Windows Vista RTM (6.0.6000) Remote Desktop broken? Tags: Remote Desktop Internet Service Providers Windows Vista Last response: November 26, 2006 11:54 PM in Windows Vista Share darkstar782 November 19, 2006 4:19:13 PM Build 6000 is the first one I have tried, so not sure if this was in earlier versions.... I have two networks on my computer. One is an internal network in the 10.x.x.x range, one is an external network with an public static IP. (I have a /29 block from my ISP). Windows firewall is disabled, the Vista PC is set to accept connections from any version of Remote Desktop. Port forwarding and NAT is not an issue as I dont use either. No matter if I try to connect from a Vista PC on the 10.x.x.x side or an XP PC from the internet side, I get a "could not connect to the remote computer error". Like I say, I know port forwarding is not an issue as I have a block of 8 IPs from my ISP and one of these is mapped to the computer. Anybody gotten this to work?

There are no port forwarding issues. I have also stated that I have also tried via the other network connection on the computer in the 10.x.x.x range. There are no firewalls in place on either connection. RDP works fine if the server runs WinXP (it is set to dual-boot) so the ports must be being forwarded fine and RDP isnt being blocked. The Router is a Cisco 837. The NICs used in the server are the standard Marvell Yukon PCIe GbE adaptors on the P5W DH mobo. The Server has full Internet and LAN connectivity, file and printer sharing etc all work fine. Without remote desktop, I'm back to using WinXP for now BassThatHz November 26, 2006 11:54:45 PM Under the advanced tab, set authentication to "always connect"... this worked for me in Vista to XP connections. XP to Vista also works great on my system. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources: ForumSilent Gaming Challange! ForumMake Win 7 look/act like 2k/XP? ForumSave XP!
