IT experts... Remote desktop

hi,
can anyone advise... google found solutions not helping me solve this one?

I used to be able to Remote desktop connect to my PC but now I can not and I don't know when it stopped working.

- Remote desktop is enabled.
- port 3389 is forwarded on my router.
- netstat -a is showing 3389 as LISTENING.
- I can ping my IP address.
- BUT diagnostic PortQuery (portqry.ex e) program is showing 3389 as ....
NOT LISTENING
portqry**** -n (my IP here) -e 3389 -p TCP exits with return code 0x00000001.

What can I try next?

    Does that kinda flash up as if it were an error?

    no... port query is a program http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;310099 that you can run for connectivity probs.

    the bit you quoted is the result

    Could it be possibly a firewall? i know Norton has caused problems in the past, even the Xp Firwall i THINK has been mentiond to cause problems, although it may have been from another subject im thinking about.

    Seems abit odd.

    Actaully i did a search and i knew i read about this problem somwhere ages ago.

    You might actually need to down load a Fix from MS. looking for a link.

    Just read this.

    http://www.mcse.ms/archive67-2005-4-1574061.html

    seems like a similar problem, was down to not having the correct IP addy , i think.

    I don't run a software firewall... I have the XP on disabled
    I don't have Norton

    I can connect from my laptop using my 192.168.0.2 local IP number but not my 81.178.7xxxxx IP address

    The error is:
    The client could not connect to the remote computer.
    Remote connections might not be enabled or the computer might be to bust to accept new connections.
    It is also possible that network problems are preventing your connection.
    blah blah conntact your admin blah blah

    Here s stupid obvious question, what version are all the Windows?

    Im just gonna assume Pro actually

    Did you try about the Null password, its been known to block connections, i dont understand how fully myself but its been mnetioned.

    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;q303846

    Another one with that specific message is their is a Port Forwading issue with your router.

    http://www.portforward.com/routers.htm gives a BIG list of routers that may need setup slightly differently.



    Fcuk, now i know why so many dont want to work in Networking! bloody RD!

    I only had had the port 3389 forwarded as TCP in my hardware firewall.
    Then I changed it to UDP (instead of TCP) and it worked like nothing was ever wrong LOL
    Funny thing was I had also tried setting it as TCP/UDP which should have included both settings previously and it failed.

    But after I got it working with UDP only I changed it back to both TCP/UDP and it works like that now.
    Strange but true...



    Now I only have a "share" problem between my laptop and PC if I sort that I will almost have a fully working XP machine!!!
    Oh no, I still can not get the speaker icon in the task bar near the clock.

    RE: IT experts... wireless network folder share 2006/07/20 19:43:12 (permalink)

    right...
    could you guys give me some advice
    I did have a prob being that I could share laptop folders but not PC folders... the lappy could see them but was denied access.

    I have now fixed a folder sharing problem on my network but now I don't know how I am best operating:

    When I enabled simple file sharing it worked right away no messing

    I disabled simple file sharing and it stoped working again BUT...
    adding the "everyone" into the security tab screen made it work!!!

    So how am I best operating?
    1. with simple file sharing
    2. adding everyone into security tab of all folders I want to share

    Will just anybody be able to connect to my wireless workgroup MSHOME and see all my shares>?

    If your using a workgroup, your best off with simple file sharing and not NTFS permissions, NTFS permissions work better once your on a domain and can see all clients and then add each user/group the level of secruity you would like.
    As for your question about weather others can get into your mshome network..you should be fine, your network card is prob set to look for a access point(eg the router) to obtain an IP address and hence join a local network within your home(which you have a password for I take).

    UDP is a connectionless protocol e.g. it sends data to another machine without checking if the data got there before sending the next lot. Steaming videos use this type of protocol as it has very little overhead.
    TCP on the other hand is the opposite, it sends data but waits for acknowledgements before sending next batch, thus making it slower, more overhead however more reliable.
