we have three workstations all running win 7 and a server running win 2003. It is a backup copy of our main server . However, due to a problem with our main server, we now need to use this back up server.
There is a problem. of three workstations, only one can access the server locally . We access it by using RDP and typing in the ip address.. 192.168.1.2 .
all machines can ping the server
all machines can type the \\192.168.1.2 from the run command, and see the shares
all machines are on the same workgroup as all the other local workstations
but only one workstation can access it to work on it , from with in our local lan.
other offices are having no problem accessing it from accross the internet.
and we have ample license.
Thereis some relationship between the workstation and the server which is precluding a RDP connection.
i am not even given the oppurtunity to log in , i am just told that windows can not connect.
