Remote Desktop cannot get thru OneCare Firewall RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have two PCs in my OneCare group - one local and one distant. I regularly access the distant PC from the local PC by using Remote Desktop. The local PC is running Windows Vista Ultimate, and the distant PC is running Windows XP Professional. Both PCs are running OneCare. All software have the latest updates.


    I have been able to get Remote Desktop to work properly, allowing the local PC to gain access to the distant PC. It works wonderfully well. The problem is that I can only get it to work if I turn off the OneCare Firewall on the distant PC. I then have to ignore all of the warnings seen that tell me to turn on the OneCare Firewall.


    How can I get OneCare's firewall to allow the Remote Desktop  connection to pass through the firewall?
