Problem I have : "Can't take over my PC by RDP"
OS : Windows XP
I have used RDP towards my computer (host X) for a while now and it worked like a charm.. no problems.. until recently.
I can connect to my computer (host X) over my RDP port (in this case not 3389, using a custom port for security reasons)
But just before the windows log-in appears.. the RDP 'window' closes and return back to the MSTSC client where you can enter the host/ip and extra settings.
Troubleshooting performed :
Checked if the port was in listening mode, tested if I could reach the remote host bij telnet (and the port), checked event logs for any unusual events, reconfigured RDP.
host X can use RDP towards other machines, but just no RDP seems 'possible' to host X.
I have checked virus-scanners // firewalls and disabled these 100% to see if this was the problem without succes. the same situation occured.
The next step I could take is perform some network monitoring for the data.
Anyone else has some experience with this problem and any solutions or thoughs?
Reconfigured towards 3389 but the same error...
It does open the RDP-windows screen with the bar in the upper-screen (where you can close the window, minimalize, full-screen, where the IP-address is displayed)...
this is displayed for lets say... .5 secs and then disappears.
Also tried to restart the services (also rebooted the computer).
thanks for thinking
