Hi guys,

we have this computer on our network (WinXP SP2) that can be seen and accessed by others. But if I use Remote Web Workplace (SBS) to connect to that PC, it says it can't and that I should check if it is on and is on the network. Any ideas? Thanks.

Hiya,
Are you able to connect to other computers thru RWW?
Are you able to remote desktop into this PC?

Yes, I'm able to connect to other computers thru RWW.
And yes, I'm able to remote desktop on those PC's that I can connect to.

I think what budchawla meant was, are you able to remote desktop into the PC in question without RWW (from another computer inside the network).  Have you checked that the Windows Firewall isn't blocking it?  (You need to have port 3389 open).  And in case you haven't checked already, make sure Remote Desktop is enabled within the System control applet.

Hi RealSnaD,

Did you add the computer via http://servername/connectcomputer?
If you added the pc via the right way it should be available throught remote desktop.
If not, right click 'my computer' > properties > remote. Make sure the second checkmark is checked.
If it is checked it might be some local firewall problem.

Cheers!
