I have a Windows-7 desktop at office, to which i try to do a remote desktop connection from my home laptop, Windows-Vista home premium. When i say mstsc.exe, enter remote login and password, after some time, it gives an error saying:
Remote Desktop Disconnected: This computer cannot connect to the remote computer. Try contacting system administrator of the remote computer."
On the remote computer:
I have enabled the services needed for remote desktop connection, and they are started automatically.
I have enabled "Allow remote Access to the computer"
In windows firewall of remote computer, i have allowed Remote Desktop Connection service.
1] How can i fix this and get to do a remote desktop connection to my office computer? Any other settings in need to do on remote computer.
2] FYI - My office has a VPN network setup and i can connect to it. I have tried this remote desktop connection to my office desktop both:- after connecting to the VPN network, and also without connecting to the VPN network. In both cases it was same error and i could not connect.
3] Does VPN have any relation to Remote desktop connections being allowed/disallowed. Do they have relation?
Any pointers would help.
