Remote Desktop Web Connection (connect button)

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.work_remotely (More info?)

Can anyone tell me why when using the web connection of remote desktop, that
the connect button doesn't let you click on it? I tried it from 2 computers
and it seems to be dimmed out or just doesn't allow me to click on it after i
put in the server name.

    I would guess that you do not have remote desktop enabled on your computer
    goto Help and Support then Working Remotely then Remote Desktop (on the left
    pane) you will find all the info you need to set this up there.

    remotely/remote desktop it has all the info you need to set this up.

    If the Connect button is not functional, and your browser does not
    automatically install the required ActiveX control, the control may be
    downloaded from here.
