Connection problems with remote desktop connection

Good somehow I try to connect to my remote friends computer and it has a windows 7 and I already configured on his computer. I already forwarded Ports on his computer, his static IP, added exception to the firewall, including Norton Internet Security Firewall 2013, so his remote desktop connection is good. But my computer is a Windows Vista Home Premium, but somehow, it wont let me connect it keeps telling in a dialog box with this error:

Say this 'Remote Desktop disconnected"
"Try to connect again. If the problem persists, contact your network administrator or the owner of the remote computer.

But it's is not my friends computer problem, its my computer, I would have never been able to use Remote Desktop on my computer, I have no idea why. I also configured with my router Embarq EQ 660 - R in the NAT rule SUA Port 3389 with my routers IP. But somewhere in my firewall, it doesn't let me use the same TCP 3389 port, it won't let me enter any number of his strange. Well, I have the screen shot a photo so I'll attach the image so you can see what I mean. But I already have my friends computer sent a static router IP configured on him and on his router port everything worked fine, but the problem is mine, don't let me not the port before my router only if I use the NAT option and entering into the rule of SUA, in which I made with port 3389 , and my default gateway static IP.  I also added an exception to my Windows Firewall and also my Norton Internet Security firewall, 2013 including the application, but still somehow, it does not work. On my router, if I try to put the port range: 3389 to 3389. Added the name of Service like RDP, Type of Service: TCP. Also, I made my public computer static IP a little go. A how's my friends computer it works

Thanks I would really appreciate it

  • Problem with Remote Desktop using router WRT54GC

    Hi all.

    My husband and I travel with a computer and an iPhone each, so 4 wireless devices, when we travel, we use the WRT54GC to connect to DSL or broadband from the hotel and then create a LAN in the room using the WRT54GC so we can connect all our devices through the router to the internet.

    Key steps are:

    (1) connect to the router from the hotel to rent a computers IP address.

    (2) do an ipconfig to get the IP address leased the hotel, over the subnet, DNS servers, etc.

    (3) hook a computer into the WRT54GC and give him the IP address and other parameters and clone the IP address of the original computer used to connect to the hotel so that the hotel think that our WRT54GC is the same device.

    (4) connect the router to the wall to talk to the router of the hotel and to connect our devices on wifi LAN created by the WRT54GC and we're good to go.

    Everything works very well and always, but with one exception: we normally use connection software Office Microsoft standard to logon remotely to our computers at home.  We use dyndns to update the IP address of the computer and were marketed in the House so that each computer is accessed through our home router when a query of the DRC between the use of this port forwarding port.

    However, all of a sudden we cannot Remote Desktop our personal computers through the WRT54GC.

    If we put the original computer used to access the router from the hotel directly to the connection to the local network, then there is no problem and that computer can successfully remote desktop, but once we put the router in the equation, we cannot do.

    Any thoughts?  It's certainly something about the configuration of the router, but I checked the firewall and DNS, and those who are not suspects.  The router configuration has not changed in recent years and has always worked previously.

    Any help appreciated.

    Thanks for the tip!

    We have recently started using  There is no charge for simple remote desktop, but the monitor resize and things is easier with it as the version of Microsoft, and for a small fee, you can activate on the management of files, allowing you to do things like file transfer between your home and remote computers easily.  I had tried to do in the past using DRC and it was too slow, but not also with

    That's why we have not been totally freak out the problem, because we had a backup solution with this product, but my husband has a phone in his office, he can connect to while overseas to make calls since in Australia (where we live) while he gets a charge local calls only, and it does not work with logmein , that is why we must get Microsoft DRC will once again!

    In any case, we use dyndns to administer a dynamic update of our IP address for our home router, is to make our computers at home and in a last ditch effort, I had a look at our account and re-joined our IP against our dynamic naming.  Hop, DRC said work again after that.

    It is most strange, because the IP listed was the good IP, but somehow it seemed temporarily do not resolve correctly.

    In any case, it's all fixed.

    At least, it was pretty obvious that it was something somewhere between the router and the House, because of the way he acted. It's usually pretty obvious when your home network has fallen... we knew that is that since we could communicate by other means.

    Thanks for the tip on the other remote tools.  I will certainly check.  There is never too much!

  • Weired problem with Remote desktop and WLan on Tecra M7


    I regularly use Microsoft Office remote to connect to my work PC to my laptop (TOSHIBA TECRA M7 Tablet) home.
    However, since buying (not had long), the remote desktop connection drops and I can't reconnect to the Toshiba laptop.

    It seems that when I connect to the start via Remote Desktop and the connection start screen appears after a short time 10-25mins laptop Toshiba Wifi connection drops.
    When I try to reconnect it does not allow me to do.
    I have to physically come back home and logon to windows XP and then re - activate the wifi.

    I did the following to here.

    1 UPDATE the latest BIOS



    Do you use the Intel Proset utility to configure the WiFi connection?
    Try to configure the WiFi network using this tool and check if the WiFi network would disconnect again.

    I m also interesting this driver Wlan did you use?
    Did you use one page of Intel?
    If this is not the case, check the Intel page for the new WLan driver version.

  • Problem with remote desktop on Windows 7

    On my Windows 7 machine, when I try to use the remote desktop connection, after entering the password it waits a few seconds and then hangs with the message: remote connection Deskptop has stopped working. My work around was to use the DRC in the Windows XP virtual machine. I'm working on a new project where I need to access a Windows VPS Server 2012, which does not allow connections to Windows XP running. I've disabled most of the local resources in the DRC but no luck.

  • Problem with remote desktop in Windows 7 Home Premium

    I have two laptops running Windows 7 Edition Home Premium.  I do a simple administration of a 2008 R2 remote server, for a friend and all of a sudden, remote desktop will not connect to the server on one of the laptops.

    I checked all the settings, of course, and the problem is NLA.  I get the error message: requires NLA (Network Level Authentication) that your computer not only supports the remote computer that you are trying to connect to.

    I thought it was strange that I never set the server to require NLA.  I know I should but anyway...  I checked that the server is in fact not the value require NLA, so this should not be preventing the connection.
    Now, two laptops have DRC version 6.2.9200, but non-functioning LT said that NLA is not supported in the "information" window.  Two portable computers support Remote Desktop Protocol 8.0 
    Even if NLA is not required on the server, if it is set to the work of LT, why not at least try?  Even if it's just to eliminate a point of failure.  None of this is hard, right? Bad...
    I went in the LT does not work to change the DRC to allow the NLA (System, remote control properties) However, there is nowhere where do...   There is an option to "Allow remote access" button and an "Advanced" button.  Under the "Advanced" button, there are two elements to control the limits of the use of remote assistance.  There is an option button to enable remote assistance and the other to set the amount of time that the remote computers can be connected.  Nothing to control NLA.   On the functioning LT, which has the same version of the DRC, IT IS A PLACE to CHANGE NLA.  I'm confused.  How the same version of DRC can have two different menus?
    Just for fun, I tried even to DRC running in compatibility mode.  Nothing...
    Is there a registry change that will allow me to activate it?  I do not always have access to the laptop works.  I need to bring both work.

  • How to access Windows 8 PC on the Internet with remote desktop connection?


    Can someone tell me how to access Windows 8 PC on the Internet with remote desktop connection?

    I'm good with the software and I have used many Microsoft software since the 1980s. So I like Microsoft products, but since they have outsourced their tech support, you can't support quality even if you pay for it. I followed all the instructions in the Windows 8 will help about DRC setting screens, but I can't connect unless I'm on the same home network. Here are the details:

    I have a desktop PC with Windows 8 Pro and I have authorized the DRC. I tried two settings in system properties:

    1. Allow connections to this computer remotely.
    2. That allow the connection of computers running Office remotely with authentication NLA.

    I also turned on both private and Public Windows Firewall settings > allow an App or feature through Windows Firewall.

    I have installation then DRC to my laptop with Windows 8 (standard edition, not the Pro version). I have a DRC using the full name of the computer and other DRC using the static IP address for my ISP Desktop connection.

    I use the user account administrator Windows for connections of DRC of the laptop.

    I cannot get this to work on the Internet from a location outside my house with another ISP connection. The only way it works if I'm uncomfortable with the laptop using the same network home.

    I called Dell tech support and it is always useless and just a more aggravating waste of an hour to talk to their support of technique outsourced in India (who barely even understand English) and then they hang up the phone as it was supposed to be disconnected. I also called Microsoft support and lost more than an hour to speak to their outsourced tech support in the Philippines (and as support of the India, they hang up or 'disconnect' when they cannot answer your question and they go account learn you more about Windows while they do). U.S. tech companies use AMERICANS more for their technical support so their customers can get people who actually care about doing a good job and can actually understand English?

    So if someone who knows using Windows 8 for DRC on the Internet has some tips, then it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you!!

    P.S. If anyone is offended by my comments about the ugly, incompetent, stupid providing "technical support" in India or the Philippines - Nevermind! You go ahead and waste hours of your time talking to some Morón in these countries, who barely understands English and then 'disconnects' the call when they know that you realize that they are clueless and have all the answers.

    Take a look at no - or, and then use your host.domain:3389 of no.-ip/dynDNS or run RelaVNc SErver that is running on port 5900 by default.  Server options allow you to change the port as well if necessary.

  • Desktop HP Pavilion - p7 1549: problems with my desktop HP Pavilion - p7 1549

    I have problems with my desktop computer, do very strange things.  A few weeks ago, it would not start and complained no found boot device.   I went into the bios setup and just reset the values by default and it worked for a few weeks.  Now it does not start at all.

    I tried to access the system with F11 recovery and he complains about some secure boot options, I tried to disable secure boot and it still does not work.

    I tried to put another disc in and install Windows on it, but I could not.  Is it possible to upgrade the BIOS by booting to a USB port?  I tried to download the new bios file, but it didn't do anything after that I ran it (he didn't not create a folder for me).

    Everything seems really slow, takes a few minutes to get into the bios or boot options.  I took out the hard drive and plugged into another computer with an external enclosure and my other computer recognizes the drive.

    I tried to do a system restore to factory default start repair/restore and all have failed.  I deleted very recently on the main partition on my drive to try to install 10 Windows on the drive.  The computer appears to be frozen for a long time before continuing with the guests of installation.

    I took out the CMOS battery and you press the power button with the computer unplugged.

    Don't know what else I can try, I'm starting to think that something is wrong with the motherboard.  The computer starts up fine and I can boot a USB Windows install and the keyboard, mouse and video work.

    I think the next thing I will try is tent to start on a standalone update or ubuntu USB boot bios.

    Not really concerned about my data, I just want to get this computer working again.

    Any suggestions are appreciated, thank you.

  • Obsolete entry in the DNS Cache in name of VCHB with Remote Desktop connection

    We cannot use remote desktop to connect the virtual name of one of our vCenter Heartbeat.  When we connect we get a message that says "the connection can not be established because the remote computer that has been concluded is not one that you have specified.  This could be caused by an outdated entry in the DNS cache.  Try using the IP address of the computer instead of the name.  We are able to connect by IP address.

    Googling for this error comes up with ideas such as time synchronization check (it's good), and the deactivation of safety checks DRC (we cannot - political society).  Using nslookup all forward and reverses two server instances and the virtual name of good sound.  Three other bodies VCHB in our environment work very well as well, but we do know the difference between those and this problematic.

    Have anyone of you experience something like this before?  Any ideas?

    Thank you!

    RDC Error.jpg

    We had this same problem. It happened only on one of our VCHB, our handle other forums did not have this problem. After having much poking around, we noticed that the name of public virtual/VCHB problem had an entry of computer object in AD, while (most) others have not done. We wondered if it was somehow related to the problem. We checked with VMware support and finally said it would be OK to delete the computer object in AD for the name of virtual\public. We have removed the subject of the AD, waited about an hour, and (somewhat to our surprise) this actually solved the problem - we have DRC in the virtual/public name with no problems.

  • Unable to connect to a remote server with remote desktop, another machine works

    Windows XP Professional Remote Desktop connection


    I recently bought a computer with Windows XP preinstalled Mac Professional and running Office remote version 2.1.0. I can't connect to my work server that is running Microsoft Exchange Server 2003. The most frustrating is that I also have an Air of Mac Book that has remote desktop version 2.0.1 which is able to connect.

  • How can I activate the touch screen with remote desktop

    I have an Asus ep121 windows 7 home tablet Office remotely to a desktop windows 7 Professional.

    Remote Desktop is not recognized any touch gesture. Windows 7 has a touchscreen native, is backing anyway to force the remote computer to accept the touch input of the Tablet?


    Windows 7 has a native touch screen probably support in that. Affect the gesture is unfortunately not possible on desktop connection remotely.

    When a remote desktop session is established between two computers (one with the ability to touch and others with no possibility of touch) as in your case. It may not be a chance to access a computer able to touch with your desktop capable of non-contact, although Windows 7 is touch wiz compatible.

    In order to use the touch features or programs, both computers must be installed with equipment able to touch. For example a touch screen, Touch pad, etc.

    Without compatible hardware on both computers by touch, touch capable desktop connection between two computers remotely maybe isn't possible.

    The only way to create an able to touch Remote Desktop connection is by installing equipment to touch interface on your desktop.

    Provide us additional information. So that we can help solve you the problem on your computer.

    Hope this information helps you.

  • Windows 7 computers not compatible Nap (for use with remote desktop gateway)

    I'm looking to implement gateway desktop remotely with NAP to enforce the integrity of the customer.

    I have gateway Remote Desktop works fine, the clients connect without problem. My problems started as soon as I implemented the NAP of the puzzle portion.

    I tried three different Windows 7 machines (two off the field) but I can't get an any of them to sign in, instead, I encounter the message "your computer cannot connect to the remote computer because your computer or device did not pass the network access Protection requirements defined by your network administrator." It seems that all the three machines are in fact considered non-compliant nap because they connect very well once I change to Non-compliant NAP network policy to allow full access. I even turned off all the policy settings in the Windows security SHV, but I still can connect, so it allows to confirm that my problem is with the machines showing non-compliant nap.

    Here are the steps that I took on the client:

    • Napclcfg.msc to enable the customer to RD gateway quarantine enforcement.
    • Services.msc to start the Network Access Protection Agent of service
    • Installed the certificate for Local computer > trusted root certification authorities

    I have read a number of results of research on this topic but nothing helped me to this day. Anyone know what could be my problem at hand?
