  1. Hello community, I'm having an issue with my Windows 8.1 desktop and remote desktop .

    I'm trying to access my desktop windows 8.1 from my laptop ( win7) via remote desktop .

    I'm totally unable to access this PC via Remote desktop from my laptop on LAN computer ( private network), . I have enabled remote control from System properties>remote, and allow computer to be controllled remotely in the advanced tab. I also deactivated my firewall for all networks. I can ping this machine successfully from the LAN and it has internet access ( I currenly use Teamviewer to access it ) When I attempt a remote desktop from my own laptop ( same LAN as my windows 8.1 problematic computer), I analyze the communicatuoin via Wireshark and see that the windows 8.1 systematically reset the connection via a RST.ACK packet in response to the ACK from my laptop ( tcp.port 3389). the folder sharing works just fine , i.e. the windows 8.1 can share its folder I'm able to access my laptop using the RDP FROM the Windows 8.1 I created two admin account on the windows 8.1 machine , they both have password enabled Does anyone have an idea on what i should try next ? I have tried on another windwos 8.1 and same problem : unable to control this PC via RDP from another PC . Many thanks for your help .
