problem connecting to several xp computers by Remote Desktop on domain
Posted on 2010-09-22
I'm having problems connecting to some xp computers on domain by Windows Remote Desktop Connection.
so far what I have looked at is (some checked stuff might not be necessary for it to work):
XP FW off (no other FW software installed)
remote desktop turned on
server service started
F&P sharing on
port 3389 enabled and listening tied to svchost.exe (by netstat -ano)
my domain user id is in local admin group on computers I'm trying to rdp into (I'm a member of IT support group)
computers trying to connect are pingable both ways
checked dns records no problems, also tried connecting also by ip address
I also could not connect with my laptop on same subnet
in all cases probably a dozen total, if computer was removed from domain then readded there was no more problems connecting by Windows Remote Desktop Connection.
I'm looking for ideas on what else to check for.
