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

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

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.

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.)

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

I have a home network set up, with my primary computer being a WinXP Pro machine. I used to have a Win95 and a Win98 machine hooked up in the network as well. I was previously able to remote desktop into my WinXP machine without an issue. I am using the Windows remote desktop feature, but I'm using a non-standard port, with the port open on my router, and my WinXP machine. Last week, I replaced the Win98 machine with a Win2k machine, and I am now not able to remote desktop into my XP machine. Is there something I need to do on the 2k machine? Could it be blocking remote access to my XP machine somehow?

Helloo I'm having a problem with connecting my Windows 7 laptop to my Windows XP Pro machine. I have my router at home (where the XP machine is) port forwarded for Remote Desktop, I set up the XP machine completely for connecting to by allowing exceptions for the Remote Desktop.

When on my Win 7 machine I type in the IP address and port and it gets me to the log in screen where it gives me the username (Matt) and I enter my credentials (password). After entering it and clicking OK it brings me back to the log in screen. Over and Over. Does anyone have an idea of what I may have done wrong? I can post a link of the site I used to set it up.

Thanks!

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!

Thanks!

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.

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.

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

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.

Meanwhile, you can try the following:
Check the MachineKeys directory.

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.

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.

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?

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.

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 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)"

I can successfully ping either way.
Both computers are connected to the same network, but there are no workgroups.
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 am trying to set up a remote login with my two laptops, w-PC, and w2-PC.

Firewalls are turned off. The box for the remote coonection is enabled and checked. When I try to connect to w2-PC from w-PC, I get this error message every single time.

Remote Desktop can't connect to the remote computer for one of these reasons:Remote access to the server is not enabled
The remote computer is turned off
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 been trying to figure this out for an hour and cannot get it to work. I have the firewall turned off on both computers.

Hi I have a laptop at home running Vista Home Premium & have a vpn along with RDP set up to log into our work network & remote is onto a PC running XP Pro.

My VPN gets me into the work's network however I now cannot connect the remote desktop anymore, this has been set up for over a year & no issues, now will not connect at all.

The error I get is: Remote Desktop Disconnected This computer cannot connect to the remote computer. Try connecting again. If the problem persists contact owner of remote computer or your network administrator.

ok so I have tried to ping the static IP address of the remote computer & it times out & states 100% packet loss.

I was also in the office yesterday & checked that the RDP was accepting incoming connections & I have made sure that it is do not use a terminal gateway server is checked in the advanced tab.

I have password & user name on the PC & have checked that it still has a static IP address assigned. I also have the full name of the computer inserted?

Any other troubleshooting ideas? I've been all over the net & tried most of the offered solutions?

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 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.....??

Thank you for any help you can offer!

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".

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??

Try disabling the wired nic and see if it works. It may be remote desktop is trying to use the old connection.

Odd. I use No-ip, and have a registered host name that I have used in the past to connect to my Windows 8.1 system
Since a clean install of Windows 10, I no longer can connect using the MS remote desktop app on my mac to my pc. I have allowed remote connections, and the port 3389 TCP is forwarded on my router per http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/w...r-home-network

I have a static IP on my pc, and the static ip on my router points to that forward port. I also disabled windows firewall. Anyone else having issues with remote desktop connections?

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?

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 was wondering if anyone could help me. I had been running remote desktop from this PC before into my PC at uni and it was working fine. Now however now it comes up saying
"The specified remote compuetr could not be found. Verify that you have typed the correct computer name or IP address, and then try connecting again."
I have checked these and they are what they should be. I am also VPN ing into the Uni network without a problem. I know the connection works as it works fine, over my wireless connection at home, from my laptop.


Any ideas as this is very frustrating.

Thanks

Perhaps someone here has an idea - please read the problem description.
I just took over doing the IT work for a local hotel.  This hotel changed ownership and affiliation.  On the day of the change over the OLD management company deactivated and deleted all the Administrator accounts on the server and all desktop
computers.  They deleted the domain controller as well.  So we had to reinstall Windows 7 Professional on 7 of 8 desktop computers.  ONE computer had never joined the domain and we were able to log into it.
So we reinstalled Windows on these 7 computers.  There is no domain controller as there is no server.  Everything is done using the cloud or via Remote Desktop Connections - this is the problem.
On the 7 reinstalled computers when we try to remote into their Quickbooks server the connection fails because the credentials are wrong.  HOWEVER when we use the one computer that we did not reinstall windows the Remote Desktop Connection works using
the same credentials that fail on any of the other computers - they are all on the same network and near as I can tell everything else is the same. 

I have made certain that every setting concerning RDP matches - yet the credentials still fail on the 7 new installations.  I even tried creating new accounts on the remote server.  The new account works on the one computer but fails on the other
7.
I can not figure out what is different but my guess is somethin... Read more
