Console/remote desktop error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

     

    I keep getting the following error message when ever i try to access home server either via the console or Remote desktop:

     

    This computer can't connect to the remote computer.

    Try connecting again. If the problem continues, contact the owner of the remote computer or your network administrator.

     

    This is what i have done so far to try and sort the problem

     

    I can access all computers from the server via remote desktop.

     

    I have checked that all services (remote desktop) are enabled

     

    I have run netstat -an on the server but there is no listing for Port 3389.

     

    Can someone help with this please.

     

    Thanks

    Thanks for the reply.

     

    Sorry,forgot to mention that remote is enabled.

     

    Netgear router is configured for Remote desktop.

     

    I have no problems accessing Shared folders from any computer.

     

    can you think of any thing else please.

     

    Thanks

  • On the server, right click 'my computer' and go to 'properties'.  Click on the 'remote' tab and make sure the 'allow remote desktop connections' box is checked.
