Connect to Home PC with Remote Desktop Connect? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I'm trying to configure my home PC (Windows XP) to accept a Remote Desktop Connection from my work PC (also Windows XP).  I went to Control Panel -> System -> Remote -> "Allow Users to Remotely Connect to this Computer", but when I try and connect from my work PC using my home PC's IP address, it gives me an error that says "the client cannot connect to the remote computer".  My home PC is connected to a Linksys router with a cable internet connection.  Is there something I'm missing?

     

    Any input is greatly appreciated!

    Thanks,

    John
