Terminal Services on Vista
Posted on 2009-05-01
I have a new vista business machine. I am trying to connect to it using remote desktop, but it will not connect. It gets the error "The computer can't connect to the remote computer".
I have tried to connect using the name and ip. Neither work. I can connect to other manchines and it works fine. I am on a small domain based network. Also, the new machine can connect via terminal services to other machines, and also can see folders on other machines. Everything seems to work except TS.
I have set the Remote Settings to "allow connections from any version...". I also tried the "NLA" option. Neither work.
I can ping the IP or machine name.
I tried to telnet to the machine with "telnet 192.168.1.102 3389". I get "could not open connection". When I try the same thing to a different box, it at least connects.
I have turned off the firewall on the target machine. I have also turned it on and enabled Terminal Services. Neither work.
I have checked the registry to see the port, which is the default 3389.
