Re: Cannot Remote Desktop to Vista
I've got a somewhat similar problem, but I'm not able to RDP to any machines
over the internet from my Vista machine. I'm running Vista Ultimate RTM,
trying to RDP to W2K3 server over the internet. 3389 is forwarded on my
router, I can RDP to this machine from XP machines over the internet. Any
ideas?
