Remote to XP Home SP3 from Vista Business? Hello team. I cant remote to "Toshiba" running XP Home SP3 from either of my Vista Machines. I can remote to the Vista machines from "Toshiba" however. When I try to connect it says "This computer cant connect to the remote computer". Any help appreciated! Im using Run - mstsc.

Have you tried disableling the firewall on the tosh?

Have you enabled remote access? Where is the other machine - same network?

Yes if I go to properties on my computer and select the remote tab, then I have allowed remote assistance there. Is that the same thing?

Looks like you need XP Pro thats the issue, thought it might be the case.

Have you applied this Patch Patch XP for a Vista network.
