    Connecting to VPC 2007 trought Remote Desktop Connection

    Hello. I have a small home network connected like this:

    Computer A - Wired Connection to a router
    Laptop B - Wireless Connection from router
    Virtual Machine C - Running on Laptop B

    VM C has internet connection trough network adapter Broadcom 802.11b/g WLan
    and I have checked "Enable Remote Desktop on this computer" in System
    Properties > Remote tab. I can access internet in the VM C.
    I want to access to VM C from Computer A trough Remote Desktop Connection
    but it cannot communicate with it. I cannot ping it also from Computer A.
    I would like to know what is the possible explanation to this since I'm not
    using NAT (ipconfig -> 192.168.2.10).

    Regards

    Have you verified that the firewall is set to allow remote access? Try
    disabling the firewall on the VM and see if you can ping and get
    remote access. If you can, then you just need to configure your
    firewall.
