How do I connect to a Windows 7 machine via Remote Desktop?
Posted on 2011-09-14
I have two machines at home...a LENOVO running Windows XP, and a HP running Windows 7.
When I am on the HP, I can use Remote Desktop Connection to login to the LENOVO.
However, when I am on the LENOVO, when I try to connect to the HP using Remote Desktop Connection and enter the IP address, I get an error "this computer cannot connect to the remote computer".
I should also note that I am able to ping the HP's IP address from the LENOVO, I just cannot connect to the HP's IP address using Remote Desktop Connection from the LENOVO like I can the other way around.
Any suggestions on what I need to do to be able to establish a Remote Desktop Connection from the LENOVO into the HP?
