Windows 7 laptop cannot connect to office workstation via SBS2008 Workplace

I have a Windows 7 laptop that has remote access to a workstation on the SBS2008 domain via "Workplace"
- However, I have to disable the Malwarebytes Premium to allow the Workplace remote connection to the user's office PC. If Malwarebytes is enabled, it fails to connect. I tried several exceptions to no avail.
- we prefer not to leave the Malwarebytes disabled
- I'm sure its an exception I have to add but have had no luck

Every time I try to access the Workplace, a Malwarebytes Exploits box pops up and blocks it. I added the remote.domainname.com and the IP address in the exclusions to no avail.  Attached is the Malwarebytes report

The only way around it - without disabling the MalwareBytes, is to "right-click" the Malwarebytes icon and uncheck the "Exploit Protection"

Sorry for not getting back so late.

kenfcamp - that's what I ended up doing but I didn't want to block out scripting. Anyway, that was the fix. Thanks!

R. Andrew Koffron - I was not aware or the port number. I will try that next time. Thanks!
