"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Do you have admin rights? Perhaps a domain policy is enforcing that you cannot change it. Do you have domain rights to edit GPO?
Hemil AquinoNetwork Security EngineerCommented:
Do you want to do this in a production environment or Lab?

If it's production, then they might have security on place, such as GPO, or user rights.
If its the opposite then make sure remote desktop is enable, enable the port TCP 3389 on the firewall and you should be neat.

1. Open Control Panel
2. Put in search "remote"
3. Open Allow remote access to this computer

4. On Firewall forward port 3389 to yur server IP address.
