Unable to remote desktop to my server

By rohanverma ·
Hello,

I am trying to connect to my home server (Windows Server 2003) from my home laptop. Both are on my home network using a Linksys WRT54G router. A few days back we had power outage and on restarting the server I got "IP conflict" error. Since than I have not been able to remote desktop into my server from my home laptop and work laptop.

Both server and laptop are connected to the internet. I have checked the firewall, port 3389 is open for server ip but still no luck. Please see below my ipconfig/all data, can anyone help me locate the problem?

I am not very tech savvy thus asking for help.

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>ipconfig/all

"IP conflict" means that more than one host is assigned the same IP.

by seanferd In reply to Unable to remote desktop ...

Rather straightforward, and nothing to do with any of the investigation and information noted so far. Make sure none of your devices is sharing the same LAN IP address.

P.S., that DNS suffix will probably cause other problems in the future. I'd get rid of it.

Anything further? Please post your questions in Q&A.
