    Hey everybody.
    I've been trying to set up a remote desktop connection on my freshly built Win7 machine. I'm trying to access that PC from my laptop (WinXP Pro) within my house. I have gone over the settings dozens of times & everything should be set up correctly but I'm still having an issue logging in. No matter what I do when I try to log in it says incorrect password. I changed the password on both machines to the same four letter word (to simplify things) & I still get an incorrect password error. I only have two accounts set up, one in my name & then the admin one, both with the same password. Any idea why it keeps denying my password? Oh, & I have NO issues logging in when I'm actually at my machine.

    Hi

    Have you tried reconfiguring remote desktop security settings in your windows 7 machine to a lower level, accepting remote desktop connections from less secure version of remote desktop ?
