Remote Desktop connection for XP Pro to a pc Windows 7

I am trying to connect to a Windows 7 Pro pc using my Windows XP Pro computer.  I created the firewall for inbound and outbound rules to a specific port, set the port on the Terminal Server and upgraded the Remote Desktop Client in the XP box to 6.0.  However, I still can't connect to the Win7 pc unless I completely disable the firewall.  Could someone please give me a solution to this problem?

Thank you



The firewall blocks the traffic, you probably does not correctly configured the ports and its opening.

  • Remote Desktop connection logon

    I was able to use the remote desktop of Windows XP Pro. I have a computer in my living room and the other in the kitchen.  I can access computers from the other room .  What don't get me, is when using the living room computer for remote access to the computer in the kitchen, kitchen computer disconnects.  It is same for the kitchen for remote access to the living room.  I saw a remote technical support remote access to a computer and you can see them manipulate the desktop computer.  How this happen?

    They do not use the remote desktop connection for this - they use another form of support office automation tool.  There are several on the market that will do that.

    Remote Desktop connection resumes work stations, as you have seen and disconnects any account that is active at a time.

  • Through router remote desktop connection gets login screen, but the administrator is the only option (windows 7 pro)

    I have a new windows 7 pro system which has been configured to host a remote desktop connection.  There are 1 user account (active admin), the port number was changed from 3389 and I think that the firewall is disabled (it's Norton Internet Security and I tried to completely disable the firewall).

    When I established a remote connection from another computer on the same subnet, the client asks for login/password and the connection ends and goes directly to the screen of the user.

    This subnet has an internet connection via a firewall or router.  It has been configured to redirect incoming connections for the custom to the host port number.

    When I establish a remote connection from outside through the firewall I am invited to login/password, but the Welcome screen appears and the only options are administrator and other users.  Administrator is blocked for the account restrictions and using other users to type the login and the password does not work - it still fails on bad login/password.

    I've seen this problem described in other forums, but have not seen a solution - anyone got one?

    Thank you

    I guess that its due to the settings.

  • Several passwords for pop account are lost and the remote DESKTOP connections is no longer have registered credentials after logging out of the laptop to the domain and rebooted.

    Original title: passwords lost after reboot

    I have a user with multiple pop accounts and multiple rdp servers to which it connects

    When the laptop is connected to the domain he is allowed to save the credentials of rdp as usual and also its pop accounts work fine

    If the laptop is removed from the dock and hibernating come off hibernation works very well

    the problem starts when it restarts in fact the laptop when it is on the road.

    When he goes in outlook passwords for pop account are lost and all its Remote Desktop connections is no longer have recorded identification information

    his outlook passwords will save is no longer and rdp connections will save is no longer

    Once he returned to the office and connects back to the field all his pop account passwords are restored, the credentials of the rdp remain missing, but it can re - save them

    any ideas where to look for problem

    I also noticed inot laptopn with another user and will not experience the issue

  • Can we share a link between the Group of users for a direct connection for remote desktop connection?

    Hello community,

    I am running the scripts on one of our internal server - Windows Server 2008 R2, which I connect remotely by the connection service Office. My thought is, I want to share a link to users that are running on the machine local windows 7, which leads directly to this folder on the remote server where the script results are stored.

    Ofcourse Remote Desktop connection is the name of the computer, the user name and password. Therefore, the link I want to share to open this dialog box asking for details and take the user directly in the folder.

    I know that sounds like what we are doing to map a network drive. But just hoping if it means something.

    Looking for answers.

    Thank you

  • Remote Desktop connection: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit connects to the computer of Windows XP VPN

    Hi all

    I am trying to establish remote desktop TO my new laptop (Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit) on my computer (Windows XP) work via a VPN. The VPN Client connects to my network to work with no problems, but when I try to use the remote desktop connection I get an error message:

    Remote Desktop cannot connect to the remote computer to one of the following reasons:

    (1) remote access to the server is not enabled

    (2) the remote computer is disabled

    (3) the remote computer is not available on the network

    Make sure that the remote computer is on and connected to the network, and remote access is enabled.

    Items 1-3 are working well, so I guess that the problem is caused by another issue?
    I'd appreciate any help.
    Thank you
    Thanks for your response Al. To answer your qus:
    (1) cisco VPN Client for 64 - bit.

    (2) I don't know how to ping through the VPN tunnel - I don't see this option, anywhere in the Cisco customer (I'm not a professional, just a user)
    (3) Yes. Also, I can connect to the host PC via my old laptop XP (xp) of fine House, just not my new laptop (Windows 7 Home Premium) so the problem must be with my new laptop rather than at the end of the host PC.

    After that you connect through the VPN tunnel open a command window, IE. go in Start > run , then type cmdand type ping DRC-hostname or IP-address-DRC ping.

    FWIW, I have a desktop computer home wireless Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64 bit on my LAN that connects fine to a XP Pro SP3 32-bit Wired test machine using [DRC] remote desktop. Now XP Pro SP3 DRC test machine is configured for a static IP address and I have manually configured the network mask, gateway, DNS resolves and made sure that NetBIOS over TCP/IP is enabled in the properties of the NETWORK Ethernet card on the test computer.

    Just for fun, I checked the hashes of file for the file mstsc.exe on the Win 7 Home Premium 64-bit machine and a machine Win 7 Home Premium 32 bit I have and hashes were a bit different as the size of the files. The versions of the files are the same though. I assume that the difference is because we're 64-bit to 32...
