Remote Desktop does not present a logon screen
Posted on 2004-10-12
on XP Pro to XP Pro I am connecting but I get either a black screen or a blue screen (not the blue screen of death) but no windows logon prompt. Remote Desktop is enabled on both machines and I have been able to successfully connect from locally, but not via WAN. The black screen seems as though the monitor is asleep or it is in screen saver mode.
Keep in mind this machine is now many hundereds of miles away and nobody will be there to make any changes or manually reboot it until several hours from now. being lazy and impatient i want some answers now so I will assign this 500 pts.
