Why Don't Remote Desktop connection attempts work?
Posted on 2007-10-04
I rolled out a new workstation (Windows XP Pro SP2 with all Windows updates). I supplied a password for the user account, enabled the Remote Desktop connection, confirmed the user account had remote connection permission, and disabled system hibernation and standby modes but to no avail. The system does not respond to remote desktop connection requests unless someone first physically logs on to the workstation (then my remote desktop connection attempts work just fine).
What's up? How do I fix this nagging issue?
