Remote Desktop Connection

  Gary 19:28 15 Apr 2003

I have just set up a network and file and printer sharing etc. are all working fine.

I have been trying to set up the Remote Desktop facility in Windows XP Pro. I have configured all the options on both machines as described in the help files of Windows. I can access computer A using remote desktop from computer B but not computer B from computer A.

Can anyone advise me of which settings I need to change?

As far as I know you cannot use remote desktop from your XP host to client only the other way round from client to host.

Before I had the computer I've got now, I had another one in its place on the Network and was able to use the Remote Desktop connection in either direction. As far as I know, I have not set either computer to act as a host or defined the clients - because there are only two computers on the network.

Do anyone have any ideas at all what is causing this problem?

Have you not tried using WinVNC (click here).

It is much easier to use than remote desktop and easier to connect. Fire up the viewer, type in the IP address of the computer you want to control, type in the password of that computer (set in WinVNC on that computer) and that is it.

Hope this helps
