Remote Desktop

By heyyu1 ·
I have set up a remote desktop between 2 computers on the same network. Both computers are connected to the same router. I have assigned one computer as port 80 ( default port) and the other 1474. I understand that the default remote desktop connection is 3389. I have one computer on the port 3389, and changed the other computer port in the Regit to 3390. I have also linked each computers IP address to the selected ports ,, for 3389, and for the 3390 port in my router settings. I try to open my 2 computers for the office, I can only open the computer using my remote desktop using port 3389, my other computer using port 3390, I get an error after I connect to the remote connection, Error Message Computer or server to busy... try to access it later. How can I get access to more than one computer using Remote Desktop on the same network, at another location? I can access the computers using the remote desktop internally, but externally, how can i set it up so i can access more than one computer sharing the same network or on the same router.

Thank you

Try this...
When you connect externally enter the address as such...

external IP:3390

If you can setup Portmapping on your router (depends on the router) use that.

Recently a collegue told me that this problem is with xpsp2 not present.

With sp1 i copied mstsc.exe and mstscax.dll to a different folder and changed compatibility mode (right click -> properties) to w98 or nt4. That solved it (and also the issue that no connect to was possible).

Hope this helps..
