Hi all,

I'm having a strange problem using Remote Desktop Connection on an XP
Pro machine. The host computer is on Verizon DSL with a linksys
router and ZoneAlarm running.

I can connect to the machine and use it without problems from my
office, and also when dialed into an isp from a hotel.

However, when I try to connect via my Moms computer or my Aunts
computer (both running XP pro on Comcast from two different houses), I
get the login prompt, am able to login and I can see the desktop load.
However, at this point it locks up - ie, any keypresses or mouse
clicks result in just a 'beep' and the click is never registered on
the host machine.

I figure it must be something with the comcast network, but I can't
imaging what the problem may be that it allows a connection, a login,
but no interaction once logged in?!?

Any help?

ThX!

There is a fix 811080 that is not exactly your problem. Possibly it is
another manifestation of the same issue? Sorry I can't be of more help.
