I have XP Pro at work and win 2000 at home. Remote Desktop has been working fine for a long time. After installing SP2 at work, remote desktop works OK over the LAN at work from another workstation, but from home I get. "The client could not connect ..."
I have turned off the firewall at work since the Interenet connection there is on a router which has port 3389 open. I have checked all the settings and everthing looks as it did before installing SP2.
As a last resort I un-installed SP2 today. SP1 seems to run faster, but still no luck on the remote connection from home. I can also successfully ping the work computer from home. Remote desktop still works fine over the LAN.
Any other ideas on something to check?
