Remote Desktop will not connect
Posted on 2008-10-10
I am trying to remote desktop a computer located one floor below me. I have enabled remote desktop on both machines that I am using, as well as allowed exceptions in firewall (not that it matters, since I have turned both firewalls off -- both computer I am using and machine I am attempting to reach). I can 'see' the machine on the network and can ping it by both name and IP, but it will not connect.
At first failed attempt, I used netsh commands to reset the firewall and re-set the settings, but this too will not work. I have also tried updating Windows to ensure that it is not a security patch issue, but no luck there.
If anyone has any ideas, they would be appreciated.
