Cannot remote desktop to Windows XP machines
Posted on 2014-10-14
I am working with a very old network and have slowly been updating the computers. However, do to backward compatibility with older software, some workstations are still running Windows XP.
I would like to RDP to the Windows XP machines. However, when I try to do so, I cannot connect. It is not a user access issue as I do not even get prompted for user name and password.
On the same network, I am able to RDP to the server, so the problem lies specifically with XP clients.
I have disabled the firewall as well as the Anti-Virus (McAfee), but still no luck.
All computers are on the same subnet. I can ping all of them (including XP clients).
RDP has been enabled on the Windows XP machines.
Any suggestions or ideas as to how to fix?
