I am trying to connect from my home computer to my office computer via Remote Desktop.
When my home computer is connected to the internet via my (wireless) router I get to the point where RDP asks for my username and password and after I do, it holds for a while at "Securing Remote Connection..." and then abandons without any error messages visible.
When I remove my router and connect my home computer directly to my home ADSL modem, it works fine. Why is it that the connection fails when going through my router?
- I've been able to connect successfully via the router in the past.
- In both cases above I am successfully authenticating against my office network through Shrew Soft VPN.
- My home computer is running Windows 7, my office computer is running Windows Server 2008 R2.
Thanks in advance, urig.
Thank you all for your help. I've taken a good look at my router settings (it's a D-Link D-624 btw).
I've realized that when my laptop is docked it's connected both by a cable and by the wireless connection. I guess the wireless connection takes precedence because when I change the IP address mapped to incoming port 3389 I manage to get beyond the "Securing Remote Connection...".
Now I'm stuck at "Configuring remote session..." Any ideas? :)
