Remote Desktop Suddenly Stopped Working
Posted on 2008-06-25
I am running Windows XP SP3 and have been using remote desktop for a while. The other day it just stopped working. I accidentally disabled the network adapter on the remote PC while connected to it, obviously I got disconnected. When I went home and enabled the adapter (same IP, static through router) I can no longer remote the computer.
Remote Desktop Enabled
Cannot even connect over LAN to the machine. When I click connect the buttons go gray as if trying to connect for about 2 seconds then come back as if nothing at all happened. No errors or messages, it just does not connect. If I put in the WRONG IP for Remote Desktop it will throw an error that it could not connect. I am able to telnet the machine.
