Remote Desktop not working with XP machines, but does with Win7
Posted on 2011-02-21
I have a network running with an SBS2008 box. The local ISP has installed a VPN connection (Juniper router). You log in over the Internet, click "Start Network" and withina few seconds, a VPN connection is secured.
At this point you can be at home and run Remote Desktop Connection and put in the IP address of the machine back at the office.
Could be a coincidence, but right now, if the machine at the office is running Windows & Pro, the Remote Desktop connection works. If the machine is running Windows XP Pro, Remote Desktop fails to find the machine.
Yet, Remote Desktop works from any machine to machine from within the LAN. Remote Desktop Connection is enabled as a firewall exception (as a group policy) on all machines.
Anyone ever heard of RD problems where Win 7 machines can be connected to but not Win XP?
How would I troubleshoot this?
