Why can't I remote desktop into my home computer?
Posted on 2011-09-05
I have two laptops in my home network. One is older, and everything works great. I can remote desktop into it, just fine. The new computer is setup and I am able to remote desktop into the new laptop from the old laptop. However, when I point the router to the new computer's IP address, I cannot seem to remote desktop into the new laptop.
Any assistance is greatly appreciated!
The old laptop is Vista, the new one is Windows 7. Again, in the private, local network, I can remote desktop into either. On the router, I have to stop forwarding for Remote Desktop to the old one, then forward to the new one. The router appears to be setup correctly, yet when I try to remote in, I can't get a connection, after repointing the router.
