Remote Desktop can't connect to Winows 7 Home Premium

Q: Remote Desktop can't connect to Winows 7 Home Premium

I'm afraid I might already know the answer - is it true the only Professional and Ultimate versions of Windows 7 can accept Remote Desktop Connection requests? I read on a post from 2009 that "any version of Windows 7 can act as a Remote Desktop client, but only Ultimate and Profession can host a Remote Desktop."

I'm not sure I completely understand that - I do understand what host and client mean.

However,d despite lots of different setting changes, I can't connect to this Windows machine using Remote Desktop.

In my job at IBM, I connect to hundreds of computers daily using Remote Desktop, easily. That's why the OS version issue seems like a strong, but frustrating, possibility.

Thanks

Preferred Solution: Remote Desktop can't connect to Winows 7 Home Premium

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

The host in remote situations is the person taking control.
The client is the one being assisted.

Are there any new setting changes I need to make on my XP Pro machine, so I can access it with Remote Desktop from my Vista Home Premium machine?

I'm able to RDP into a box with Server 2003, but I cannont access my local XP Pro machine with my new Home Premium laptop.

Thanks

Also, I can access shared folders on the computer running XP from my Vista laptop... in case that matters.

I also downloaded and used TeamViewer, and although it worked I was only able to take control of the XP machine if I'd already logged in, which isn't what I need.

Thanks in advance.

Hi everyone,
I have scoured the web for a solution to this. Yes, I know MS built Vista HP not to be able to "receive" Remote Desktop.

Right now my Vista HP 64 can easily "send" Remote Desktop out to my Windows 7 Pro and XP Pro systems.
So! Is there a current tool/hack anywhere which I can use to RD "TO" VHP???

I am not interested in any third party tools such as LogMeIn where my credentials leave my house. I want to stay completely behind my firewall.

Any working solution will be really appreciated.

This is from MS's Windows Vista Help:

You cannot use Remote Desktop Connection to connect to remote (host) computers running the following editions of Windows Vista:

? Windows Vista Starter

? Windows Vista Home Basic

? Windows Vista Home Basic N

? Windows Vista Home Premium

I guess I should have done my research before I purchased Home Premium...

When I had XP on my office PC (in my upstairs office), I would often use remote desktop from my laptop while watching TV and such. Can't do that anymore!

Is there any work around for this other than PCAnywhere or a similar product?

Thanks!

Well, you could use any variety of VNC to achieve a work around. They aren't nearly as seamless as the windows remote desktop, but they do work in a pinch.

Hi guys... I have a series of questions about this topic:

I'm using Vista Home Premium 64-bit SP1 on my desktop PC... and on my laptop I have Home Premium 32-bit SP1... when I'm away from home and on my laptop (school, work, etc) I would like to connect to my desktop at home so I can run stuff, etc etc etc... but the problem is I don't know how to set these things up!! I don't even know if it's possible for a 32-bit to connect to a 64-bit.

As for the connection on the desktop, it is hooked up on a Linksys WRT54GL router running DSL. Laptop would connect mainly wirelessly. I don't have any "aftermarket" firewall programs on my desktop (only Windows Firewall enabled).

I've never done anything with remote desktop before except back in the days when I had dedicated servers (those had info provided with remote desktop connection etc etc). I'm desperate to find a way to do it with my own machines!!

Any help appreciated. Good day!

Okay, so I beat my head against my desk for 20 minutes this morning because I couldn't see the "Remote Desktop" section under the "Remote" tab in "System Properties" under "Allow Remote Access" in "System and Security"...

Then I realized that one of my machines is running Win7 Home Premium and the other is running Win7 Professional. According to MS's website, Win7HP users can't allow a remote desktop connection.

So my questions is... what is there a "Remote Setting" link and what does "All Remote Assistance" connections to this computer do if not allow "Remote Desktop" connections?

I guess I don't understand the difference. Color me ignorant, but I thought (probably wrongly) that Remote Desktop and Remote Assistance were the same thing... But they aren't, right?

Thanks...

A:Question about Remote Desktop and Win7 Home Premium

I searched for differences between Remote Desktop and Remote Assistance in Win7 and didn't really find a side-by-side comparison. I found articles talking about the differences in XP, but not Win7.

I did notice one difference: With RA the person needing help has to initiate the process, right? I thought that I read that RD was faster than RA... is that correct? Any other differences in capabilities? Thanks...

Hello --

I'm thinking of upgrading to Win 7 home premium since XP is no longer supported. I run it through my Mac with parallels.

Stupid questions, maybe, but I'll ask them:

Does home premium have remote desktop and if so is it possible to use it with a wireless internet connection? I seemed to have been able to do this with XP, but the bitrate was slow, and it's jut been upgraded to handle streaming audio (the work that I do streams audio from a server, rather than downloading it; just the way my employer wants it).

Do I need an ethernet cable running to my Mac, or can I use the airport connection (the wireless internet option) to stream audio?

A:Does Win 7 home premium: remote desktop: wireless internet possible

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

You can compare the features here:
Compare Windows 7 Editions

All versions of W7 can connect to other computers using a Remote Desktop Connection (RDC). But only Pro and above can host an RDC session. In other words, only Pro and above cal receive an RDC call.

I use a wireless connection with RDC. I can stream audio and video via RDC via wireless. I'm just not sure about an airport connection. You let us know :-)

Hi, can anyone tell me if Windows 7 Home Premium supports remote desktop connections?  In the "compare" list that Microsoft gives comparing all versions of Windows 7 there is no indication that it doesn't.  But in looking at the instructions on
this page:
http://4sysops.com/archives/how-to-setup-remote-desktop-with-windows-7/
On the screenshot under #3 - on my computer the bottom part of that window called REMOTE DESKTOP doesn't show up!  So just wondering if I need a different version.  

A:Does Windows 7 Home Premium Support Remote Desktop Access

All editions of Windows 7 include Remote Desktop Connection.

 

You can use Remote Desktop to initiate a connection from any edition of Windows 7.
You can connect to computers running Windows 7 Professional, Windows 7 Ultimate, or Windows 7 Enterprise.
You can't use Remote Desktop Connection to connect to computers running Windows 7 Starter, Windows 7 Home Basic, or Windows 7 Home Premium.

Hello,
I am trying to access my Laptop using Remote Desktop, but unfortunately after hours of troubleshooting I gave up :-(
I hope the following feedback of what I've done or observed will help solve this issue:
- No listening on TCP Port 3389 was displayed after executing netstat in cmd line

- Remote Desktop Service in services.msc is set to automatic and restarted several times
- TermService running in Task Manager with PID 1196. Netstat shows however that UDP is listening on port 5355 for that PID

- RD access is activated accordingly in the system control panel.
- Deactivating the firewall didn't help
- May be an important observation : Since following two drivers are not listed under the Device Manager:

Hi All.

I have a Win 7 Home Premium box along with 4 WinXP boxes in a simple network. My Win 7 box can Remote Desktop to any of the WinXP boxes, and be used to "drive" them, no problem.

I added a new machine yesterday that came with Win 7 Home Premium. After searching through other threads, I found it was stated that if I upgrade the new box to Win 7 Pro or Ultimate, I can then use my original Win 7 Home Prm to connect to, and "drive" the new Win 7 Ult. box.

I successfully upgraded the new box, it's now confirmed to be running Win 7 Ultimate. I have also disabled the firewall, and checked the Remote Box Settings:
Allow connections from computers running any version of Remote Desktop (less secure)..

However, the Home box cannot connect to the Ultimate box. It times out with the following error:
Remote Desktop can't connect to the remote computer for one of these reasons:
1) Remote access to the server is not enabled
2) The remote computer is turned off
3) The remote computer is not available on the network.

All three of these conditions are false.

Please help!!!

Thanks,
Jerry

PS - I can ping the machine, so it's "there" in some form or fashion...

You should forward the ports on the router to the IP Addresses of the machines, that you want to connect to. On Symantec PC Anywhere, it is ports 5631 and 32, on Windows remote desktop connection it is port 3389 that needs to be forwarded.

So, I had remote desktop working on my computer for about two years and now it doesn't work anymore. Every time I try to access it from another computer (I don't have and don't know how to get a domain name, so I just use my IP address, which I get from whatismyip.com), I get an error message saying I cannot connect to the remote computer.

As far as I know, I have done everything right. I enabled remote desktop in system properties, I created a static IP address in TCP/IP properties, and I configured my router to forward the default port (3389) to the correct local IP address I specified. I have disabled windows firewall and put mstsc on my list of exceptions for the firewall that I use (BitDefender). I also pinged my IP address and received all packets sent.

I have disabled the firewall, cleared the remote desktop cache, remove the MRU entries from the registry, verified that port 3389 is open via telnet. I have been bashing my head for days trying to figure out why this one box is not working. The problem occurs for every user on the box including the admin.

I don't receive the box that prompts for warning if there is a server authentication issue but I think that is because I selected ignore at some point and said yes to continue. I'm not sure where that cache resides to delete that selection. I'm not sure if that is where my problem lies or not. Can anyone please assist?

Have tried all options of repair that Vista has, but they don't work. Also have tried disabling and enabling my network adapter, but it doesn't work, infact Vista freezes on doing so, though the result is achieved if I do a forced restart. Also, did a complete system format but this doesn't change the issue. Any solutions possible? Thanks in advance!

I have a desktop HP (windows 7) and a new macbook pro 15 on which i am running both mac os x and windows 7. I can connect from my desktop to my laptop using remote desktop connection but not the other way around. I have a network set up and can see the computers are connected. I opened port 3389, enabled remote access on both machines, turned off firewall, avg, everything but nothing works. Whenever i try to connect it says initiating remote connection for a while then says 1) remote access is to the server is not enabled 2) the remote computer is turned off, 3) the remote computer is not available on the network. Btw both machines have Win 7 Ultimate. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I would try downloading this application and see if you still have the same problems.

Hello.
 
So basically this whole thing started with me wanting to mod a game i had, and adding a car to it. As i was searching around i got on one website which was a Russian website and it basically downloaded around 13 unknown program, and non of them were a mod. In retaliation agents the commies i downloaded avg to my PC and it got rid of most of them but i still had these weird ads on the side of my browser so i thought i bring out the big guns and use Malwarebytes on my PC. i defeated the commies and got rid of all the Nuke programs they hit me with, but sense the Russians as we know from history are very persistent, they  somehow managed to attack my symbol of freedom which is my internet browsers. I have tried every simple method i can find on the internet, which involved safe mode and all that other stuff, and i am now in a position where i may have to create a new republic and start over, and by that i mean spend $100 on a windows 7 CD sense i lost my original (don't ask how). anyways, i am not very skilled in the art of computing but i am a quick learner so id appreciate the help.

Hello Everyone,

I' m using Vista 64 bit Home Premium.

Many apps cannot connect to the internet during installation or updates. Programs such as Google Earth and Turbotax will not install because they cannot access internet during installation process. Some programs, such as Visual Studio, used to connect to internet but now cannot. I have disabled firewalls (defender) and uninstalled Norton and Symantec.

I sure would appreciate some guidance and advice.

Check in the tutorial section for allowing programs to connect to the net. Normally Vista will ask you if it's OK.

I have set up a VPN in windows 7 and from my computer i am able to connect to it. I also tried connecting on a virtual machine and it connected fine(the virtual machine is Win7 as well)

I have already opened ports in my router and both computers connect to the internet on the same connection.

I also enabled ports on the firewall but with no success, i also disabled the firewall on both machines.

the credentials im using are correct also as well as the name and i get the common 800 error

Have you created the VPN via your router?

Is the Vista PC on another IP Range?

I think I may be infected with malware which creates the "Unable to connect to proxy server error".
 
I have checked the lan settings in MS Internet Explorer 11 and in Google Chrome.
 
Microsoft Windows Home Premeium SP1
 
The Laptop is a HP Pavilion dv6 Notebook PC
64 Bit OS
 
The error message is:
 
Unable to connect to the proxy server
Error Code: ERR_Proxy_Connection_Failed
 
I have run:
 
AVG free
Malwarebytes free
RKill
and OLT
 
I can not get to the web through the browser on the laptop but can use FTP.  Else I can download programs from the desktop and transfer them to the lab top via a USB Drive.
 
I believe it best to start from scratch in regard to providing logs as I hope to be directed.
 
Thanks in Advance,

Hi there, this is my first post on this forum, so take easy on me I've been browsing the internet for hours, eventhough it seems to be a somewhat reoccuring issue I couldn't find the solution yet, so I hope my own thread will work better.

I've recently purchased a new notebook " HP dv6-1199eg ", specs :



Proc:
AMD Turion? X2 Dual-Core Mobile Prozessor RM-75
? 2,2 GHz, 1 MB L3-Cache

Memory :
4096mb DDR2

OS :
Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit Service Pack 1

Network Cards :

Atheros AR9285 802.11b/g WiFi Adapter
Realtek RTL8168D/8111D Family PCI-E GBE NIC


Router :

Siemens Gigaset SX541 with a German ISP


Problem :
Everytime I try to connect to a WPA Wi-Fi connection I get an error message telling me I've timed out while trying to authenthicate.
The SSID is "BermudaDreieck", the wpa-key 10 1keys long, only numbers and letters.
When I disable the WPA option my notebook connects without a problem and I get a stable and fast connection.
Other Notebooks didn't have problems connecting to the WPA network before, neither did my dad's PC.

I've already updated the firmware of my router as well as the driver of the Atheros card.

The errorlog I get ( sorry its in german ) :

Go ahead and Navigate to your Internet Settings. 
 
(Win + R) to Open Run Box
- Then Open INETCPL.CPL
- Check Connections Tab 
- And Click "LAN Settings"
 
There should be 3 Check Boxes
- Make sure the Proxy Server is Deselected
- And that Automatically Detect Settings is Selected
Then Click Okay and Apply
 
Does it look like the Proxy Still Remains? 
If so the proxy may be embedded elsewhere also.

My home network centres on a LinkSys WAG200G router using WEP encryption and comprises the following wireless connections:

Dell XPS M2010 (Vista Ultimate 32 bit)
Dell Studio 1737 (Vista Home Premium 32 bit)
Sony VAIO (Windows XP)
HP C8180 Printer/Scanner
Nintendo Wii

Everything works correctly except the Dell XPS M2010 which connects to the network but as 'Local Only' and does not see the internet unless the following is followed:

1. Shut down/Log off all computers/printer/wii
2. Log on to Dell XPS M2010
3. Reset router (power off for 10 seconds)

It then connects to the internet and other machines may be started as required. If another PC is already connected when the M2010 is started up then it will not see the internet (still able to use printer and transfer files locally)

All operating systems are fully up to date and disabling Norton 360 or plugging the M2010 into one of the router's ethernet ports make no difference.

I've compared everything I can between the settings on the two Dell machines but can see no obvious reason for the difference in operation - please help!!!

I am using Windows 7 Home and Premium and I am unable to connect to Linux machine. I am getting the pop up for providing the username and password to connect to Linux Machine but it rejects the same. I had the same issue with Windows 7 Professional and I resolved it through chaging the policy as below.

Control panel - administrative tools-Local Security policy-local policies- Security options- network security: "LAN Manager authentication level" Changed to "Send LM & NTLM responses"

I came to know that there is no "Local Security policy " on Windows 7 Home and Premium version. Please help me to solve this issue. Thanks in advance.

Azeeb, how are you trying to connect to your Linux machine? Personally, I am using ssh. A free version is included with the Cygwin distribution. Using this tool, I don't have to worry about the local security policy. Which software do you use to connect?

I have a desktop computer at home running windows 7 ultimate, and I'd like to be able to access it with my laptop, running windows XP home edition. I've configured my desktop to allow being connected to by all versions of remote desktop, and indeed I can connect to it with my laptop while at home (that is, when both desktop and laptop are in the same network). I do that by entering either the desktop computer's name or its private IP address (the one assigned by the router). I've made sure to forward the 3889 port to that specific computer.
Of course, the whole idea is to be able to access my desktop while not at home, but I can't seem to be able to do that. I enter the IP provided to me by my ISP, and I get the message that "this computer could not connect to the remote computer. try connecting again. if the problem persists, contact the owners of the remote computer or the network administrator" (I'm translating, my XP is in Hebrew). Trying again does not help.
Also, I don't know whether this is significant or not, but if I try to connect to my desktop with my laptop while at home, I can't do that by using the gateway's IP. I have to use the private IP address.
just to be sure, I've tried disabling the resident windows firewall and my antivirus, but it did not help.
I'd appreciate your help!
