comment Win Server 2008: RDC to Win7 Pro machine not authenticating user password
Yes, the user is in the administrators group. The ID was not in the remote desktop group, so I added it there too and still can't RDC to the Win7 machine.

comment Win Server 2008: Can't ping internal machine by IP(IPv4), but can by name(IPv6)
I now have another machine on the network that I can ping if the firewall is turned off, but cannot if the firewall is on. I do have the allow RDP process enabled in the inbound rules to allow it to run. This one is clearly in the firewall settings. What other rule would block RDC?

Yes, RDP is enabled on both the server and the target machine. Although, in this situation, I am trying to RDC from the server to the Win7 target. A login screen is actually coming up, but the ID/PW is not being accepted via RDC where it is being accepted locally on the machine. I hope that helps clarify a bit.

Hi Alharaka and thanks for your reply. I'm not sure what made the pings work now, but they are working. To answer your questions, yes we are using VIPRE antivirus. How I disabled the firewall was by logging into the server via RDC, going to Windows Firewall & Adv Security->Overview->Windows firewall properties. From there, I set the firewall state to 'Off' for the Domain and Private profiles. I renabled them after testing the pings. Interestingly, looking at the Local Security Policy via secpol.msc, it says that windows firewall states are not configured.

Thank you for your reply Sam. This is odd..now it isn't timing out any longer and is returning the IP. The result you asked for is: Reply from 10.1.10.3: bytes=32 time=3ms TTL=127 Before, it was timing out. I can now ping via IP and name both. RDC still is not authenticating, but I should open a separate thread for that issue.
