I'm trying to connect to my PC via RDP...
My PC is on a domain, I've enabled remote connections in remote settings, I changed the default port from 3389 to something more obscure that I won't reveal. I've configured the port forwarding in my router settings, and I've also setup a static IP address locally.
At first I couldn't even see my PC, and I learned it was due to my Windows Firewall settings, so I've temporarily turned them right off, now I can see my PC when I connect to it via RDP by typing X.X.X.X:XXXX where X= IPAddress/Port numbers.
For some reason, when I try to log into my PC now, it tells me that my credentials are incorrect. I know for 100% certainty that they are not incorrect, I use them every day. I've investigated caps lock/etc common password problems and nothing I do will allow me to log in using my existing creds.. I'm wondering, is this due to my PC being part of a domain, is it possible that there is some sort of group policy setting that is preventing me from logging in with my domain username? Am I simply not allowed to use my domain username as credentials for RDP and instead I should do it with a local account? So frustrated, *headdesk*ing it all day lol
