I have spent hours searching Groups, the Web, and following\ntutorials... sigh! Still no success.\n\nHomeComp (host): WinXP-Pro, SP2, sitting behind LinkSys wireless\nrouter; set up to allow Remote Desktop; Windows Firewall off (relying\non router), port 3389 enabled, users added as Remote Desktop group\nmembers\n\nLaptop (client): Win Vista Business (new Dell machine) running McAfee\ninternet security suite\n\ngoal: use Remote Desktop with Laptop as client and HomeComp as host\nwhen my wife is on the road with Laptop\n\nI got Remote Desktop running on the laptop at home with no problem,\nand this was using actual WAN-side IP of HomeComp as the target, not\njust internal 192.168 addressing. Worked great.\n\nBUT, when out "on the road" the Laptop can get on free wireless\nInternet fine but cannot get Remote Desktop to run. Have tried all\nkinds of permutations :(\n\nCurious info: every time my wife tries to run Remote Desktop on the\nLaptop from the road, I see the login/logout entries in Event Viewer\nhere on the HomeComp, and it lists the login attempts as failures due\nto "unknown user name or bad password", even though I know it is the\nright name/password cuz I can use it to log in locally, and I have\nbeen very careful that my wife is using the right name/password (and\nno caps lock).\n\nI swear I have worn out the search buttons trying to do this on my\nown, but I am out of ideas. Any help is sincerely appreciated.
