Hello everyone

I cannot connect to remote computers running Windows XP Prof, I have enabled the remote desktop checkbox, but it seems that i cant see the remote users in the Select Remote Users option.

Another note is we are using a network and were in the WORKGROUP group, I can share files and stuff but it seems i cant connect to any remote desktops.

Please any help would be appreciated and thanks in advance!!

What about software firewall configurations? Are you sure these are not blocking RDP?

You could give LogMeIn Free a try.

Actually I disabled the firewall in an attempt to connect, but to no avail :(

If you're connecting across the internal network to another computer you could try something like TightVNC
