I have a workstation running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit that we cannot Remote Desktop into. I have successfully used RDP for years on various machines. I have a similar machine (running Win 7 Ultimate 32 bit) sitting next to the 64 bit and we can remote into with no problem. In fact it has only been in the last couple of months that RDP on 64 bit quit working. We get a 'Remote Desktop can't connect to the remote computer for one of these reasons:..... I know that none of the three reasons given is the problem. The setup:
RDP is configured to port 3379 on the 64 bit machine
The network firewall is setup with the needed entries
We run Symantec Endpoint on our systems which takes over the Windows firewall. I've made allow entries on this machine for port 3379 - TCP and UDP.
I have tried with Symantec disabled - no help
I have checked and rechecked everything on the machine that has to do with RDP...still get the error.
I am sure I am missing something and it may be obvious, but I just can't see it.
