Hi Guys,

I have XP professional version 2002 SP3. Recently I made the logon screens following the tutorial which was given here.

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/xp-network-log-on-for-home-users/

I presume that this created the problem in remote desktop connection which says

The client could not establish a connection to the remote computer.

The most likely causes for this error are:
1) Remote connections might not be enabled at the remote computer.
2) The maximum number of connections was exceeded at the remote computer.
3) A network error occurred while establishing the connection.

Apart from this other serious issue is my screen goes blank with blue screen and all programs running but none of them respond so I had manually restart the laptop again .So I am bit worried now. :thumbsup:

Coming to the remote desktop connection I did some search on Google and got this link , but I couldnt find the exact hot fix for it.

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/946480/

So can you guys put some light on it.Especially my laptop goes blank all of sudden.

Thanks in advance.

On XP only one person/logon can be on the machine at one time. You cannot have 1 user logged in, and try to login again it will kick the other person off.

Hi mate,

Thanks for reply.

Correct me if I am wrong.
On my personal laptop at home I made the windows login screen as it would be good in using a logon screens and messages when we press ctrl+alt+del. Now when I trying to use "remote desktop connection" to connect to my office network I am getting the error message which I told before.

Ok if that is situation.So can I go back to normal logging without logon or something and Can I use the remote desktop connection ?

But in my office I have same XPSP3 and I can connect to remote locations using "remote desktop connection" .


Cheers.

Are you always logged in to your work machine, and if you are then you will not be able to use Remote Connection. I would suggest using VPN.

When I think of home laptop I think of you using a lap top at home, and trying to access your office network in another building completely separated from your home.

Hi there,

From what ive read you have recently changed the log on screen on your Home laptop to the Ctrl Alt Delete method.
Now when you try and connect to your Work PC your are having the issues described in your original post?

(please do correct me if im wrong)

Cryptodan: When connecting to a system via remote desktop, if someone is logged on then it'll just log them off and the system will sit at the log-in screen, so it doesn't matter if your logged onto the machine or not.

Sreez: from the MS Support Article 321624 there is a link at the top of the page which i believe will take you to the hotfix, i cant download it to my PC because it wont do anything due to me not having the same problem.

Heres the Link

Hope this will help, if not it might help other people understand the problem itself

Hi, sorry the delay in replying.

It shows the hotfix was first release with SP1, this doesn't mean that you have to be using SP1 now.

Windows will create a restore point before it changes anything so if you do have any problems you would be able to restore back to post change.

Hi mate,

You replied that was nice of you.

Ok I installed the hot-fix but now as I was expecting the problem raised saying "setup has detected that the service pack version of the system installed is newer than the update you are applying to it. you can install this update with no service packs installed"

So any idea about this

Cheers again

Personally i'd try the update, you can always roll back your system if it causes any issues, but thats what im like, i try things and if it doesnt work i try something else.

It's down to yourself really, was there a particular reason you wanted the "ctrl, alt, delete" login ?
Could you go back to the normal welcome screen?
Try going back and see if you still get an error, it maybe that system files/settings have changed and that you get the error regardless of login screen.

Hi mate,

Yes I went back to the normal screen and the remote desktop works fine now with the ctrl+alt+del.

But I left the the interactive logon message.Thats good at least

Thanks for your help.
