Remote Desktop not working over company network
Posted on 2006-04-21
I have configured my home PC to allow remote desktop web connections. I have tested that this works by connecting to it from a friends PC.
However, when I try to do the same from work, via a company PC, I get the following message in a pop up box:
"VBScript: Remote Desktop Disconnected - The client could not connect to the remote computer. Remote connections might not ne enabled or the computer might be too busy to accept new connections. It is also possible that network problems are preventing your connection. Please try connecting again later. If the problem continues to occur, please contact your administator."
I firstly presumed that I had something configured wrong on my company laptop and so I brought it home and verified that remote desktop works fine by connecting through my own router.
Therefore, it seems that the web proxy used by my company intentionally or unintentially blocks remote desktop web connections. Does anything know any other possibilities - or a way around this?
