Remote Desktop Connection ERROR: "The client could not connect to the remote computer"
On my home WAN I have always connected to my desktop using remote desktop on my laptop until I had to reset my D-link router (DI-824vup) the other day. I had to do a factory reset on the router and I also released and renewed the desktop IP (I don’t know if that means anything).
I configured the firewall settings in the router config- and the firewall is disabled - windows pro settings have not changed since before the router reset and everything is still setup for allowing remote desktop connections in windows XP- windows firewall port is open, R. Desktop is enabled under system properties etc etc etc.
Any suggestions? What else could I have overlooked in my router config.? (I assume the router has a setting I overlooked because as I mentioned earlier the settings in windows pro have not been modified).
Thanks in advance!
