldomain.com

I can create the VPN connection no problem (New Connextion Wizard, etc.), but I can't connect with Remote Desktop.

Do I need to tweak my VPN settings, or what have I missed?

We need more information.  What error messages are you getting?  Did you turn on RD on the computer, and make sure the access list /rights are set correctly?

Make sure port 3389 is unblocked on all devices between you and remote desktop machine.  This would include any router/frewall that you connect to the internet through, as well as the devices as the remote location.

infotrader, you're on the right track.  RD was not enabled.  Is now.

Now I get login prompt at RD, and see the slogin screen of the remote PC, but on logon, get the following msg:

"The user DOMAIN/coopadmin is currently logged on to this comp.  Only current user or admin can log on."

Is someone on at the other end?

What Operating System is this computer you are trying to enable RD on?

If it's a Server, and you are running Administration mode, then only Administrators of the server can access the computer.  Go to "Manage Computer" mmc  --> Local Users and Groups --> Groups" and add whoever you want access to the computer via RD Local Administrator prev.

You can also try to go to the computer properties  --> Remote TAB, and select the users you want allowed to the Remote Desktop session.
