    I have one stubborn xppro workstation that won't allow remote desktop
    connection from outside the local net. my other three workstations allow
    just fine.
    The problem workstation is a laptop that I also need to set as a mobile user
    with both rww and vpn when it's out of the office.
    I can connect to and from it using remote desktop when it's on the local net.

    Problem, I can't connect to it when it's in the office on the local net and
    I"m at my home computer. I can connect from my home computer to all the
    other workstations and the server.

    How can I re-run "http://server/connectcomputer". It replies that the
    computer is already connected so I am stuck here.

    I can't change the firewall settings as they are controled by "group".

    Any Ideas?

    no luck, I deleted the computer from the server, changed the computer name
    and changed domain to workgroup on the workstation.

    It fails attempts to find http://server/connectcomputer until I manually
    join the domain. Then the server returns "this computer is already
    connected.....".

    help again?

    Well, I could never get "connectcomputer" wizard to run so I connected to the
    domain manually and logged on with a new workstation user profile and a new
    computer name at the server but useing the old user profile at the server.

    Magically everything setup automatically, Outlook, RWW, VPN, I can't find
    anything that doesn't work from the office to home or home to office.

    There is a computer GOD and it's ME, lol.

    Thanks again for all your suggestions.
