Hi Al,

I get the following error message:

"The client could not connect to the remote computer.
Remote connections might not be enabled or the computer might be too
busy
to accept new connections. It is also possible that network problems
are
preventing your connection. Please try connecting again later. If
the problems continues to occur, contact your administrator."

I hope this helps,

Jim

So what error message, if any, do you get when you try to connect?

Are you positive your calling the correct IP of the RDP host?

Hello,

I'm having a problem connecting to a host PC through a dialup
connection. The firewall settings are set right on all PCs.
The client PC has had a problem connecting to Kaazaa Lite also.
The client is running Norton internet security. Both PCs are
running WinXP Pro SP2.

Any advice would be appreaciated.


Thanks,

Jim

The PC your trying to connect to using RDP is it behind a firewall/NAT/router or directly connected
to the public internet? If its on a private LAN can you access over the LAN from another PC on the
same LAN? If its behind a firewall/NAT/router is TCP Port 3389 open to the private LAN IP of the PC?
Are you calling the correct public IP of the firewall/NAT/router or PC?

This page has a few troubleshooting tips that may be of interest....including a telnet test from a
remote PC to check on port forwarding...
