Windows XP RDP - Can not get RDP to work on a new system...
Posted on 2011-09-23
I have inherited a network infrastructure where the previous IT person left NO documentation on the setup and configuration, so I am finding myself reverse engineering the configuration to sort new installs out and such.
Today, I need to configure one of our in-house workstation for RDP so that the user can Remote Connect from home. We have 5 other users who are doing this and the setup seemed pretty straight forward, BUT I am missing something. I have reduced my testing to internal connections and once I can get that to work, I will tackle the RDP from the outside world.
We are using NAT and we have a NetGear Router. I have matched the VPN settings in the NetGear Router to match that of the other systems:
IP Address: 192.168.1.212
Service Port: 57212
RDP Command: 192.168.1.212:57212
Currently, I can use the new system to RDP internally to other stations, but for some reason, I can not RDP to it, internally.
