MSTSC to Windows XP machine from Windows 7 not working...
Posted on 2010-11-17
I'm having a problem connecting to Windows XP machines from my Windows 7 Pro x86 machine. I keep getting the following error:
"The client could not establish a connection to the remote computer.
The most likely causes for this error are:
1) Remote connections might not be enabled at the remote computer.
2)The maximum number of connections was exceeded at the remote computer.
3) A network error occurred while establishing the connection.
4) The remote computer might not support the required FIPS security level. Please lower the client side required security level Policy, or contact your network administrator for assistance"
For reference, remote connections are enabled, no one else is connected remotely to that PC, and I'm not sure about what 4) means.
