Remote Desktop Connect To XP


Recommended Posts


I recently bought a Asus Box with Windows XP Home Edition,, planned to use it as a small server. My idea is to manage it using a remote desktop connection from my main computer running Vista. Unfortunately this is not working.

Trying to connect I get a message simular to:

"Remote Desktop Disconnected"

This computer can't connect to the remote computer. Try to connect again. If the problem continues, contact the owner of the remote computer or the network administrators.

I've disabled all firewalls, enabled all things that I think can affect this.

What to do?

Use UltraVnc.

Its a small remote access utility.

Just install the Server on your laptop.

Then install the viewer on the machine that you want to view from.

Connect using the IP address on the machine that you want to view.

Its pretty straight forward to use.
