  • Windows XP Firewall / RDP Does not work

    Hi Guys,

    We have a computer at work with WinXP SP2, legit license of xp,
    Which the firewall is problmatic, the service was not exist in services.msc, i managed to recover and now it exist, i also added some missing reg keys of RDP, and i also ran NETSH Firewall Reset, saw that on some articles,
    the problems that still exist now:

    RDP won't work, even if firewall is OFF, and it's checked on the remote tab
    Allow users to connect remotely to this computer.

    Here's a screen shot of the error, when trying to connect to that machine with RDP.

    Have you considered a straight repair install to get back whatever is missing?

    Do read this thoroughly:

    Esp. the bits to save off the files to prevent re-activation.

    Also, back it up w/ Ghost or equiv. first.

    And apply service packs etc. afterwards.
    Cheers,

    Rick

      That will be as almost as a whole installaion of new machine,
      and might be a lot easier to just put an image i have.
      but i want to know where is the problem at all.

        Actually, repairs are pretty painless (at least they have been for me). All my settings and programs are maintained after the process.

        Your mileage may vary.
        Cheers,
