For some weird reason, RDP (remote desktop connection) is not working between my PC and laptop. Here is the scenario:

PC: Windows 10 Pro. Connected to the router through wire.

Laptop: Windows 10 Home. Connected to the router through WIFI.

RDP is enabled and is in firewall allowed list on the laptop. The connection is set as Private Network on both machines. I have even joined both machines to the same HomeGroup. I can access laptop's shared folders on the PC. It's only RDP that is not working. Any clues?


Windows 10 Home does not have an RDP server, only client. The RDP server is not part of the home license.
