    I'm experimenting with remote desktop
    Now i know you can connect using the remote communication client
    ..I wanted to try and connect via my browser
    So i installed IIS on the remote machine (windows XP)..yes i also installed remote desktop web connection in the IIS details.

    I try to connect from my host , a windows 2k3 system
    i give in the details in my browser http://ip/tsweb

    then i says that the page cannot be found icon_sad.gif
    I do this process in virtual pc systems, i don't have internet connectivity but i can access the remote system via ping etc, its implemented correctly in the domain

    edit:
    well the service is running correctly on the remote machine, because when i do http://remote_computer/tsweb
    i see the page for connection, of course useless to connect to a machine where i'm currently working on.

    Here are my NIC configs.
    win xp
    -------
    IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 10.1.106.216
    Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.0.0
    Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 10.1.0.1
    DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 10.1.106.116

    win 2k3
    ---------
    IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 10.1.106.116
    Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.0.0
    Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 10.1.0.1
    DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 10.1.106.116

    What am i doing wrong ?

    Thanx in advance

    hehe sorry

    so my windows firewall on the remote system was stopping the traffic.

    You have to make sure don't allow exceptions is deselected and in the exceptions tab remote desktop is selected.

    If that still doesn't work, just stop windows firewall and use a better firewall :D

    Thanks, opi - it's generally accepted etiquette that if you ask for help, then find a solution, you let the people know who assisted you, and post any further info that may help others reading this thread at a later date. :)
