Hello, I have Windows 7 Enterprise installed on two of my network computers.  One of the I have no problem accessing it via remote desktop and the other one I receive Access denied.  Both computers were configured the same.  I've comparied them both with the security setting and I have been unable to find any difference in the setting.  I've lowered the UAC to the lowest level and fire wall is turn off.  Any ideas of what I might be may be overlooking?

Make sure the computer you are trying to to connect to has "log dropped packets" and "log successful packets" set to "yes."  Then try to connect to the computer - when you get an "access denied" view the pfirewall.log at ...\system32\log files\firewall\ to see what the computer did with your incoming RDP requests.

I am not sure if i understand what you mean about the "log dropped packets" and "log successful packets", will you explain.  Also, I checked the firewall log files and there were no entries.

Problem solved!  Group policy setting caused the problem.
