Can't connect to XP computer on network (192.168.1.200) via Remote Desktop Connection.

Can't connect to XP Home Edition SP3 computer on network (192.168.1.200) via Remote Desktop Connection.  I have checked the standard RDP setup parameters (1. Remote access to the computer is turned on, 2. firewall is not on, 3. the computer is visible on the network).  I can ping the computer on the network.  I have also checked to make sure somehow the RDP port number has not been changed from 3389.

Thank you for your help!

You need upgrade XP pro as least, or can use VNC.

QUESTION: if XP Home does not support RDP why do they give it a RDP prot number (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\TerminalServer\WinStations\RDP-Tcp\PortNumber) and is there a way to enable RDP/Remote Desktop Connection on XP Home (a hack, etc)?

I had read somewhere there is a "non documented" way to enable RDP on Win XP home (I think simply is disable by marketing needs) and this causes you can see this registry entry.
