Is it possible to find out the IP address of a PC connecting via Remote Desktop Connection.Running XP Pro on a network,I have admin rights to the PC's, but no direct access to the servers.Event viewer shows some details, but no IP address.
On wireless (lenovo tabletx61) I cannot connect through the intranet - no problem connecting through internet. When I manage to connect through intranet connection is dropped quite often.No problem connecting via Ethernet cables.
To use Remote Desktop Connection, is it really this easy:Open up remote desktop connection on your Host PC --- type the IP of the computer you want to access, then click connect --- As long as "Allow Remote Desktop" is enabled on the PC you are trying to connect to, your attempt will be successful
I opened a computer in other network via remote desktop(because I forwarded port in router)....and tried to access other computers in the network via remote desktop again from that computer but after I done, I don't know how to close the secondary remote desktop. There was one close button on the top, but if "close" it, whole rdp connection was closed. The secondary rdp connection is still open in the computer.
I am having trouble connecting to my home computer from my work computer via the Windows Remote Desktop Connection app.On my home computer (win 7 pro) I have:
1. Allowed incoming remote desktop connections
2. Verified that the firewall is open for RDC
3. Forwarded port 3389 on my router to my devices static IP
4.Verified that I am using the correct IP (Router has a dynamic IP but I called home and had my wife read the current IP # from whatismyip.com)
5. Setup an account on the home computer that is password protected
I am connecting from a win XP pro computer.I receive 0% packet loss with reasonable time delay when pinging my home IP from the work computer.I also asked a family member to try from a different location (using Vista Ultimate) with the same result Error is that connection is never established and I am never prompted to logon to the home computer.I can connect via RDC when on the home network.
I have a problem connecting to VPS with Windows XP Remote Desktop Connection.The error I'm getting is:"Remote Desktop Disconnected - The remote connection has timed out. Please try connecting to the remote computer again."I am not behind any network, firewall, router...I tried to turn off firewall and antivirus programs to see if they are blocking it. It didn't work.I could find from Microsoft support site refer to the server side configuration. But I know problem isn't with server, because I am able to connect from another PC (notebook running windows 7 with wireless connection). It is working straightforward with default settings.Are there any settings that need to be changed in Windows XP for RDC to work?
I am running a virtual machine with 6 GB of ram with OS Windows 7 64 bit.I turned on remote desktop connection made sure firewall is off and even enabled ISS.But I cant connect to it from my main PC or any other PC.Is it because I have the same IP on the VM? Because I want to sell these VM's as dedicated servers but it wont work.
A user is trying to remote to her desktop with a small Dell Latitude netbook through remote desktop connection via a work VPN. Both her laptop and her desktop have working sound; however, when connected to her desktop through her laptop, no sound can be heard. It says there there are no audio devices detected. Obviously the drivers are installed on the desktop.

I want to connect via windows rdp to computer outside the company office and I cannot do that since we have webwasher or proxy installed in the office.I can access this machine with IE (it is a server with open port 80) and I see its website. This is becuase the IE at office has proxy configured correctly.I cannot access the same machine with RDP connection, though. I can access it using other computer outsite the office, so it is not an issue that rdp is not enabled or so. Problem is with proxy at office.I need a way to connect to rdp by using the same proxy.Problem is that that IE at office uses automated proxy script (.pac).I have installed remote utilities server on the machine I want to access and the remote utilities viewer on the computer at office. I set the proxy similary to what is set in IE but I cannot connect anyway. I can connect this way from third computer outside the office though, so the configuration is fine, only proxy is the problem.I managed to get the proxy details like host name and port but I'm not sure those are the right one.The webwasher or proxy is mcafee web gateway 6.8.4.
I have a question on a VPN connection. I have a remote access VPN setup on an ASA 5505 to be able to remote into a location and check the HVAC program running on a PC. The remote connection connects fine, but when I use remote desktop to connect to the PC, it connects quick, but the screen redraw and reaction time is extremely slow. EG: I click on the program and it takes about 20 seconds to draw the screen, or I click on a menu bar and get the same times for reactions. Could this be a ISP Up/Download issue or is there something that I need to look at on the ASA to change?
If I connect to the remote and do a PING from my desktop to the remote Desktop, these are the results that I get:

I have ASA 5515x and it has already Internet Connection since my firewall is not "production". So right now I'm trying to configure a Remote Session just for a test and eventually I was not able to connect from it. I followed the instructions from technotes but still Remote Connection dropped. Here's my sample configuration on my firewall, btw I also configured a service policy rule and ACL just to make sure if I can able to access the Server inside my network but Session also dropped.
i want to setup a remote desktop connection for 3 computers on the same network to connect to remotely. Originally i was going to port forward the original windows RDP port and run the windows rdp service but learnt that XP Home Edition doesn't support this feature. I want to be able to log onto these computers at any time remotely with the need of accessing the computer before i connect.
I have a CISCO Linksys WRT610N router on my home network which consists of the following 4 computers; Windows Small Business Server 2003, one Windows 7 Ultimate and two Windows XP Professional. How to configure a VPN on the WRT610N router that would allow me to access all of the computers on my home network over the Internet using the "Remote Desktop Connection" component.
I have one desktop PC at home, Windows XP, and have a Time Warner wired modem for internet. I work from home and connect to my office computer through Remote Desktop Connection.I purchased a Roku2 video streaming player and bought a Belkin N150 wireless router in order to get the signal from my desktop computer out to the living area where the Roku is located. The connection with the Roku is perfect. However, my remote desktop connection now disconnects constantly and internet browsing on the local computer is very slow and choppy.The configuration I used is 1) Belkin ethernet wire from Belkin to back of modem 2) modem ethernet wire from Belkin to computer.If I remove the Belkin and put everything back the way it was, all is fine ... but, of course, we then have no Roku.

I recently bought this modem for use at home. When I try to log in to my computer at work I am able to log in to the server via a VPN connection but not onto individual computers via Remote Desktop Connection. Both computers run windows 7.
I have recently upgraded my router to a Belkin N750 DB and am having issues getting remote desktop connection working. Previously I had a Netgear router and it was working no problems at all.I have port forwarded (virtual server on Belkin) port 3389 TCP to the servers IP address.I can get Remote desktop connection to work when I am within my LAN by just typing the computers name.However when I try to connect via the IP address, as I would if I were away from home, then I get the message that says "remote desktop cannot connect for one of these reasons
1) remote access not enabled (it is because it worked before) 2) remote computer is turned off (no it isn't) 3) remote computer is no available" (yes it is cause can connect from LAN)
Turned off static IP for my server and let the router assign IP, and changed the IP address in the port forward, same, no connection.Double, triple checked my IP address, as this obviously changed when I plugged in the new router.Have updated to latest firmware for router and NIC.
I've got a machine on my home network running Windows Server 2012 (Based on Win8).The problem is, my taskbar disappears completely.When I minimize an application rather than minimize to the taskbar it simply closes the window as small as it can as if the taskbar never existed (see photos at bottom).
The problem first presented itself after I accessed the computer from outside my local network I'm using a Linksys router and mapping to the server IP, port 3389.After a restart the problem goes away, I will update when I have more information on how frequently or what may trigger.
I just picked up the E4200 to replace a router, I can remote desktop into a computer that is physically connected to this router, but cannot remote desktop into other computers on the network that are connected via another switch.
Have just been trying to install Remote Desktop between two XP pro laptops When I try to log on I get a black screen with the connection bar at the top with the name of the remote computer and after about thirty seconds it drops the connection. The remote laptop comes up with logon screen but it isn't visible on the on host machine.I have followed all the instructions including file sharing enabled remote accesss etc, Both machines show up on network map and can ping each other.
We have a server which in addition to other services is used to stream live hi-def video from our building during special events.We use a software video/audio production mixer which works very well. But we now would like to make a change in the system.Is it possible/practical to use Remote Desktop via the second - as yet unused - LAN in our server. We really would like to put the operators in a different location where they have both video and in-person view of the event being streamed. But we don't want to use more bandwidth on the LAN...the production mixer handles a *lot* of uncompressed video and tends to be a bandwidth hog.
