I've setup my home network, so that each machine can RDP to each other. All machines are running Windows 7 64-bit, not that it should matter, but all the machines are on the same homegroup, and all have the same one username, with no password enabled on any.
Anyway cutting a long story short,
Under all the machines, in Remote Settings, I'm allowing connections from computers running any version of Remote Desktop.
Because I dont have the need for protecting my machines with a password, the passwork is left blank on all the machines.
However I can't RDP onto only one of my machines.
I've gone into the GPEDIT.MSC under, Windows settings, Security Settings, Local Policies, Security Options, Accounts: Limit local account use of blank passwords to ENABLED.
However, if I try and RDP to this machine, it tells me invalid password.
If I enable a password on this machine, i can RDP onto it, (i tried that as part of my troubleshooting process) Then i tried removing the password to see if that would clear the problem, and unfortunately the invalid password error came back.
I have all my other machines setup the same way, with no password and it lets me RDP on to all of them without issue, thanks to the GPEDIT.MSC entry, It's just on this one, where it wants the password even though there's none set and the use of blank passwords is allowed.
Can anyone point me to a registry key that I may need to delete ?
I've also run the GPUpdate /force command in hope that, that would help, which it didn't. and of course the enabling and disabling of the GPEDIT.MSC entry, with reboots inbetween.
Anyone able to help please ?
