Remote Desktop

By pentrex ·
I set SOHO in our building : Lyncsis router, a printer and four PCs. I established the Remote Desktop connection with one of computers located in the other end of our building. Everything was fine. But when I tried to connect the Remote Desktop to my computer in my office from that remote one, I failed to do that.

I checked all settings on both PCs Firewalls, settings in the router's Firewall, checked both accounts have permissions to operate the Remote Desktop, but no matter what I tried I still cannot get the Remote Desktop connection from that computer. It works only in one direction. I use dynamic IP addressing in the router and double checked the addresses on both PCs.

Anyone can explain what's going on?

will check that

by pentrex In reply to Network Authentication

That exactly what I have - XP sp3 .net3.5 sp1, and .net3.0 sp2 installed on both computers.

I 'll check what you said.

What exactly do I need to remove? .net3.5 or sp3?

Just the dotnet 3.5 version.

No, don't roll back sp3.

Backup and Try the Simple First

by rkuhn In reply to Remote Desktop

Can you ping #1 from #2?

Are you using the IP or computer name in RDC?

Can you do a nslookup successfully? Tracert?

Don't skip the may find something obvious like a misconfiguration at the router/switch level.

I use IP in RDC

Yes, I can ping from #1 to #2 and vice versa.

There is no problems with tracert either from both ends.

Nslookup gives the following output:

***Can't find server name for address Non-existent domain
***Can't find server name for address Non-existent domain
***Default servers are not available
Server: Unknown
Address: 192168.1.1
***Unknown can't find Non-existent domain

It's the same output from both ends except the last line where address of the second PC is

Is this looks like an error?

I checked the 3389 port by using the Remote Assistance. Works fine from both ends.

Isn't this enough?

Say you have ip configured to static ex. mask gw for pc1 and mask gw for pc2
