I've run into a problem connecting to my remote computer via Remote Desktop. I think it is a network configuration problem but am not sure what to check (or more appropriately, have the system guys check). Here is the situation:
When I try to connect to the remote computer from the main wired network at work I get the following error:
The network is not blocking outbound connections. From the wireless network here, I don't even get the error message, it just sits there trying to connect but doesn't do anything. I get the same effect if I use the IP address of the computer instead of the name.
I know that the computer I'm trying to connect to is properly configured to accept Remote Desktop connections since I was able to connect to it just fine last night from a third network (and a different computer) not associated with work and I'm the only one who connects to it. That rules out possibilities 1, 2, & 4 from the error message.
Any ideas on what the network problem could be that is causing this error?
