Windows 7 pro - RDP not working  when  remoting into the pc, but it works when connecting from the pc to others.
The rdp service is running and users are into the rdp group.  Any resolutions?

Make sure you have the "Allow remote connection to this computer" setting checked. By default windows 7 selects the "Don't allow remote connection to this computer". Open System by clicking the start button, right-click Computer, and the click properties. In the left pane click the Remote Settings. Under remote desktop, select one of the options to allow remote connections. Click select users and select the users or groups you want to give remote access to the machine.

Which error do users see when they fail to connect to that PC?  Is there anything in the event logs on either that Win7 PC or the client PC at the time of the failure that indicate why the connection failed?

That's the step that the author said fixed the problem.
