I have a laptop and a PC both running Windows 10. PC is connected to the router through wire and laptop through WiFi. The problem is that laptop's RDP can access my PC, but not the other way around (i.e. PC's RDP cannot connect to the laptop). I have ensured the following:
- Both machines can ping each other.
- Both machines can access each other's shared folders.
- Remote Assistance is allowed on both machines.
- RDP is in firewall's allowed list of programs on both machines.
- Using IP instead of machine name also doesn't work.
- There is no special error message in Event Viewer.
RDP spends some time saying "Initiating remote connection", but then fails with the following message:
Remote Desktop can’t connect to the remote computer for one of these reasons:
1) Remote access to the server is not enabled.
2) The remote computer is turned off.
3) The remote computer is not available on the network
Make sure the remote computer is turned on and connected to the network, and that remote access is enabled.
Obviously none of these 3 is the problem here. What else should I look for?
