I am working on a computer that has Windows XP SP3, I cannot get it to connect to a terminal server from within the regular OS. It gives me a Remote Desktop Disconnected error saying the server name is bad and I need to enter the name again. Here is the kicker, when i log into safe mode I can connect to the server using the exact same server name and creds.
I have tried-
Using another RDP program (2x)
Ensuring that it can use remote desktop (control panel->system->remote tab)
creating another user account (both the one I was using and the new one were administrator accounts)
Ensuring Firewall ports are open
Checking for Malware (2 different scanners)
Checked remote services (they all appeared to be started and running)
I'm using an older Dell Lattitude E5500
I am quite frankly out of ideas, anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks in advance!
*update, this has been resolved. It turns out a copy of Norton was was completely uninstalled and the Norton firewall was blocking RDP.
