I wish to connect my machine to a server in some other city. For doing the same I am using the following command:
mstsc -v ip_address_of_server remote desktop can't connect to remote computer for one of these reasons: 1) Remote access to server is not enabled. 2) Remote computer is turned off 3) Remote computer is not available on network. Make sure remote computer is turned on and connected to the network, and that remote access is enabled.
As per previous posts I need to turn off my client computers firewall..which I have...but still it gives me the same message.
Can someone please please help me out...so as to how i may resolve this?? I am really new to networking, etc.
Also when i am pinging:
ping ip_address_of server
I am getting the following response:
Reply from ip_address_of_server: destination host unreachable
Also I did try on ubuntu with rdesktop...still its not been able to connect with it.
Also i know there are other people who are able to connect their machines with the server remotely. So i guess its not working for me only. Also when I accessed the same machine through LAN I was able to do so.
