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.)

Welcome to the forum.

Do you have basic network connectivity between the two computers? Your post does not make this clear.

Since June 14th 2019, about 5 computers whom have staff login from home through a VPN > Remote desktop to their windows 7 computer, can't re-login after a disconnect. 
They login, do their work, disconnect, and if they try to reconnect to remote desktop it sits at configuring remote session and eventually throw the internal error has occurred. I then have to hard reboot the system in the office because the login screen

Since I upgraded to Windows 8, I am no longer able to save individual Remote Desktop Connection files as .rdp files. I am talking about the traditional Remote Desktop Connection application on the Desktop that was in previous Windows versions, not the
Remote Desktop App from the Windows 8 store.
When I try to click on the Save button I get "An error occurred while saving to file"
When I try to click on the Save As button I get "Unable to open connection file" with the file address being where I tried to save it with the file name at the end.
Also when I upgraded to Windows 8, my .rdp files disappeared from my Documents folder.
 I need to create different .rdp files for different programs that my employees get into on my server. Now I have to hand type all the info each time into the Programs tap on the Remote Desktop Connection window, because I can't save to an
.rdp file.
 I like the Remote Desktop App from the Windows store but it won't let me designate specific programs to use using standard dos notation (ie c:\program files\ etc..). It just goes to my server desktop.
 I want to promote Windows 8 to my employees but I need either .rdp files for the traditional Remote Desktop Connection or the ability to open specific programs using dos notation in the Windows Store Remote Desktop App.

We have a strange issue going on with a couple of freshly imaged Windows 7 workstations over here.

At first we were unable to remote in to them because of a message that the remote computer does not support NLA. Setting the option to Allow connections from computers running any version of Remote Desktop (less secure) works, but then RDP goes directly
to the remote machine and authentications happens there, which would be the case with a XP (or other non-NLA-capable) machine.
I tried troubleshooting the issue by opening the Certificates snap-in in mmc and deleting the Remote Desktop self-signed certificate but I seem to be unable to reissue/recreate it again...
I have read that i need to restart the Remote Desktop Configuration service in order for the certificate to recreate itself, but whenever I try to do this, Event Viewer logs the following error:
Log Name: System
Source: TerminalServices-RemoteConnectionManager 
Event ID: 1057
The Terminal Server has failed to create a new self signed certificate to be used for Terminal Server authentication on SSL connections. The relevant status code was An internal error occurred.
.

Any help or ideas on that would be greatly appreciated!

Meanwhile, you can try the following:
Check the MachineKeys directory.
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Crypto\RSA\MachineKeys\XXX

Copy the keys to a different directory by taking a backup and go into the file system and also delete the files in C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Crypto\RSA\MachineKeys\.
After deletion log off and log in to see how it works.

If this cannot help,
I recommend to post in Server Forum to get more insights.

I have Windows 7 Professional 64 bit. First of all let me say I have searched the forums, searched google and still can't find the solution for getting remote desktop to work AGAIN.

My wife uses it to connect to her school server. The server is used by her ENTIRE district, it is always up and running, absolutely nothing wrong on there end.

We HAD been connected and it worked fine for almost 2 years, all of a sudden it just stopped working. It gives this 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

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

I have also made sure everything is enabled and checked the settings, followed the guides to double check. I just don't understand why it suddenly doesn't work, Her coworkers it works fine. It is not an issue on the server she is connecting too.

I've disabled firewalls, uninstalled my Norton software... I've even reformatted my PC completely. It still wont connect when I enter her address. I've completely run out of ideas and my last option was calling Microsoft professional help but pay $200? Don't think so.. If anyone has any advice would be most appreciated!

Is your ISP blocking the port? I have seen this happen when someone says it worked yesterday and is not working today and nothing change on the workstation or the server. Does one of your Wife's co-workers have the same ISP as you? If so and it is working for them then you know it is not that problem.

I have also seen ISPs update the router/modems software or firmware in the background without you knowing and cause this type of problem. -WS

Hi there,

I have two computers connected to my home network (wi-fi) and my laptop is running windows xp pro, and I want to connect to my laptop using the Windows Remote Desktop Connection.

I have followed the official guide, but when it mentions typing in the IP address when connecting to a remote computer via the internet, it doesn't mention what to do if there are two computers on the same ip address.

So If I am sat at an internet cafe, or work, and I want to access my laptop which is at home, when I load up the Windows Remote Desktop Connection program, do I just type the ip address, and it will find my laptop and ask for my login details?

I use a Macbook laptop with Snow Leopard and an HP desktop running Windows 7 Professional. I'd like to be able to control the pc from the Mac using Remote Desktop Connection for Mac.
I've set up the pc as outlined in this forum and downoaded RDC onto the Mac. When I initiate RDC on the Mac, it asks for user name and password, and automatically plugs in the domain.
My pc doesn't have a user name or password, but if I leave those fields blank I get a message "Try again. The credentials that were used to connect are incorrect."
Can anyone help me out here?
Thanks.

A:Remote Desktop Connection for Mac (Windows 7)

You must have a password in order to connect via Remote Desktop, Your user name "should" be what your name is on the Start menu. Create a password in the User Account Control Panel, (Click on your display picture in the start menu for a shortcut) and then try connecting.

P.S. You might want to clear the domain field of whatever is listed if you are part of a workgroup.

Hello everyone. I'm trying to connect my home PC to my work PC.

Home - Vista Home Premium
Work - Windows 7 Ultimate

Given the two Operating Systems (Ultimate is the one being connected to), this should be possible. I changed the remote settings on my work PC to allow remote connections. I'm now home and trying to connect. When I input my work IP address (which I found with http://whatismyipaddress.com/) and user name and hit Connect, it asks me to enter my credentials. On this credentials screen, it shows my user account for the work computer with the correct login picture, so I know I have a connection.

My user name is already entered, but it still asks me for a password. I don't use a password at work, so I leave it blank and hit OK. It then gives me this error:

"An authentication error has occurred (Code: 0x80090304)."

No idea what this means. Should I try making a login password at work, or should I change some settings around? It's my first post, so sorry if I'm asking about something that was already recently addressed. Thanks in advance!

Hi,

Long time linux user, but first day of working remotely from home today so went out and bought a copy of Windows 7 Home Premium this morning.

I am trying to access my work PC remotely after doing a fresh install of windows and receiving the below:

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

I have established some sort of VPN connection through the browser with work (sorry I am not very technically inclined, icon says "network connect" in the taskbar and shows I am conected), our techie guy said then just run Remote Desktop and type in my computer name and should connect, which it is not.

I phoned a work buddy who is working remotely who said he can ping my work machine no problem.

I tried disabling the firewall but this has not helped.

Any ideas?

was told this would be a better forum to ask my question.
I've just upgraded to Windows 8 from Windows 7. The main issue I have with Windows 8 is that the remote desktop client is somehow broken for me. Whenever I use it, it blocks (i.e. I cannot interact with the remote computer) and then I get the pseudo-dialog
box stating reconnecting and it will reconnect and I get back the remote access. It does this all the time (about every few minutes). It looks like the client is dropping the connection and automatically re-establishing it.
Note that when I cannot interact with the remote computer, I can still ping it just fine. So clearly it is not a connection problem. I even have on the same machine a virtual machine machine running Windows XP Pro and in there the remote desktop client from
XP never drops the connection, nor blocks.


Anyone having similar issue or tips on how I could debug this?
Thanks,

I have an interesting challenge with Remote Desktop.

I am connecting via a VPN (using Shrewsoft) to a Windows XP SP3 computer in the UK. The tunnel is created successfully and when I connect using my own personal laptop (Lenovo) I am able to connect and login. My Lenovo is running Windows 7 Professional SP1.

The person I am configuring this connection for is using a Samsung RV511 running Windows 7 Home Basic. Once again the VPN connection is establsihed succesfully using Shrewsoft, however when connecting using Remote Desktop, the connection shows me the remote screen, with the ip address showing at the top, however the login dialogue box does not show. The background colour of the remote screen shows, just no login credentials box.

I have optimised the MTU settings on the computer involved, turned off bitmap caching on the Remote Desktop Connection settings, disabled all firewalls, all anti virus software, all to no avail. The computer is connecting to a DSL router via a wireless connection.

Any suggestions (aside from installing Team Viewer) would help. Thanks

Hi. I just viewed Kari Finn's clearly explained Remote Desktop Connection on Win10 and how to connect to remote computer, thank you for that. Good job! In my case though, I use Win XP Home edition. Do I have to have Win XP Pro edition to connect on RDC to Win 10 host using Hyper-V virtual creation?
Also, if that is the case, how can I reboot my remote computer XP OS and get onto the Start Up Menu page? The keyboard command is released to my Win 10 host computer on start up and I don't have access to keyboard commands (such as F8) until Win XP has been fully booted up. How do I access that Start Up menu page otherwise?

A:Remote Desktop Connection Explained - Question remote XP?

Hi Hibs, welcome to the Ten Forums.

You simply cannot use Windows XP Home as remote host, meaning you cannot connect to it using the Remote Desktop Connection. There are some hacks around the Internet but I very strongly advice against them.

(From Remote Desktop: frequently asked questions)
A workaround, in case you have or can find a valid Windows 7 Professional or Ultimate license is to install Windows 7 on a Hyper-V virtual machine, then install Windows Virtual PC and Windows XP Mode on that virtual machine. Works perfectly giving you Windows XP Pro SP3.

If the mouse and keyboard are released by the Windows XP vm back to host, you simply need to bring the pointer on the vm and click to get them back to vm. The F8 keyboard shortcut when booting XP up works then totally normally bringing up the advanced options boot menu:


To release the mouse and keyboard back to host, press CTRL + ALT + LEFT ARROW.

I have two computers I'd like to control using my laptop: A Gateway GT5692 running an AMD Phenom 8450 Triple-Core Processor 2.10 GHz that's got the 64-bit version of Windows Vista Home Premium and a HP SR501P with an AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core processor 4200+ 2.20 GHz running the 32-bit version of Windows Vista Home Basic.

All are tied to a router. The laptop runs wireless and the two desktops have a wired lan. All connect to the internet through the router tied to a DSL modem.

I can control the computers using Windows Remote Assistance but not with Windows Remote Desktop connection. What's up with that? http://b.tsgstatic.com/smilies/frown.gif

Remote Desktop Connection wants the IP or name of the remote computer to connect to. But suppose the remote computer is behind a router. The router has one WAN IP, say 192.45.63.98, which will be the same for all the computers connected off of that router, (when you google "my ip" from any of them) and then each computer connected off of the router will have a LAN IP, something like 10.0.0.6. So if I want to help the person connected to the 10.0.0.6 computer (and not the person connected at 10.0.0.9) off of this router what do I tell Remote Desktop Connection at my computer to reach them?

I am here at the office attempting to use remote desktop to connect into my Vista Ultimate SP1 laptop.

I get connected and logon, get the desktop and everything drawn on screen, the it totally freezes.

After a minute or so I get the dialog box showing that I have been disconnected and it will attempt to reconnect.

Attempting to logon at the console of that laptop now, I put in my password, it says Welcome, then a message comes up stating , "This network connection does not exist."

If I click on OK and attempt to logon again, it gives me the same message.

If I wait about 5 minutes, I am able to logon again.

In the event log I am seeing from source TermDD an event 56 stating, "The Terminal Server security layer detected an error in the protocol stream and has disconnected the client."

Is this because I am using SP2 on the XP machine instead of SP3 ?

I've seen similar issues but only on occasion when connecting from the same XP box to my home desktop running Ultimate SP1. Every attempt I may to get into this laptop results in the same thing.

Any thoughts on this? I'd appreciate any input!

Hi,

I dont think there is away for this, but can you connect to another machine that can still be used, but under a different setting on Windows XP Pro, like you can with Windows Servers?

I have a Windows 7 machine that I'm trying to setup to allow Remote Desktop connections so that I can access my machine when I'm away from home. I used this method in the past with other machines and always enjoyed the convenience of working at my home PC when away on vacation, etc.

After setting it up, I can access the machine using Remote Desktop Connection from within the local LAN network using the computer name. However, I cannot access it using my external IP address which should be the router which should forward it to my personal computer. The error I get says "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."

Here is everything I've done so far:

I've enabled Remote Assistance connections via the System Properties and Allowed connects from any version of Remote Desktop

The Remote Desktop services (3 of them I think) are all enabled and started.

I've checked and Windows Firewall is allowing port 3389 through

I have an Asus RT-N66R router which I've added a Port Forwarding rule to forward that port to the LocalIP of my personal machine.

A:Can't get Remote Desktop working on my machine - help

Hi and Welcome to SevenForums.

I understand i am not answering your question directly with this reply but have you considered using TeamViewer to do this task?
Download Here - TeamViewer - Free Remote Control, Remote Access & Online Meetings

It is free for personal use and i've never come across an issue using this method of a remote connection from outside my home in all the years i have used it (within my home i use remote desktop).

Is there a reason for needing Remote Desktop?

Regards,
Jamie

Hello all
I am having an issue with Remote Desktop Connection.
I can connect to my Laptop from my Desktop using Remote Desktop Connection but when I try to connect to my Desktop from my Laptop I get an error stating that Network Level Authentication is not supported on the machine I am connecting from, i.e. the Laptop.
Both the Laptop and the Desktop are running Windows 7 Ultimate.
This used to work fine and I am unable to find what has changed.
I have even tried doing a Repair Install of Windows 7 Ultimate on the Laptop but still have the same issue.
Does anyone have any ideas, short of reinstalling Windows 7 Ultimate from scratch?
Thanks in advance
Kevin

Hello everyone,

I want to be able to connect to my Vista Home Premium 32bit machine through an XP machine and print using a printer connected via USB on the XP machine. A little history: I had XP Pro and used remote desktop and printing worked fine. We upgraded the computer and OS to Vista Home Premium 32bit. I understand this version doesn't have remote desktop, but I found a way to get it to work online and now we can connect remotely to the desktop using Remote Desktop.

However, when I try to print something while being connected remotely, it won't print. It doesn't find the USB printer. Please I just want to figure this out. We are using the Vista machine as a remote desktop that houses our excel files and Quickbooks. We connect to this remotely from an XP laptop and 2 Macbook Pro's. Printing doesn't work on either of these computers. They are also on separate networks if that changes anything.

I have read a lot on this and everything points to the same answer -> go to Local Resources in Remote Desktop before you log in remotely and check mark the "select the devices and resources you want to use in your remote session: Printers and Clipboard". Both are checked. Still nothing.

As the topic states...Trying to log into my W7 desktop from my W8 laptop and it keeps saying wrong password. I can login fine using the exact same username and password from another W7 machine..

What am I doing wrong here?

Thanks..

A:Trouble logging into W7 machine via Remote Desktop

You have to use the same username & password that is on the machine you are trying to connect to. Otherwise use Teamviewer to do Remote Desktop.

I have VPN service running on my Linksys DD-WRT router at home, so I can VPN back into my home network when using unsecured wireless internet on travel. I also have remote desktop port forwarding to my home machine if I want to just remote desktop in without using the VPN. However, often times I will VPN in, then remote desktop to my machine. Lately, I can VPN in, but remote desktop to the machine's NAT'ed address on the local network doesn't work. I used to be able to do it that way and I'm not sure what has changed. The home machine runs Windows 7 and the laptop I use on the road for VPN'ing back in runs Windows XP. Any ideas why after I VPN in to the home network I can't see any other machines on the network anymore? I have a folder shared on the home machine that I'd like to map to my laptop once I've VPN'ed in but it can't see that either.

Any ideas or help would be appreciated.

A:VPN'ed into home router, but can't remote desktop to machine on LAN

The home network subnet is 192.168.1.0/24 using DHCP (with the home machine statically keeping it's x.x.x.147 address) and the VPN pool consists of two addresses of 192.168.1.160 and 192.168.1.161. Network sharing and discovery is all turned on for the Win7 home machine, as well as the XP machine.

I've recently installed wireless at home and run 2 pc's on it, accessing the web via Comcast broadband. All works well when accessing my office PC via XP's 'Remote access web connection'. I can transfer files between office & home and print to machines that are configured on the host (office) to LPT & COM ports.
Last week I replaced my ageing Epson C80 home printer with a new HP Deskjet 5850 wireless printer. It works great and I can print from my 2 home pc's via wireless.
What I can't figure out is how to configure it on my office host pc so that it can see it via RAWC. I've tried adding a port with the printers IP Address but that doesn't work. Have also tried HP's web sights as well as Wxp's but I guess the wireless printer is too new. Any ideas anyone ?

Unchecking the Allow Remote Assistance connections to this computer box, and selecting the Don't allow connections to this computer options in the "First" section of the tutorial below will prevent this for you.

Okay I have seen some machines where when you remote desktop into them from a single screen machine to a dual screen machine it will shuffle over all apps to the primary screen and you can keep working. I have seen others that will have dual screens and it will leave the app open on the toolbar but you can't get to it because it is on the 2nd screen and htings don't get shuffled over. Now I have a 3rd type of behavior and I need to figure out why PCs are not all behaving the same.

This new symptom is connecting into a Vista machine that has 2 screens. All the apps themseleves stay on the screen they were left on but the sidebar does squish to the First screen.

Some machines -
Dual screen app 1 on screen 1 and app 2 on screen 2
Remote desktop with single screen both apps show on screen 1.

Other machines -
Dual screen app 1 on screen 1 and app 2 on screen 2
Remote desktop with single screen show app on screen 1 and app 2 shows in toolbar but you have to close it and reopen it to get it on screen 1.

New symptom Vista machines -
Dual screen app 1 on screen 1 and app 2 on screen 2
Remote desktop with single screen show app on screen 1 and app 2 shows in toolbar but you have to close it and reopen it to get it on screen 1 but sidebar.exe shuffles to screen 1.

Ultimately I would like them all to behave like the top option but I don't know where you force this behavior.

Hey,

I've been trying forever now to RDP from a Windows 7 computer into a Windows 10 computer from two remote locations. Somethings i have to mention that might help:
I already allowed the connection on my Windows 10 computer through the "Remote" tab
Windows 10 computer is on a "Private" network (Cannot verify if the Windows 7 computer is)
Allowed literally every rule through the firewall for RDP (Windows 7 computer is allowed for public and private)
Using only the IP address of the computer (Windows 10 computer)

I'm really open to any ideas. Can anyone help me out?
