off topic - XP Remote Desktop over VPN problem RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • OS: XP Pro V2002 SP2.

    Trying to use XP Remote Desktop within VPN (using XP inbuilt VPN Client/Server) between two standalone PCs. Each work fine on their own ie. VPN connects OK or RDT connects and works OK, but once I setup VPN connection and try and run RDT over it, it fails to connect. I have used this solution successfully between two XP PCs, but with domains defined (using Computer Name in the RDT Connection 'Computer:' field). The PCs I have the problem with both have a workgroup defined, not domain, (Windows default of WORKGROUP). I have tried both the Computer Name and the hostname, neither work.
    Can anyone help with a solution?
