I have a windows 7 Professional system for which I cannot get incoming RDC connections to work.


I went through the stuff on this page.



I am trying to connect initially with a local IP on my local network, so forwarded ports are not an issue. I know I will be forwarding the custom RDC port I configured when I need to connect from elsewhere.


The message is that it cannot connect. I turned off the windows firewall.  Sitting right next to the computer at the same desk with a notebook computer, can't connect.


One thing I did notice.

In the About Remote Desktop Connection dialog box, look for the phrase "Network Level Authentication supported."


The about does include that statement, as well as RDC protocol 8.1 supported.

The article does not say what to do in that eventuality.  So I am stopped atm, and this will require further analysis.


I went through this, and this is what I have set up.

I enabled the allow connections from any version weeks ago.




Does anyone have any ideas to isolate this problem?

I found the problem. A couple of the RDC services had local users and needed to have network service configured.


So it's working.
