I'm trying to use RDP on an VPN server (XP PRO). I can connect and authenticate just fine but when I have connected I still can't ping the same machine but I was issued an IP from it.

not sure I understand.

You have XP Pro, and you are using RDP to connect to another machine ?

What machine ?
Where are you, and where is the other machine.

What connection do you have.

Details please.

I hope this helps !

Normally RDP is one way, you can access a remote machine, but the remote can not access your machine !!!

I hope this helps !
