Someone asked this question a few months ago and I have the exact same problem. I have tried all of the suggested solutions in the other posting (in particular reinstalling the video card on the server), but have not had any luck. I have gone through this troubleshooting guide in detail with no results: http://theillustratednetwork.mvps.org/RemoteDesktop/RemoteDesktopSetupandTroubleshooting.html
I have a client with Remote Desktop enabled that I can't connect to in our local network. When I enter in the machine ip/port in the connect box and hit Connect, it briefly gives the normal "Connecting..." dialog box.
However, after 2 seconds it just drops. No error message, nothing. Just disappears as if nothing was happening.
- Windows XP SP3
- Windows firewall is open for 3389TCP
- Machine is on a domain
- RDP is enabled in My Computer
- User is a local admin
I have loads of other machines on the same domain with the same GPO that work fine.
