I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Settings on a home router can cause this. Check the settings for RDP - depending on your home routers manufacturer.

Well I was in home and now in the office...   what RDP settings could cause that?
what are you RDPing to? A server inside your network? Firewall settings can block it, or port settings on the server.

Cannot RDP anywhere.   Servers outside. Been able from home and been able from anywhere last night.
Check 3 things -

1. Check for IPv6, try disabling it
2. In options of remote desktop, advanced tab, change the server authentifications for : Connect and don't warn me
3. Just below, in connect from anywhere, Settings, select : Do not use an RD Gateway server

see if that fixes it

Interesting thing, just walked down the hall with a laptop, got into the corporate wireless, then went back and seems still working now. Both wired and wireless.  Some weird thing kicked in and seems working now.

I have tried disabling IPv6 btw.  That did not help.
