Windows 7: Windows remote desktop question

Windows remote desktop question

Let me know if this is in the wrong forum. I'm on my work VPN and trying to remote into my computer at work using Windows Remote desktop. I enter my computer name and user name in the Remote Desktop Connection window. I am then prompted to enter my password. I enter my password and that dialog goes away, but then nothing happens. All that is left is the first Remote Desktop Connection dialog with some fields grayed out. Even if I enter in the wrong password, I don't get an error message. Any dieas?

Are you entering the remote computer's name in, or your computer's name in? I'm hoping the former.
If so, it may be possible that there are issues with your VPN tunnel and possibly administration settings in place.

Are you colleagues able to remote in to their machines, or is this occurring for them too?
