Remote desktop from an XP Pro computer to a Vista Business PC.

By spooner97 ·
I could use a little help. I'm have a Vista Business PC that I am able to remote to without a problem from other XP computers. But for some reason I have one PC that's running XP Pro that cannot remote to it. I verified the IP settings, and I can ping the Vista PC from the XP pro computer. I installed the Remote Desktop Terminal service pack 6.0 but still could not connect. Has anyone else had a similar problem?

Firewall settings?

on the XP pro machine? Second guess, anti-virus, anti-spyware, anti-malware program blocking RDP port.
