Will not accept RDP incoming

Q: Will not accept RDP incoming


I have done everything I can think of to allow incoming RDP sessions, but it is not working.

I have checked the box under system properties/remote (Allow Remote Assistance connection to this computer) and I have check the box under McAfee Firewall/ports and system services for port 3389.

I have also temporarily turned off the firewall....no good.

I know that system I am RDP'ing from works because I can get to a Windows XP machine.

Thanks in advance.

Preferred Solution: Will not accept RDP incoming

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.)

To make a long story short, I'm following this guide to allow my Dreamcast to connect through my computer's broadband connection.

I got through it all fine until I have to create a connection that can accept incoming connections. I go into the new connection wizard but on the screen to set up an incomming connection, upon clicking next, I get the following message (sorry for using putfile):http://putfile.com/pic.php?pic=10/29922373750.jpg&s=x10

I'm assuming it's an XP Home Edition thing, which is what I'm running, but I'm not sure.

A:Accept Incoming Connections

Read other 6 answers

Hi all!

Yesterday, after my Win 8.1 box did an automatic restart because of updates, I can't connect to it anymore! When I try, the client gives me an error after approx 30 seconds, suggesting that the remote PC might be turned off, or having network related errors! I've been connecting to this machine this way for the last 6 months, and I just doublechecked that incoming RDP is turned on, and a "netstat -a -o" also shows that the port should be listening for connections. I also tried turning the built-in firewall off, no luck.

Anyone with suggestions? I really need RDP, since it's the only way to gain full productivity (ie multiple screens, printing to local printer etc)

FIrst of all, hi everybody, this is my first post here!!

i use win xp pro w/sp 2 and usb adls modem, and this is my problem: i created a vpn with a friend of mine, everything is perfect, except for one thing: i can connect to him (i mean, he acts as server) but i cannot be the server, when he tries to connect to me, he gets a connection refused error.. another example, i can play games as client but not as host... i can use a software for remote desktop (VNC free edition) and i can see his desktop (act as client) but he can't see mine (he gets timeouts and connection refused errors)...

i shutdown the firewall, the antivirus, and lowered internet security in windows, but i never managed to make it work!

apart from that, every p2p program works perfectly, so i'm a bit confused...

help...! i don't know how to fix this issue! wacko.gif

thanks in advance!

A:XP doesn't accept incoming connection, Help!

Do you have a DSL router with a firewall on it? Do you know what port is being used when you're trying to act as a server? If so, have your friend try to telnet to that port. You can also try locally telnetting to that port. If he can't, then the port is being blocked for some reason. If you can't, then there may be something else going on. If you're able to change the port, try that.

My husband and employer both sent me an email that shows the correct date in the email time line, but Outlook shows a recieve date of April 2008.

It doesn't happen on every email, just some. We've all checked our clock dates and their correct. Talked to my Internet Service Provider and they said it was an Outlook problem.

Any ideas?

I followed the following steps on windows 8

1. Everything working I can ping Google
2. Create new incoming vpn network
3. I can no longer use DNS pings to outside addresses don't work although the router still seems to be the DNS server and I can use DNS from another machine on the network including from a vm running on the same machine
4 nslookup to internal and external addresses give a no response from server error
5 Delete the vpn connection and everything works again

My network settings for the pc are all automatic (although I have tried statically setting the ip etc as well)
The settings for the VPN are simply no tcpv6 tcp 4 has a range of ip addresses

I can connect to the VPN from an external network

I have tried turning off the windows firewall but this had no effect nslookup still failed

Any clues how to fix?

Hi bass740 From what I see, HelionResearch.com is the website of a Marketing Company that offer advertising and performance monitoring solutions for other companies. My guess is that some website(s) you went on uses their services and when loading that page, it tried to load content from HelionResearch.com as well, but your Firewall blocked it since it wasn't needed or unwanted.

Hi, techguys!

I need help with the following problem. I'm on a LAN provided by my ISP, but the LAN is very hostile (when I first connected two years ago, I got hacked within something like 15 minutes). I have closed all my ports by disabling all kinds of Windows XP services (Home) and I installed Jetico Firewall, which I think is really good. I log everything, allowed and blocked traffic.

Jetico allows one to see ARP packets going out and coming in. And that's where my problem lies: Almost nothing goes out, but every second, I get about 8 ARP packets! That seems like very much. No addresses on this LAN are trusted. I have disabled NetBIOS and even uninstalled Microsoft Client from the Internet Connection.

I was wondering if there is a way to somehow regulate this traffic. I've tried blocking the packets, but the Internet connection went dead.
Isn't there a way to limit this traffic? Maybe by hardcoring the gateway's and DNS servers' MAC addresses? If yes, how do I do that?
In the command line it says that my gateway MAC is dynamic. Does that mean I have no control over this crazy stuff?
And how can I determine the MAC of my DNS servers?

I have Ethereal installed, but I have no idea whatsoever what to do with it besides watching all those packets come in. I was alarmed by the administrator of firewallleaktester[dot]com that when I registered there for the mailing list, his logs showed some specially crafted packets that 'could only be t... Read more

Most of the incoming mail messages are, for unknown reasons, going into the deleted folder rather than into the inbox. This began about two weeks ago when I upgraded to Norton 360 Premium. Maybe this has nothing to do with that, but everything was working prior to it. I am using MS Outlook 2003. I have not made any changes to my Outlook. How do I correct this annoying situation.

A:Incoming Emails

Yes, it could be a coincidence, but I would first suspect Norton. If you can't find any Norton options relative to handling incoming mail I would uninstall it, at least long enough for testing. Symantec has a very good Norton Removal Tool, and that link also gives instructions on how to make sure you have the Product key saved for a later re-installation.

Hello, ive been trying to get some information about R600, but internet is confusing xD
how would it be?
how much would it cost?
And ive heard that would be better than the G80, cause of the 512bits 120 GB/s rate transfer, 64 unified shaders, etc, etc....but how much expensive? xD

Greetings from Chile

A:what do you know about the incoming R600?

The X2800XTX is going to be ~$600US. It is better than the G80 with 64 Unified Shaders doing 4 ops per clock so theoretically 256 Unified Shader ops per clock cycle. It will run at 700/2400 and will have 153.6GB/s memory bandwidth. It should be about 1.5x more powerful than G80. G81 should be a little more of a competition, but the R600 should still be better than the G81 aka 8900GTX.

A friend has a problem with his internet connection. While online a message pops up saying 'You have just ignored an incoming call', and his connection is lost. On checking he has not had any calls. What could be causing this, and how can it be solved. Cheers.

A:Incoming Call

Guessing its a dial-up connection?

If he has "call waiting" enabled on the phone line it puts a "beep" on the line when a call is waiting (when the line is otherwise engaged, in this case with an internet connection).

Thats what the modem will be detecting I would guess. If the caller then hangs up, the beep while they were waiting can often be enough to disrupt the connection.

How does he know that nobody was calling? If they had given up and hung up?

A friend of mine got some malware on her 2-month-old Win7 laptop, so she went to Bellsouth/Yahoo customer service. They tried to sell her a $450 package for 3 years of virus cleanups. Part of their sales pitch, while they were logged into her computer, was to pop up a list with a bunch of IP addresses on it, claiming that these were the incoming connections for the last 24 hours -- "...and notice how many of them were from outside the US."

This sounds bogus to me. I'm not aware of anything on Win7 that does incoming IP logging on a new, only-slightly-tuned system.

What do you think? Was this real, or fake? (If real, I really need to know how to make use of that log myself.)

I have had a web-based email account (starspath) for two years and have had no problems until recently. For whatever reason I can send email, but can't receive any at all. I have not exceeded storage capacity and never open suspicious attatchments. However, I do suspect that may account may be contaminated from some unknown source. It's not a computer issue since I have the same problem whether I'm using my computer, a friends, or a public computing center. When I send messages to this account from an alternate account, they immediately return as "undeliverable", "couldn't find mail exchanger or IP address". I forwarded this problem to the starspath tech support, but inquiries are not exactly acknowledged in a timely manner if you know what I mean. I recently entered the job market (again) and depend on this account as a contact source from prospective employers. Anybody have a solution for me??
Thank You!!

A:No Incoming Mail

To be honest this sounds like something your mail provider will need to sort out. In the meantime you could set up an alternative email address and then set up a rule in the problematic address to forward on to the new address. Then when you want to receive you can receive from the new address.
To be honest I dont think this will work, but its the only thing I can think of and you sound quite desperate

Has anyone heard of this problem? I have AT&T DSL/phone service over a landline. My house phone is a cordless. About half the incoming phone calls have a fluttering sound for the first second that the caller does not hear. I can be heard while that is occurring, but cannot hear the caller. Sometimes, but not every time, this will disrupt the internet service mometarily. If I am streaming audio, it knocks me off the stream and I have to restart by pressing the 'pause' button on the player, which turns it into a 'play' button. Pressing that restarts the audio stream.

I work remotely on a VPN connection (Cisco). When this occurs, I am knocked off the connection. When I pull up the VPN window, it shows that I can disconnect (in a similar manner that the media stream shows that I can 'pause'). I click to disconnect, it changes to 'connect', and clicking that allows me to re-connect.

It has been recommended by the AT&T folks, and on another forum, that I try another filter. No one has yet told me that they have ever heard of this problem. I would like to know more about the problem before I buy another filter, which is why I'm asking if anyone has ever heard of such a thing. Thanks for your help.

In my recent entry I called attention to the Spazbox.net domain and the strangest thing that struck my eye was the paradoxical Alexa Traffic and the lack of SEM strength. It made no sense.We speculated it could be IRC, SPIM, or some other source. I mentioned IRC en passant because on the Alexa snapshot of the page there was a reference to IRC on the webpage snapshot.For those who aren't hip to IRC (Internet Relay Chat) here is the official definition: A facility that allows people -- from many different places in the world at one time -- to chat in real time. The chats, or forums, are typed remarks, and they can be either public or private. This, understandably, is a wildly popular consumer area of the internet. A sort of "ham radio" for the '90s, it offers intimacy combined with autonomy. Many celebrities are also talking to the public at pre-announced times, so IRC has commercial publicity uses, too. Business meetings can be conducted in the same way.The official definition fails to mention that IRC is a favorite hang-out for script- kiddies, pedophiles, hackers, couriers, warez groups, porn fetish clubs, vampires... you get the idea. (I am sure nice people hang there too.)PaperGhost, the top gun at VitalSecurity has broken part of the riddle.http://www.revenews.com/wayneporter/archives/000594.html

I have Microsoft Outlook. This has been going on for a week or more, but doesn't happen all the time. When I click send/receive, the bar indicates email is coming through, but stops and nothing actually comes through. If there is one email, the bar goes all the way across, then stops, and nothing happens. If there are several emails, the bar stops somewhere in the middle and that's as far as it goes. Nothing comes through. I have to restart the computer, and then when I go into my email program, everything is fine. One strange thing... when I go to restart, before shutting down, a box appears on my desktop - ccSvcHst.exe - end program, with a prompted to "end now" or "cancel." When I hit "end now," I notice the Microsoft Outlook icon on the desktop blinks a bit before the computer shuts down. Once it restarts, my email program works well for a while. But this happens about twice a day. I don't know what is going on. I'd really appreciate someone's help.

We get our emails through our hosting site. I'd like to be able to have more control over the emails that come into our inboxes on our computers.

Scenario: We each have at least one email address through our website host. I am the administrator of the site/account, and would prefer, rather than going to the site itself, to have the emails for two addresses come to my mailbox before I allow them to pass to the recipient's inbox. I have asked our host about the ability to do so through them, but they have not answered me. (I just sent that question off again, and am waiting to see if I get an answer this time!) I'm trying to do this in order to better control spam and phishing that one person insists on opening and replying to.

I previously had Norton 360 on her computer, and most of the spam would come to that spam inbox, but she would still open it, AND reply to it! So, I'd like to have more control over what she actually sees in her inbox. Is there a program that allows this? Or, a webhost who allows this? I'm not opposed to switching hosts as our current host is not very easy to work with, and I'm getting fed up trying to communicate with people who don't speak or understand English very well.

I really hope somebody replies to my inquiries this time!

My wife's netbook is running Windows Live Mail, and connects to 3 different email accounts. Two are Comcast, the third is her company email server.

The email works fine for most of the locations that she visits. But at one office she visits occasionally, none of these incoming mail servers can be contacted, and she gets a message that says the POP3 server cannot be contacted.

I've encountered problems with the outgoing server when travelling, but never with the incoming. She is not in a position where should could ask an IT person at that location if there is some unusual setting on their network, and even if she could, she would most likely not understand the answer.

So I am trying to find out if anyone here has heard of any configuration changes that they might have done at that site, or any suggestions what to try on her netbook.


A:Cannot connect to incoming server

I assume she is visiting these offices with the same laptop so the only difference is the method of internet access provided by the office. The office router has a firewall which may be blocking outgoing requests to certain email ports that her account settings need to reach. The email provider for the accounts she want to reach can tell you what your pop3 settings must be and whether you have a choice of ports (e.g. level of security). If there are no choices other than what the router won't allow, she could use an alternate method of internet acces such as subscribing to a Sprint, Verizon, or AT&T wireless data service using an external modem that they can provide, or possibly add "tethering" service to her cell phone plan.
