What OS is the client running, ie. XP or Vista? If its XP make sure the RDP
6 client is configured like this... http://theillustratednetwork.mvps.or...ntSettings.jpg
What is the exact error message?
Have you run the http://www.canyouseeme.org
test for the ports your trying
to connect to? Run the test from each PC on your LAN that you want to
remotely connect to. Since you can connect over your local LAN then it comes
down to a port forwarding issue. Remember you can't generally call using the
public IP of the router from another PC on the same LAN. http://theillustratednetwork.mvps.or...ams/Basic.html
Have you tried resetting your router?
I presume your trying to access multiple PCs with Remote Desktop by opening
multiple ports on your router versus through a VPN or SSH tunnel? http://theillustratednetwork.mvps.or...ple_PC_RD.html
