Can't connect to SBS 2003 from Win7 using RDC

April 13, 2011 at 14:41:33
Specs: Windows 7
I have a new laptop with Win7 Pro. I have added it to my domain with a SBS 2003 server. I can login and access shares just like any other computer but can't Remote Desktop into the server. Remote Desktop to the server works from every other computer on my network but not the Win7 machine. I can see the server, I just can't connect with Remote Desktop. I have also made sure to enabled remote access on the laptop. Any suggestions?

Firewall issue would be my guess.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

I have already tried disabling the firewall on the laptop but still get the same message "Remote desktop can't connect to the remote desktop for one of the following reasons: 1) Remote access to the server is not enabled (which it is) 2) Remote computer is turned off (it's not) 3) remote computer is not available on the network (pretty sure it is) Please make sure the remote computer is turned on and connected to the network, and that remote access is enabled."

I guess you could do the old way. Remove it from AD. Change the laptop back to a workstation then return it to a domain and add it back to AD.
