Hi  Experts,

I am trying to use Remote Desktop to connect to a Windows XP SP2 Workstation on our LAN.

When I attempt to connect I get a message that includes the text: "Remote connections may not be enabled".
I can Ping the workstation OK.


Regards,
Leigh

On the XP machine you are trying to access, ensure that remote access is enabled.
Control Panel -> System -> Remote tab -> select the checkbox (Allow users to connect remotely to this computer) and select the appropriate users finally...

Enable the computer remote control ability... Right click on My Computer >> Properties >> Clcik on the tab labeled Remote >> Check the box labeled "Allow Remote invitations to be send from this computer" >> Click on Advanced >> Check the box labeled "Allow this computer to be controlled remotely".

On a side note, the computer that you are remoting with must be XP Pro, Home edition can not do this. The computer that you are controlling can be either Home or Pro.
