    RDP from XP to Vista Ultimate

    Recently upgraded from Vista Home Premium to Vista Ultimate, specifically to
    enable Remote Desktop.

    netstat -ano shows pc is listening on 3389, pid is the rdp service.
    an exception is set in Windows firewall.
    rdp is set to accept all connections, not just NLA.
    tried turning off A/V.
    tried turning off firewall.

    attempting to connect from XP Pro sp2 with RDP 6.1 fails.

    telnet to port 3389 fails.
    run Wireshark on Vista pc shows inbound connection attempts, but no
    responses from Vista.

    I'm wondering if something failed in the upgrade that is not allowing RDP to
    work. Anything in the registry I can look at? Any other suggestions?

    Thanks,
    Ken

    More notes, the Vista pc is in a workgroup not a domain. Connections have
    been attempted both remotely over a VPN connection and on the same LAN.

    Any type of anti-virus/worm/Trojan software running on the Vista
    machine? Are you running OneCare Live?

    I presume when testing over the local LAN your calling using the private
    static LAN IP of the Vista RDC host machine. Correct?

    I've tried disabling both.

    What anti-virus/worm/Trojan software are you running? In the past there
    have been reports of NAV worm protection blocking RDC incoming requests.
    You may need to uninstall as a test. There have also been reports of a
    Cisco VPN client software blocking RDC requests.
