Remote desktop stoped working on XP Home (I did have it working)

Q: Remote desktop stoped working on XP Home (I did have it working)

I followed these instructions to get it working :
http://www.mydigitallife.info/2008/...le-remote-desktop-in-windows-xp-home-edition/
http://www.mydigitallife.info/2008/...esktop-connections-or-sessions-in-windows-xp/

And a couple of months after I got it working it just stopped working all of a sudden, and the "terminal services" disappeared out of the services manager, and I tried to reinstall in twice and it still will not show up, I don't know what to do besides reformat.

I have windows Xp Home SP2 (I didn't upgrade past that because it works and works better than last time I had sp3, So I'm just going to leave it for now.

Preferred Solution: Remote desktop stoped working on XP Home (I did have it working)

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.)

Use ultraVNC server and viewer. Works much better and less of a lag on system. I also think you need netframework.

Hey guys

I have been trying to use remote desktop just within my home to help my wife with her hourly tech problems. Everytime I try to connect to her laptop I get an error "No terminal server installed". I swear I have used it at home before connecting to a buddies laptop. Is there a service I have to make sure is running on her laptop?

Here's the setup:
Our server is running Win 2012 R2
Computer I'm trying to remote into is running Win 8 Pro
Computer I'm using for remote connection is Win 7 Home
Note that on a Mac I can connect into the Win 8 computer with no issues.

Here's the problem--- I open up remote desktop connection, put in the IP address and the user name as ourdomain\username
It connects and brings up the login screen, I again type ourdomain\username and the password
It says connecting and logs me into the computer
HOWEVER, it is actually logging in as the local user account--- [email protected]

I've tried various alternatives of this same basic process and am yielding the same results. I'm about to pull out my hair as clearly it will state logging in as ourdomain\user but then it doesn't! 
Also once it does login to the computer I cannot figure out a way to switch user accounts.
I've done the typical thing and tried googling this issue and searching these forums but I cannot find a solution. Actually, I can't even find someone with this problem.

I don't think we've attempted to use this particular laptop (win 7 home) since we changed this user over to a Win 8 pro pc so I don't believe it has ever worked. 
Could someone please help?!

I have XP professional and have been using the desktop remote to remote in to my work computer for about six months from my home laptop. No problem. Worked fine. We are networked at work. I can use any printer in my building.

Last week for some unknown reason, I could not print to our "big copier" at work. I called our tech guy and he said somehow the IP address on the copier changed and we would have to change the IP address on our computer to match. Well, sometime that same week I tried to connect to my work computer from home and had an error message - the client could not establish a connection to the remote computer - the most likely causes for this error are: 1) remote connections might not be enabled at the remote computer; 2) the maximum connections at the remote computer are exceeded; 3) a network error occured. I check the IP addresses for my work computer and made sure it had not changed......it hadn't.

I can use any other computer (like my mother's) and it remotes fine. I took my laptop to work and tried it, it worked fine. Used my daughter's laptop at home and it would not remote - same error. It seems it has something to do with my internet connection at home, but I am not sure. Any help would be appreciated. Our tech guy is dumbfounded!

Hi all,

So, I have scoured every resource I could find to resolve this, and am just flat out stumped....hoping someone here can shed some light on my problem. Here is my situation:

* I have a SBS 2003 R2 Standard machine running (domain controller, exchange, etc)
* I have 7 XP SP2 clients that are part of the domain
* I have an ASA 5505 firewall running, with an ADSL modem connected to that for WAN access

My problem is related to RWW. From the internet (non-lan connection), I can connect without any issues to the RWW homepage (either as a domain user or an administrator). When I click on "connect to work computer", I am presented with a list of the domain PCs. However, once I click on any of them, I receive the following "VB Script: Remote Desktop Disconnected" error window:

"The client could not establish a connection to the remote computer. The most likely causes for this error are:

1) Remote connections might not be established at the remote computer
2) The max number of connections might be exceded at the remote computer
3) A network error might have occurred while establishing the connection
4) The Remote Web Workplace designated port might be blocked by a firewall
"

Here is what I have confirmed so far:
1) I have opened ports 3389 and 4125 on the ASA

Remote Desktop keeps saying "can't connect...".

Both the client and server use Windows 7.

- I have enabled Remote Desktop on the server. When I connect using the local IP address, i.e. 192.168.1.123, it connects fine.

- I have also set up port forwarding in my router to forward port 3389 to that local IP address. I already checked on canyouseeme.org and it says "Success: I can see your service on 222.252.233.9 on port (3389)"

However, if I enter 222.252.233.9 to remote desktop, it can't connect to the server.

Do you know how to fix this problem?

My host machine has stopped responding when I try to log into it.
Win 7 Pro, 64 bit, latest service pack.
The only different thing I've done is changes the listening port to 9833, but that has been working for years
I recently added bullguard security instead of Norton but I think it was working for a few days before this issue started. I've tried turning off the firewall altogether and that hasn't made a difference.
Typically when remote desktop stops responding, I reboot the machine and everything is good, but I've done that 4 times now with shut downs, not just restarts.
I have confirmed under computer properties that Remote desktop is activated.
Please help
**********************
I've been digging further and it seems as though window firewall was back in play along with bullguard and that was blocking it.  I turned off windows firewall and turned back on bullguard and was able to log in.
sooo...
1- if I have the bullguard firewall running do I need the windows firewall?
2- If I should have the windows firewall running too, how do I change the port in windows firewall?  While remote desktop is listening fine on 9983, windows firewall is showing the original 3389 as the port.  I have to machines here that I get
into and use the ports to determine which machine I am accessing.

Hi there,

Can anyone give me some simply instructions on how to configure remote desktop? I've looked all over the internet and can't seem to figure it out. I want to remote control my home computer from work. Windows Ultimate 7 on both computers.

I've configured the home PC in some ways... mostly going all the things the internet tells me to do... clicking various check marks and so on. I guess to log in I need to know what the ip address is... i found ipconfig but I'm not exactly sure which of the numbers is my IP address. Also, in user name, what do I type? I have my home PC set up... I am an administrator... to log in to my home PC I use my name as the user name with a password.

I'm using it over a router. The IP address I have is for the router I guess, not specifically the computer. So somehow I need to figure out how to get into the computer and not just the router etc. Do I need to think about ports?

I am aware of options such as team viewer and log me in. I"m specifically interested in remote desktop so I can get working audio.

This should be very easy. I'm just not quite knowledgable enough.

A:help getting remote desktop working

Yes you need to know the IP address of the comptuer to pointto the computer

then you need to configure the router to port forward to a static ip to the computr to want to tap into



What i did so hat I never have to remember a number that could change at anytime... i configured my router to accept the dyndns.com soo that i have a domain resolve my ip address.

so instead of putting in changing IPs, i just put in a domain like ****.homeip.net

I can transfer files, share directories, and do everything but remote desktop. It keeps telling me the credentials don't match.

I have the same username/password on both machines, both are running Windows 7 Ultimate, both are configured to use the same homegroup and both machines are working perfectly EXCEPT for remote desktop.

When I try to add a user in the Select User dialog I can only see user-A on machine-A, and user-B on machine-B. machine-A does not see user-B and machine-B does not see user-A, so I cannot possibly add myself as a user to RDP in the MMC settings.

I have followed all other "Windows 7 Homegroup Remote Desktop not working" threads and followed all guides to correcting this problem. Nothing works, and my credentials are still rejected.

What can I do to further gather support for this cripplingly frustrating issue?

EDIT: Any and all suggestions that do not result in RDP working over a network will be immediately rejected.

With that kind of comment in your post, you will probably not get much help. also I don't understand
how RDP could work on any medium except a network as it requires an IP or Name to be able to communicate.

my question is that i was told that it might be becasue on both computers i have are setup with a linksys router and thats why it is not working because it would have a problem with the IP since i dont have a static IP.

Can anyone confirm if this is true?

Nothing seems to work.
The problem exists in both ways: laptop can't connect to PC, PC can't connect to laptop.

A:Remote desktop is not working

I assume by saying your remote desktop is not working means you cannot remotely control another PC on your network as you used to be able to do, or has this never worked ? By having systems in a workgroup and sharing files with each other is not the same as being able to take control of another system's desktop - you have to set this up and is not the default condition of windows.

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."

I have recently set up a desktop computer at a new office to allow remote desktop. I had my laptop with me and after working thru a few things, it worked (from my laptop to connect to the desktop when I was there working online off the same router). It is a very simple set up there with only 4 computers and a netgear wireless router. I was on the same network at the time..

Now I am home with the same laptop and it is not working --- "THe client could not connect to the remote computer..." I am using the Windows REmote Desktop.

I am wondering if it has to do with the IP address that I am using...since I am attempting to use the same one that worked at the office - the IP of the speciifc computer behind the router...I don't know much about how IPs work. I remember reading something somewhere about how you have to use a different IP that the router at the office is generating.....??

Network and sharing allows the computers to see each other.
I've tried using the computer name and the LAN: neither worked.
I'm on Windows 7 Home Premium on both computers.
It doesn't work with the firewall off either.

Anybody know what I can't get this to work?

I have a customer whose workstation was just upgraded to Windows 7 pro 64 bit. The PC is part of a SBS 2011 domain. I cannot connect to it via RDC from another PC on the network. I have checked that RDC is allowed through the firewall. Turned off and unloaded the Trend Micro Worry Free Business Security, no help. I enabled "fDenyTSConnections" in the registry. "Allow connections from computers running any version of Remote Desktop" is selected although changing this is greyed out presumably due to an SBS 2011 policy. What am I missing?

Hi,

I have 2 computers, one running XP and one NT, both connected to broadband internet and I can run remote desktop to connect them via the internet (I use the NT machine to access the XP machine).

However, when I put the XP machine on 802.11b wireless (it is a laptop), i can no longer connect to it via the NT using remote desktop...

Any suggestions??

Hello Guys,

I have a Windows 8 laptop. Windows 8 came pre-installed means it is Windows 8 Core/ OEM version, if that matters.

my other two laptops are Windows 7 laptop and Macbook Pro plus android handset.

sometimes all the three laptops are ON and operational and are connected through WiFi.

I have Remote Desktop Sharing enabled in my Windows 7 laptop
I have installed third party RDP server in my Macbook Pro

I tried using both IP and netBIOS name. Ping works just fine in both ways.

Now, One thing is clear. something is wrong in Windows 8 settings or something.
assuming that Remote Support is allowed in here... is there something I am missing in Windows 8 configuration?

what is wrong, why isn't it working?

A:Remote Desktop Not Working in Windows 8

The core version of Windows 8 does not have the Remote Desktop Host which is required in order to accept incoming requests for remote desktop....

The PC that you wish to access remotely needs something called Remote Desktop Host, which is not available in the base, or core, version of Windows 8. This feature requires Windows 8 Pro or Enterprise. (If you are trying to connect to the base version of Windows 8, you will need to upgrade electronically to Windows 8 Pro or seek out a third party remote access solution like VNC. I recommend Windows 8 Pro.)

The PC that you are using to remotely access another PC needs the Remote Desktop Connection (RDC) software,

I've been running a Windows 8.1 desktop at home for just over six months and was happily connecting to my work computer (running Windows XP) via remote desktop w/o incident. Recently we were upgraded to laptops running Windows 7 and I'm now unable to connect with my home desktop. In the process of troubleshooting I tried connecting by using my old Windows XP laptop, works fine. To summarize: Windows 8.1 connecting to Windows XP was fine, Windows XP to Windows 7 works, Windows 8.1 to Windows 7 is not working. Any clue as to what might be going on?

Hi, I'm having a bit of an issue with my home server. First time when it starts up, I'm able to rdp into it just fine. If I log off and then later log on again using rdp it works fine too, however when I log in and close the rdp window, it does not let me connect again, nor can I access any of its resources, eg. shared files, web server, sql server, not even ping it, and I have to do a hard reboot (don't have a screen keyboard or mouse connected to it). It used to work fine before but I've changed isps and now it connects through wireless instead. Any ideas?

Hi,

I just upgraded my router from a b series smc to a D-link Xtreme G.
I am totally happy with the router and it is so much faster, but unfortunately ever since the remote desktop is not working.

Mind you I also reinstalled windows and all the apps.

Here is what I did after I reimaged the hard drive and attached the new router:

0. Enabled remote desktop on the host machine.
1. Forwarded TCP ports: 80 and 3389 on my router to the ip of the machine I would like to use as remote desktop host: (192.168.0.100)
2. Turned off the Windows firewall
3. Added the local ip address of my laptop to the "allowed addresses in Norton Internet Security" (I using the laptop as a Remote Desktop Client)

On remote desktop of the laptop I can enter 192.168.0.100 and it will connect, but when I enter the global ip address it does not find the server.

I can not think of anything else to do concidering it was working smoothly just a few days ago with the same settings on another router (and the old OS)

Please help!

Hi, I am trying to get remote desktop sharing to work on my computer. It works on my LAN but does not work if i try to connect to it from a computer off my LAN, like from work. My computer is on a Linksys router, but it is in the DMZ, so it is not behind the firewall. When I connect from home it works fine, at work it says "the person is unable to accept calls". I am also behind a firewall here at work, but i don't think it matters. Can someone gaiv me any information about this like if they have the soame problem or if they have resolved the problem. Thanks.

I am having trouble using a locally networked printer when I use Remote Desktop to connect to a Vista machine. Under the local resources tab for RD, I have checked printers. The only thing I can figure is that my printer is networked locally, not connected directly to my machine. Every time I try to print during my remote desktop session, I can't access my locally networked printer.

I installed the printer drivers on the remote computer and when I try to locate the printer, I get the following error: "Windows cannot connect to the printer. Server print spooler service is not running..." but the spooler service IS runing.

I also tried to plug in my printer to a local USB port this morning. Still would not work. I keep getting the same spooling error. The drivers are not corrupt, as others have indicated may be the cause. They work fine on my system locally with 7.

I also found a post elsewhere that discussed setting 'share permissions' and 'network permissons' to resovle the spooler error. Still no go.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I've spent a few hours on this one and am at a loss at this point.

Please help. I really need to print locally.

A:Remote Desktop Not Working with Local Printer

You might want to try and enable some of the remote services in the services window. Just type services in the command prompt and hit enter then scroll down to enable them.

I'm not sure which one would effect remote print spooling but changing them from manual to automatic might help.

I was able to connect to my remote office computer which is running Vista 64 Bit using remote desktop until automatic updates were installed. Now I can no longer connect. I can use PC anywhere (but that is not efficient, nor do i like the interface.. VNC same) I have verified that PORT 3389 in the router has not changed, but when i do a port scan on it is is saying that it is unable to connect.

I have tried utilizing another computer on the network (LAN) and that can not connect either.

I have no troubles connecting to my server on the same network so iknow that it is not the router or the laptop..

Any assistance would be helpfull...

thanks.,,,

Easy to resolve, with system restore go back to before the updates.
Now install updates one at a time and test. When you get to the problem, uninstall the update. Then mark to hide so it is not installed again.

I have two laptops an ASUS with windows 7 ultimate and the other with windows 7 home premium. I also have a built desktop with windows server 2008 r2. I have enabled remote connection on the server and can log on with all of the user accounts. But I can not file share when I have remotely connected to the desktop using remote desktop connection. I have enabled printer and clipboard and then went in to more and selected the drive i wanted to share. I then logged on to remote desktop and the drive is not listed in computer management or in my computer. How can I fix this? Is it an issue in the windows server os that I need to do? Thank you for your help in advance!!!!

A:File sharing over remote desktop not working.

remote desktop connections allow you to 'control' a computer remotely--but--does not give you file sharing capabilities. You need to assign volumes on the server as 'shared' and then mount the 'volume(s)' on your laptops

Hi everyone -
I apologize if this has been addressed; I did a search, and couldn't find an answer that worked.

I am attempting to connect two computer via Remote Desktop. Both are running Windows 7 Professional, and they are not on the same network so this is going over the internet.

Although I have all of the appropriate boxes checked in the Remote Desktop's options, I am unable to get my local resources to become available on the remote machine. I cannot see the local drives, access the local printers, or share items with the clipboard.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to get these to work?

Thanks!

Hello, I am having a really odd problem, I use my job's work VPN to connect to their server and from there I remote desktop into my computer at work. Everything works fine with my Windows 8.1 laptop, I connect to the VPN, then am able to access my station via remote desktop. With Windows 10 I am not able to....with an ethernet connection...it works fine when I connect to my wifi here and do it that way. Otherwise I can connect to the VPN but can't connect to my desktop there remotely with Windows 10 (I have two computers that have Windows 10 that i tested this on), it is only happening with an ethernet internet connection.

I am also able to ping the station fine with the wifi connection, but cannot ping it with the ethernet. I've tried deactivating my firewalls with no success. I am really stumped as to what is going on since things work fine with Windows 8.1's ethernet and wifi connection.

Thank you!

Hi all, I've been having some issues with Remote Desktop Connections, and I can't seem to find an answer after googling and looking through previous threads. Hoping to hear everyone's thoughts on what I may be missing out on.

Situation
There are 5 computers within my work place -
Desktop (D), connected via LAN cable
Spare laptop (S), connected to wifi
Laptop 1,2,3 (1,2,3), connected via LAN cable and wifi

I hope to remotely control the desktop unit D from the Spare unit S, but when I try to I encounter the standard error: "Remote Desktop can't connect to the remote computer for one of these reasons". I am able to remotely connect to D using Laptops 1-3, but unfortunately these 3 laptops are often used for other reasons so I would still need to use S most of the time.

Between Laptops 1-3 and S, S seems to be able to remotely connect to laptop 3, but the same error appears for laptops 1 and 2.

Connecting from D to the other units, the standard error appears in each scenario. I find this strange but it's not important; I do not have to remotely control the laptops from my desktop.
When I try to ping the various units, this was what I observed.
S ping to D : timed out
1,2,3 ping to D: 0% lost
S ping to 1: 0% lost
S ping to 2: timed out
S ping to 3: 0% lost

In the other direction,
D ping to 1,3: 0% lostt
D ping to 2: timed out
D ping to S: timed out

Hope the information is relevant. Would appreciate advice on how I may get S to remotely connect with D, or an... Read more
