Remote Desktop Connection Not Connecting

In the built-in Remote Desktop Connection Software in Windows XP Professional, I used to be able to connect to remote computers on my LAN.  There is one computer that I mainly connected to.  It is my Dell Dimension 2400.  I have a slow laptop that I use as a window to use my Dell.  It would connect fine before but now it wont.  When it is trying to connect, the close button turns to a cancel button.  Then, after about one second, the button switches back to a Close button with the password field cleared.  It acts like when you get an error message, except there is no error message.  Help please!  I have searched on two other forums and still can't find an answer!  Thanks!

    I looked but the IP Address did not change on either computers. I tried re-entering the info but to no avail. I know that it is not my laptop because I can't access it on any computer on the LAN.

The IP Address (local) may have changed. Go to the computer you are having problems connecting to, and into cmd.exe and type :
ipconfig /all
Then try that IP you get from ipconfig

Is there any software by which i can work on my computer when i am away from my home ?


Hello,you can work with your pc even away from it without a software.. In Windows, Remote Desktop allows you to access your computer from a remote location. To enable Remote Desktop, you must have administrative rights on the computer you want to use as the host (i.e., the computer to which you will connect from a remote location), which must be running one of the following versions of Windows: Windows 7 Professional, Enterprise, or Ultimate Windows Vista Business, Enterprise, or Ultimate Windows XP Professional The Remote Desktop Connection client software (for the computer from which you want to connect) is installed by default on all computers running Windows 7, Vista, or XP. Enable the Remote Desktop feature on your host computer From the Start menu, select Control Panel (or Settings, and then Control Panel). Double-click System. In Windows 7 and Vista, click Remote settings. In the "Remote Desktop" section, select one of the two options to allow connections from other computers. In Windows XP, select the Remote tab. Select Allow users to connect remotely to this computer. To choose which users will have remote access, in 7 and Vista, click Select Users... or in XP, click Select Remote Users... . Typically, all administrators of the computer will have access by default. Each user must have a password before you can allow remote access. When you are finished, click OK. Your computer will now be able to accept incoming Remote Desktop connections. Open a connection If you have configured your computer to accept remote connections, to establish a Remote Desktop connection: Depending upon your network configuration and system requirements, you may first have to establish a VPN connection to your host computer's network. From the Start menu, select Programs or All Programs. Select Accessories, and then Remote Desktop Connection. In the space next to "Computer:", type the name or IP address for your host computer. Click Connect. Note: If you would like to adjust any of your connection settings such as screen size, login information, availability of local hard drives and printers, or keyboard and sound behavior, click Options before clicking Connect. In the Log On to Windows dialog box, type your username, password, and domain (if required). Click OK. Once you are connected, you can use your remote computer as if you were sitting in front of it. When you are finished, in the Remote Desktop Connection window, select Start, then Shut Down. In the Shut Down Windows dialog box, from the drop-down menu, select Log Off username, where username is your username on the remote computer. Click OK. goodluck!don't forget to rate,thanks'''''****

How do I setup Remote Desktop Service


I assume that the the computer on which you want the Remote desktop and the target computer whose desktop you want to capture are networked properly and the IP address with other TCP/IP settings are properly configured.

That said Go to Start and click Run the Run box will appear. In the run box type "mstsc" command to connect. A box will pop up asking for the "Computer" enter the computer name or more preferably the IP address which you want to connect to and capture the desktop remotely the Target computer.

Go to the target computer physically and right click the "My Computer" icon and then in the menu select the properties tab and click it you will see "System Properties" window pop up. On the top you will see some tabs. Select and click the "Remote" tab. At the Remote Desktop make sure that the "Allow users to connect remotely to this computer" check mark is selected if it is not ticked tick it. This is the way you are allowing your computer and other computers on the network to connect to this target computer.

Now go back to your computer click the connect tab.It should always connect as long as you give the correct IP or computer name in the "Remote desktop connection" box.

Best of Luck!!!

Remote Login Failure


This message means that the user account you are trying to use does not have rights to log on remotely. You need to go to the server, log on as an administrator at the console. Once logged in, add the user account you want to use to the local "Remote Desktop Users" group.

Remote desktop connection


It sounds like you had a pre-release version of RDC 6.1 installed which you should have uninstalled before installing SP3.

Check this out - under "Remote Desktop Connection" you might find the solution you're looking for.
