Shutdown Command and Remote Desktop

Im having a problem that i just can not figure out. I have two pc's running windows 7 64 bit. One labtop one desk. I have been recently trying to remote desktop but it will not work on neither computer. All the correct options are checked to allow. Firewall has exception for it on both ect. I just keep getting a error message after a long search that its one of 3 problems. remote access not enabled, computer turned off, and computer not available on network. Thats my remote desktop problem. Now my shutdown command problem just states "access denied (5)" Im guessing the cause is the same for both problems. Im able to connect to either pc through networks and also homegroup. Any suggestions? Thanks

Hi and welcome

what version of windows are you running (ultimate, pro, home,etc) anything lower than pro (i think) cant initiate a rdt connection.

By the way there is a free and much easier to use alternative called team viewer. You really should try it
