If it matters both machines can ping each other.
Remote desktop cant connect to the remote computer for one of these reasons:
1.) Remote access to the server is not enabled
2.) The remote computer is turned off
3.) The remote computer is not available on the network
I already have the remote desktop enabled on my PC under control panel > system properties> remote
I am connecting via IP address and my PC has a static address.
I have the following services running if it matters
Remote access auto connection manager
Remote access connection manager
Remote desktop configuration
Remote desktop services
Remote desktop services usermode port redirector
Remote procedure call
Remote procedure locator
RPC endpoint mapper
For now having NOD32's firewall running does not allow me access and still at the trial and error phase of setting it up to allow me access w/o dropping the firewall, if anyone can teach me how to configure the firewall it would be a great help.
In regards to the sharing problem, are you sure that both machines are using the same default gateway? If not then sharing won't work. To check just type, ipconfig ,into your command prompt then hit enter, both machines should be showing the same default gateway. You may also need to disable or uninstall nod32 for sharing to work properly. After you get sharing set up and working you can reinstall nod32.
As for the RDC problem, using the manual method by typing in the IP doesn't really cover all the ports and permissions that need to be used. Following this tutorial using the GUI will open the required ports and set up permissions for you without having to guess at it. Remote Desktop Connection (RDC) - Network
