Remote Desktop Connection Errors

I am trying to setup a RDC with a static IP for my PC so I can access it from work. I started messing around with my laptop and PC trying to Remote Access them from one to another locally before doing set up my router to do port forwarding. I noticed that none of my laptops in my house can connect to my PC for Remote Access but I can connect to any laptop from my pc. I don't know what's going on. I've changed the IP on my PC 4 times and still nothing. Hard reset on my router, but nothing.

Hi,

1. What OS are you using on the laptops: XP or Windows 7? RDP'ing from XP to Windows 7 works but you have to make a change in Windows 7 to allow older OSs to connect.

To allow older OSs like XP to connect to Windows 7, the following option must be set on the Windows 7 side:

Allow connections from computers running any version of Remote Desktop.
