I have a small home network and recently I tried to enable remote desktop for one of the PC's. I have a mix of Windows 7, Windows Vista and XP runing alongside Ubuntu, centos and others (some virtual, some real). I have a few Windows 7 PC`s that can be connected to using remote desktop from inside and outside the network (port redirects on routers, etc, etc) and some XP ones.
The trouble is when I tried to do the same thing to a Windows 7 laptop I discovered I can't connect to it from another Windows 7 PC inside the home network. To sum it up
Working: XP --> Windows 7 not working: Windows 7 --> Windows 7
What I tried
- disable and enable remote desktop (my computer -> remote settings)
- removing and adding users to the remote settings window
- adding a new user to the machine, administrator or 'normal' user
- checking the firewall settings on the machine and set 'allow' to remote desktop for both 'home/work' and 'public' networks
Any tips on what should I do next? It displays ' .. secure connection' and after that the window with 'Your security credentials did not work' and it lets me try again with another user/password..
