Windows 7: Remote Desktop Can't connect XP to Win7

Remote Desktop Can't connect XP to Win7


I have a XP pro SP3 system that I can't connect to a Windows 7 64bit system. It just fails to connect at all. I've read through a Windows 7 pdf book on setup for remote and checked all the settings. Does anyone have any ideas?

Welcome coolecho

If you want a really easy way to connect remotely, try TeamViewer.

I use it daily from work to home & from home to work.
