hmmm... make sure on remote machines , you selected the option to accept remote connection from any versions of RDP client.

The most common reason why this is happening is because you are using a custom VISUAL STYLE with your computer. Set the visual style back to LUNA on XP or CLASSIC and see if the error occurs again. Most likely it will not. Not all visual styles produce this error, but if you want a custom visual style on the remote computer then you will have to find a compatible visual style that works with RDP via trial and error.

Disable IPv 6 from your computer and then try to connect. Looks like a protocol error. Use ipv 4.


That should resolve the issue.
