Here a cry for help coz I'm stuck beyond my imagination. And believe me, I have a BIG imagination ;-)
Ok, I have a couple of computers.
1: Windows 2003 Server in the closet.
It has terminal services installed on it.
2: Windows XP Pro on my desk
It have Remote Desktop Connection installed on it and... it works. I can connect to computer 1
3: Linux Gentoo on my desk
It has rdesktop installed from source and again no problem. I can connect to number 1.
4: Lil'old laptop with Win 98 also with Remote Desktop Connection installed.
And I can connect to computer number one... ehhr ho ? wait a minute ? I can't connect no more ?
That is SOOOOOOOO odd.... It has worked but it stopped working ?
This is the error I get :
"The client could not connect to the remote computer.
Remotre connections may not be enabled or the server is too busy to accept new connections.
It is also possible that network problems are preventing your connection.
Please try connecting later. If the problem continues to occur, contact your administrator."
Well, the server is not too busy. With computer 2 and 3 I can still connect.
I have (as far as I can see) no network probems. I still have internet on the laptop (this post was made on my laptop). And if I install VNC on my laptop, I can connect to machine number 1 ????
Now I just know I changed something but I have absoloutely no clue what so ever why it "suddenly" doesnt work anymore ???
What happens if you type telnet localhost 3389 (assuming that 3389 is the remote port) at the command prompt on the Win98 machine?
When I telnet to myself on the laptop, nothing is reacting and I get the dumb old "Cant connect" error.
When I telnet to the Windows 2003 server I get connect, hower I don't see anyting in the terminal windows. Is that normal ?
Afaik I didn't change the port. The other computers should work on the same port.....
IF the port used on the Win98 PC is also 3389, this means that there's your problem: It's not finding the service. I don't have a Win98 machine ready for testing right now...
Yes, this means it's connecting to the service. That's what you want to see on the Win98 machine too.
Ehhrr I think I lost you there ?
1: I connected, or rather tried to connect from my laptop to my laptop to see if anything is using the port. No connection possible...
NB: I have no memory resident programs on my laptop, exept for my bluetooth drivers...
2: Then I tried to connect from the laptop to the W2003, I got connected....
So correct me if I'm wrong I don't think the laptop is to blame, shouldn't I be searching on the W2003 server ?
