From a VistaSP2 host running Comodo 5, I’m trying to connect to my XPSP3 host at home through Windows’ Remote Desktop Client, but it doesn’t work although it used to. I don’t know if it’s due to upgrading the XP host from Comodo 3 to Comodo 5 or something else. It used to work with Comodo 3, but it’s been a while since I last tried connecting to my home PC from a remote location.
The ADSL modem/router has a TCP port mapped to allow incoming connections to the XP host.
I notice something:
- In Firewall > View Firewall Events, there’s no trace of an incoming connection request on the RDP port
- Firewall > View Active Connections : No trace of SVCHOST listening on the RDP port
- However, when using the TCPView 3.02 application, SVCHOST is indeed listening on the RDP port.
Any idea what I should check to see why I can’t use the Remote Desktop Client to connect to my XP home PC?
Thank you for any help.
