Windows 7: Remote desktop connection issues -> console session

Remote desktop connection issues -> console session

Hi,

Very recently I started having a problem with the remote desktop where it says the following message:

"Your computer could not connect to another console session on the remote computer because you already have a console session in progress."

What I am trying to do is to access my Vista Ultimate computer using my Windows 7 Ultimate computer, and have been doing so this way for more than a year. All of a sudden I start getting the message that I have quoted. I do not know why it started doing that.

As well, going in the Users tab of task manager you can see there that I am logged in as a console user.

Please advise.

Thanks

Please disregard this, I'm stupid and did not see that the router changed the IP of the devices. Never bothered making them static but I guess I probably should.
