Windows 7: Remote Desktop Win 7 to XP machine

Remote Desktop Win 7 to XP machine

Helloo I'm having a problem with connecting my Windows 7 laptop to my Windows XP Pro machine. I have my router at home (where the XP machine is) port forwarded for Remote Desktop, I set up the XP machine completely for connecting to by allowing exceptions for the Remote Desktop.

When on my Win 7 machine I type in the IP address and port and it gets me to the log in screen where it gives me the username (Matt) and I enter my credentials (password). After entering it and clicking OK it brings me back to the log in screen. Over and Over. Does anyone have an idea of what I may have done wrong? I can post a link of the site I used to set it up.

Thanks!

Do you have RDP access turned on for user Matt? If not you will not be able to use RDP.

Yup, RDP is turned on for Matt, I have the firewall exceptions set up for allowing both RDP settings needed. (something with the IIS I can't quite remember the exact exceptions) I am now experiencing problems with connecting in general. I get home later today so I'll check all my settings and IP to make sure they are all right.

What happens if you turn the firewall off? Does it work?
