Solved Cannot connect to RDC using WinXP SP3 Tags: Configuration Connection Windows XP Last response: April 22, 2010 12:09 PM in Windows XP Share paulg103 April 12, 2010 5:42:21 PM All, I cannot connect to a Win XP SP3 PC from my Win XP SP3 PC. The PC I am trying to connect to is a new build, XP SP3, with Windows firewall disabled. IP Addresses are static and both are on the same network with the same masks and gateway. Wins and DNS on each are identical on each as well. I can ping by IP and by name from client to host and host to client. Both PCs are part of the same domain. I have added Domain Admins (of which I am a member) as users to the Remote Desktop group on the newly built PC. Others in the department cannot connect to this PC either. But each of us can connect to other PCs in the domain using RDC. We always use RDC and have never come across this issue. Thank goodness for DameWare. RDC is a necessary part of this rollout, so this issue will have to be resolved. Any ideas short if rebuilding, *again*?
