Will not accept RDP incoming

Hello,

I have done everything I can think of to allow incoming RDP sessions, but it is not working.

I have checked the box under system properties/remote (Allow Remote Assistance connection to this computer) and I have check the box under McAfee Firewall/ports and system services for port 3389.

I have also temporarily turned off the firewall....no good.

I know that system I am RDP'ing from works because I can get to a Windows XP machine.

Thanks in advance.

Sorry but Home Premium does not support incoming RDP.

See link (Scroll down to Remote Desktop Connection):

From whatg I read it is Windows XP Home that does not support it. I thought all versions of Windows 7 did. I will double check that. The settings are there, the RDP app is there I can control another machine from the Windows 7 machine.
