You can only log into the Guest account remotely.
You will need too setup the access list for the remote users. You need to add your user name to the remote users list.

Once you add the remote user name it should work.
Thanks. I've set up the Guest account, but I won't be able to try it out until I get home tonight.
Will logging in as "guest" still allow me to have access to everything I would normally see (Outlook and pst files mostly).
I'm not sure about access permissions using the Guest account with RDC
but you should be able to access everything by adding the user name to the RDC accounts list
That quote was from another site and I'm not too sure about using the Guest account " I did not actually say that..... it was simply quoted from another site
" The horse is dead so please stop beating it guys. I believe the rest of the info is absolutely correct, the requirement to add the Usernames to the RDC list is mandatory.
Adding the User names to the list is just another security layer and is required
so I highlighted the important settings that need attention.
Hopefully adding the user name to the RDC list
should allow you to access the machine, you may also need to create invitations and adjust the time limit if needed. Follow the yellow highlight in the pictures to get the settings correct.
