Windows XP Professional to Vista Home Premium Remote Desktop

The remote desktop client is included in all editions of Vista. What is not
supported in Home Premium is incoming remote destkop connections, how can I
get it to enable incoming connections from XP Pro?

Hi,

Home Premium cannot be the host, only a client. You would have to use a
third party product.

Hosting should be available on all versions! Microsoft is assuming
that everyone using computers is capable of sending out a request for
remote assistance - they are not!

Um, so if they can't use RA where they can control access of the helper,
then they should be allowed to use RD where they have no control over the
remote user? No, don't think so. Bad idea.

RD is not designed as an remote assistance tool, it is for users to access
their base machine to work remotely.

My tech guys at work are telling me that because I have Vista Home Premium I
will not be able to use RDC to access my desktop at work. From what I've
been reading, wouldn't that mean my vista laptop would be the client and not
the host and that I should be able to do this? I can get the connection
through our VPN site but when I try to do the RDC to my IP it will not
connect. Am I wasting my time trying to find the fix? Should I just upgrade
to Vista Ultimate?

CMills... I think a co-worker of mine is having the same problem you are describing. I don't know if other people that have replied here understand exactly what you meant.

It sounds like we have the same setup at work that you have. I have Vista Ultimate so I don't have a problem but my friend has Home Premium and can't get logged in to her work pc from home.

You are correct when you said that you would be the client not the host but, if your work is like mine, when you are connecting to the VPN, it is actually trying to make a connection to your computer on port 3389, which is the RDP port.

Since all incoming RDP connections to a Home Premium pc are blocked, apparently, that's why it's not working.

I had the same problem with Vista Ultimate at first too. But I had "remote desktop" enabled on my pc, so it was using port 3389 already. when I tried connecting to my VPN at work, it was telling me that it couldn't bind to that port. as soon as i turned off "remote desktop" on my computer, I was able to get into my pc at work.

Does any of this make any sense to anyone? i'm not sure if i'm explaining it right or not :)
