Hello,

I have an issue RDP connecting to a users PC on the local network.  

Both the local and remote PC's are running WIndows XP, SP3 and on the local machine, I enter the IP, click connect, the connect button and IP field disable themselves, but a split second later, those fields are enabled again and no error message and no RDP connection.

On the remote system, I've enabled remote connections, I can telnet to port 3389 and get a blank screen, I've tried disabling Symantec Endpoint Protection, but still have the same problem.

I've checked to make sure terminal services and RPC services running and still cannot connect.

I don't know where to look next.  Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance,

Ronnie
