I am unable to connect remotely to computer. I've tried using IP address or computer name without any success. ...what i've done so far: ensured that the check box is checked to "allow users to connect remotely to this computer". I can remote to another computer from this computer but I cannot go the other way. What happens when I type the computer name or IP address in the Remote Desktop Connection box and click on connect, I see a quick blink on the Remote Desktop Connection box and nothing happens. Your help will be greatly appreciated.
