    Can you connect to this computer via Remote Desktop while on the LAN?

    I am having the same problem. I used to be able to connect from within a LAN
    but now it doesn't. I tried typing the IP address and port number of my
    computer into the browser of the computer i want to control (its easier and
    its just to test the connection) and it used to this computer is already
    being controlled (since you are on it), but now it is saying its busy or
    theres a network problem. Any ideas?
