I have been banging my head against the wall for a long time now trying to get remote desktop working on my Win 7 machine.
Here are the things I have tried:
- I have verified using http://www.canyouseeme.org/ and other services that the port is accessible.
- I can use remote desktop inside my local network.
- Port forwarding seems to be configured correctly.
- I have disabled the firewall on both my local computer as well as my DSL Router.
One thing that does concern me is that when I look at the listening ports section on the network tab of the Resource Monitor, the firewall status is
Not Allowed, not restricted. I'm not sure what Not Allowed means but it seems suspicious.
I am at a loss for other ideas to check. It seems that I must be missing something obvious but I can't think what it would be.
