I have been trying to get Remote Desktop to work for a while now. I have followed many tutorials and experimented with other things, but the end result is still the same. System Background: The host computer has winxp pro and is my personal computer. This computer has been properly setup in the "System Properties" / "Remote" tab as per all tutorials I have seen. The client computer has winxp home and is my other computer. Both computers are connected to the internet via a LAN connection. The LAN connection is split by a Hub then travels to either computer. I have set both computers to run on the same workgroup, aptly named WORKGROUP. I do have a stand alone anti virus/firewall program, I disabled it entirely but still had the same issue. Error Messages On the client, I load up Remote Desktop from the All Programs list and enter the host IP Address, then press connect. After waiting for it to think for a bit a get this message: Remote Computer Disconnected This computer can't connect to the remote computer. Try connecting again. If problem continues, contact the owner of the remote computer or your network administrator. Now if I click on the Computer selection arrow on the Remote Desktop Connection window and select <Browse for more...> I will be able to see a computer with a workgroup name attached to it. But if I try to select it I get another error message: Remote Desktop Connection The WORKGROUP domain/workgroup does not contain any Terminal servers. So, do I actually need to establish a recognized network between these two computers before I can do this? Is the internet not good enough? Am I an ***** and cannot see the simple answer? I know one thing for sure, I getting quite irritated.
