I have been trying to setup Remote Desktop Access, to no avail.
Both the Host and Server are running Windows 7 Pro 64bit.

I set up the Host Computer to allow Remote Desktop Access, see Attached Screen Shots RemoteDesktop1 and RemoteDesktop2.
I set the Host Firewall, see RemoteDesktop3.
In the Host's Router I forwarded port 3389 to the Host's static IP, see RemoteDesktop4. (Per Microsoft's instructions).

When I tried to access the Host remotely I got the Error Message in Attached Screen Shot RemoteAccess5.
I even tried to include Port 3389, see Attached RemoteAccess6.

Thanks,

Can anyone tell me what I was doing wrong?
