Can't connect through RDP? - Page 2

This has been confirmed. Sorry for the delay. I am running back and forth from computer to computer.

I can successfully ping from my computer to my fathers (192.168.1.3).

My computer recognizes that my fathers computer is part of the network. As I mentioned before, I could (and can still) see his computer listed in the Network directory and can click it, type in the username and password, and view his desktop. Unfortunately this does not solve my issue of using the program I installed, hence why I am trying to set up RDP. It also doesn't inform me as to why I can't connect through RDP. I must admit that I am very confused here.

I can ping him, I can connect to him through the Network directory, and people can connect to me perfectly fine.

I can't even get the point in RDP where it asks for a username and password. As I said before, it just says I can't connect (basically).

One last thought, he could run a netstat -a -n on the target machine and see if RDP port 3389 is even listening.
Thanks for the help, by the way everyone.

I'm not quite sure how to utilize Netstat. Do I run it on his computer or mine? Do I run -a and -n at the same time or separately?

Yeah just go to a command prompt and type netstat -a -n, which will show you all of the TCP/UDP ports in/out of the machine.

The one you want to verify will look like this:



EDIT: If that is there (on his machine), then that means that RDP is listening for incoming connections. If it is not there, then you need to double-check his RDP settings.

Did you try disabling windows firewall and antivirus?

Windows Firewall is disabled on both PCs.

As for the Netstat discovery, I didn't see that port on either computer, which still to me doesn't explain how he can connect to me and I can't to him. Both computers, iirc, showed different but similar ports and data.

Yeah that actually makes no sense. That port is the default RDP listening port, so you should definitely see it (at least on your computer). Maybe type this on the two machines:

netstat -a -n > c:\emp\\output.txt

(Assuming you have a c:\emp folder). Then send me the two files (I'll PM my e-mail addy to you). I might be able to at least confirm whether RDP is behaving default that way.

Joe and everyone, thanks for your help so far. Still no solution.

I have e-mailed you documents from Netstats on both PCs. Hopefully you can get this working. The logic is just nonexistent.

Thanks. Unfortunately I'm a bit stumped at this point. The fact that TCP 3389 is not on your father's machine doesn't surprise me (since it's not working), but I cannot believe it is not on yours.

Unless you manually changed listening ports (which I'm sure you would have mentioned), this defies logic. Either that, or something has changed with RDP lately that I'm not aware of.

Couple of questions:

1. Is it definitely working on your machine right now? That is, without changing configuration re-test that you can connect from father's machine to yours.

2. On either or both machines, how do you have this dialog configured?



Thanks.
-Joe

Hi Joe,

Yes, it works again. I disable Windows Firewall whenever I am not allowing connections to my computer, though it is enabled on my Dad's computer - just mentioning this for now as it may have something to do with the Netstat numbers?

The screen you displayed, when I can get a connection to my computer, I have the top box checked off as well as the middle box on the bottom. I figured it would make it easier - obviously doesn't work when I try to connect to his.

Did you maybe have your remote desktop turned off when collecting the netstat results on your machine? That would explain the missing 3389 perplexity, at least on your box.

For current testing, just double check that firewall and antivirus are disabled on your father's machine, and obviously that RDP is turned on.

Here's the weird part. If either the middle or bottom radio button is selected on this dialog, then port 3389 should be listening and visible with netstat. Since it's not in the two files that you sent me, something is definitely wrong.

The next thing to check are the services running on your father's machine. There are several that apply, but let's start with those that I have circled below:
