Windows 7: Remote Desktop - Puzzle for the Masters

Remote Desktop - Puzzle for the Masters

After a month with Windows 7 Professional, I still can't access my office computer. I think the hardware, firmware, and software are okay. I think it's a configuration problem. What follows is a description of the configuration, with as much detail as I can muster (changing certain information to protect the innocent). I can get a tunnel enabled, but I can't get a remote desktop connection. Three points go the genius who can solve this puzzle:

Just to be sure... You enabled RDP on the office PC? Also, you are trying to RDP into the PC from a computer inside of the same network when you are attempting to use RDP?

I reformatted my post, which might make it easier to read and might answer your question. I enabled RDP on the office PC. I am attempting to establish a VPN through the Internet from my home PC to the office PC. The topology is as follows:

HomePC >> {{{Internet}}} >> DSLModem(bridged) >> VPNRouter(GatewayMode) >> Switch >> OfficeNodes(includingMyOfficePC)

I am using Shrew Soft to establish the VPN, and I get to "tunnel enabled." But I can't get the RDC to work.

I realise that "try different software" can be an annoying response, but I access my office computer from my home computer, through a VPN, using TeamViewer. It worked first time and has been rock solid ever since. It looks like that might solve your problem?

remote desktop and norton 360

There is an issue with remote desktop where you have to go to BOTH computers and tell Norton 360 they are a trusted network in order for remote desktop to work. Local printers do not work (as of yet that is what I am online researching now, easy print my butt). I am wondering if the printer issue is also norton.
