Okay I know this is not hard, but I can't connect with Remote Access.

Trying to connect a W7 to a Xp ser.3.


I checked firewall setting and Remote settings in the Xp comp, I make sure it has password.
Once I look for the I.p. Address in the cmd and type it into my W7 comp it does not allow connection.

I think it might have something to do with the Router but I go to the router settings, I type in "advanced connections" the I.P. of the computer that I want
to be controlled however it will not save the settings. Well it saves them but then it refreshes and there is no settings that I input it in.

I know its not hard but I can't figure it out. :thumbsup:

Sorry If I am to difficult to understand, I try to explain as clear as possible

When you say it doesn't allow the connection, does it give you an error message?

Can you ping the XP machine from the Win7 PC?

Not sure what you are trying to do in the router settings.

On the XP computer on the remote tab did you add the user account you want to have remote access via the select remote users box?

Yes it gives me a error message something like: Windows could not connect to Computer. Contact your Administrator.

I am not sure what you mean by ping the XP to the Win7 PC.

In the router settings there are ports I can open or make sure that Remote Access is not being blocked by the Router.
I am not sure but as I was doing research it seems that in the router there is a option for Remote Desktop Connection by the ports 3389.

I don't know much about this area, but the little that I know makes me get very confused. :thumbsup:

No, I did not add the user account I want to have access to.

What I did on the Remote Tab is checked of the two Boxes. One that allows computer to be controlled, and the other that allows computer to control.

Thank-you I will try this suggestion, today. :thumbsup:

Pinging the XP machine - On the XP machine click Start -> click Run -> type cmd and hit enter -> in the box that pops up, type ipconfig -> the IP address is what you are looking for. Go to the Win7 machine -> click the window button (aka start) -> in the search bar type cmd -> in the list right click cmd and click Run as Admin -> in the box that pops up, type ping <space> then the IP address of the XP machine like ping 192.168.2.2 and hit enter.

You are looking for "Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss)" that line and it should look like that.

What the ping will do is tell you if the most basic of network connection is there. If you can't ping to and from a PC then something is blocking it, a firewall or something. If you can ping to and from then its a permission thing, and those are a pain to track down lol.
