RDP is up and running in our work environment both locally and remotely. I just bought a new computer with Win 7 Home edition, and I try to login via RDP with the port information and the IP address, but instead of getting my profile on the remote, I get a different profile (one that doesn't exist. The remote is running Win 7 Professional, and I can RDP into it with XP, Apple, and Vista, but I can't with Win 7 Home. What's up?

Windows 7 home editions do not support RDP as a host. For this you need Professional, Enterprise, or Ultimate editions.

Thanks for your reply. That seems odd to me because the RDP came with the OS and I am able to access my computer, just not under my profile at the remote.

Thanks for suggesting this site. I went through these previous to my post. I can access my computer, but it doesn't seem to recognize me as the user, and is loading a different (I'm assuming a "GUEST") profile. I can log into the server, but I can't hit my computer through a seperate port that I use.

I have been successful on other platforms, this is an odd one.
