I have a 24" iMac running Yosemite. I need to connect to my server at the office, which is running Windows Server 2008.
Yes, I have already discussed this issue with IT and everything is set up correctly on their end. They do not know anything about the settings on a Mac so the settings on my end are up to me. They have, however, provided me with the VPN IP address, which my Mac is able to connect to. This is as far as I can get because even with the VPN connected, the RDP settings to connect to the server will not work. When trying to connect through RDP I get a "connection denied" error. I have used Apple's built-in RDP, Microsoft's downloadable RDP, and even Parallel's 2XRDP. None of them work and I keep getting the "connection refused" error.
This same result occurs when switching over to Windows 7 in Parallels and trying to connect there. But if I use my Windows 7 laptop I can connect, even when on the same home network as my Mac.
I'm lost because other attorneys in the firm can connect, but they are all running Mavericks. I would prefer not going backwards with my operating system, especially since it looks like an upgraded OS may be forthcoming in the near future.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciate!
