I have PCs
X3 in a
network X (Ethernet Lan) all of them in
workgroup XW and running windows XP pro 32 bits version.
The same PC
X1 is also in
network Z (wifi Lan) with another PC
Z1 via a wireless router.
I want to remote desktop the PC
X1 from my external laptop
workgroup YW , windows 7 home premium 32 bits) via wirelss wifi network
I have successfully connected my laptop
I made sure that the firewalls on both sides (both PC
Y1) are turned off. And set
allowed remote connections at mycomputer > properties > properties page.
After that i enter the name of the PC
X1 in remote desktop connection program of
Y1 and tried to establish the connection. But i am getting this message everytime i try.
FYI: i can ping the PC
X1 from my laptop
Y1. I am the administrator so i don't need to set up account in
mycomputer> properties> remote desktop .
Any Idea what is causing the problem?
Don't know if it is gonna be helpful but i added the network layout with their ip addresses. Red color is
network X , blue is
I tried using
port 3389 like this :
188.8.131.52:3389 but got the same error message as above.
