    I can remote desktop from host PC to laptop, I can ping both ways, but everytime I run remote desktop from laptop to host I get the "your remote desktop connection has ended, possibly for one of the following reasons

    - The administrator has ended the session
    - An error occurred while the connection was being established
    - A network problem occurred

    - Host PC is running XP Pro
    - Laptop is running windows XP media center edition

    I have tried all the updates I could find. Ran all the microsoft updates it autodected was missing and still can't get the laptop to remote desktop to the host PC any ideas? Any help would be great I am completely stuck and out of options to try.

    Laptop and Host both now have static IP's. I am using usernames in the admin groups with passwords. Both machines have ports open. Allow users to connect on both computers are checked to allow.

    Again any help you could provide would be awesome.

    Any 3rd party firewall on the "host PC"? If so, maybe it is blocking the connection.
