    im using xp pro on both systems. i could connect both ways a couple of months ago when i last used it. i can ping both computers eachway (on lan) and remote desktop is enabled in my compter system properties). ive disconnected 3rd party firewalls on both but my laptop wont connect to my desktop.

    when i press connect in the remote desktop connection tab, it just greys out the buttons for a second then goes back to normal. if i type a non existent address, like, then it greys out for about 15 seconds and returns an error (client could not connect). so this makes me think it is seeing my desktop on my lan but something is stopping it.
