Hi Experts,

I have a machine that I installed for a client today.  Its a clean install of XP SP2 with SP3 installed onto it.

The problem is that I cant RDP onto the box from within the LAN or externally via Remote Web Workplace (SBS03) or if I set up port forwarding on the firewall.

I can RDP from the box to others on the LAN, but again cannot RDP onto the box.

I have enabled remote connections and also disabled the windows firewall.

When I try to connect I dont get an error message the MSTSC window simply stops trying to connect.

I have checked and there is not an IP confict either.

Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Did you tick the checkbox on Right click on my computer - properties - remote?

Do you have any other security software installed on the PC (like AV)?  Try disabling them to if that helps.

What about the computer you are testing from?  Are you able to connect to other PC's via RDP from there?

Is this computer in a domain (sound like it)?  If so, might want to double check group policy (resultant set of policies) for the computer.

Can you PING th PC?

Yes I can ping the PC and I can ping out from it.

I can connect to other pcs on the comain FROM this box but cant connect to it.

No 3rd party firewall software, have uninstalled the AV software but still no joy.

I dont get a message saying it cant connect just stops trying to connect, almost as if the port isnt open!??!

I have tried disabling the windows firewall service and this has not solved the problem..

Help please.....

hmmm.. Confirm RDP service on PC is not disabled, and is running?

Can you RDP FROM that PC?

OPTOMA - thank you very much!!!!

It was the Nvidia Driver, I added the registry key as suggested and it now works!

Wow that was infuriating.

Many thanks for all your help.
