I usually connect to a remote server over Remote Desktop Connection, however this time it doesn't work (for this particular new server) and I don't really know what to blame.
I connect to the network using VPN an that works fine, however when I want to use Remote Connection to connect to the server it won't work ... I think the problem might be that the remote server has the same ip in its domain that a server has in our domain.
I'm not sure how to check what is really the problem. If I try to ping after connecting the VPN, I think I'm still getting the response from our server, not from the remote one.
Is there a way to specify domain name when trying to ping?
Either way I'm not sure why I can not connect to the server. The bottom line is that the VPN connects just fine and remote connection won't work. What is usually at fault?
P.S.: I don't have the control over any of the two Domains or IPs.
EDIT: This just became weirder ... I just tried RDPing to the remote server in question and got the following error message:
The connection was denied because the user account is not authorised for remote login.
Then I tried entering the wrong password on purpose and it tells me the password is wrong. Now this leads me to believe that the Remote Desktop Connection works correctly and the IT company on the other side just screwed up my user rights ... Is that possible? Would that explain what is going on?
