Remote Desktop stopped working on my Windows 7 machine. This is a huge problem because I need to use RDP to work away from home.
Nothing has changed. My router is still using DDNS properly, the ports are forwarded, and Windows Firewall has exceptions for RDP.
If I turn off Windows firewall, I can gain access, but that's not a permanent solution. I've tried everything from refreshing exceptions to manually opening ports in the firewall. None change the situation. The ONLY thing that works is turning off Windows Firewall.
Please help. I'm beyond frustrated with this issue.
I am unable to stream media from my machine as well. I did not notice this until just now. It seems like all incoming connections to my machine are blocked?
I am able to use Wake On Lan to wake my machine so packets are making it to the machine over WAN.
