Remote Desktop Connection..

I'm not positive, but I think this should go here. Well, I'm trying to use Remote Desktop using a Win XP Pro machine and a Windows 2000 Pro machine. I have the following set up on my windows xp maching

Comp Name: eloxly
User: *****
Password: *****

I type all that information into the connection box on the 2000 machine and try to connect. I recieve an error saying:

"The specified remote computer could not be found. Verify that you have typed the correct computer name or ip address, and then try connecting again."

I know I have typed the correct computer name and I know that the Windows XP machine is on and connected to the internet. Does anyone have any ideas?


MORE INFO:
Trying to connect to the XP machine from a laptop using a 56k modem.

Thank you,

If I'm not mistaken, both PC's need to be running XP

I'm able to connect to it from a computer running 98 on a LAN with it.

how about if you type an IP adress in stead of the comp's name?

just a suggestion.


(only the 'host' pc needs to run xp)

Jewelzz, you are mistaken.

What your problem is, is differing versions. In order to connect to RDC on XP (which, incidentally, is a 1-session license of terminal server, a la win2k) you must be using the RDC client, which you can download from Microsoft or install off your WinXP CD-ROM. You can, however, go the other way around and connect to Win2K TS using XP's RDC. (If I lost ya, just say so)

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
