HELLO EVERYONE.. I HAVE THE ANSWER!!! After further review (and a lot of trial/error).. In Control panel/Windows Firewall: Exception tab: Enable Remote Desktop. In Advanced: Enable Local area connection, then select 'Settings'. Enable Remote Desktop, and also, enable HTTP. (Http will allow you to web interface a remote desktop, but must be enabled elsewhere if you wish to use this feature.. neat!) Drop me an e-mail if you want to use web remote desktop. WORKS GREAT!!

    Subject probably well out of date but only just found this site and need HELP!! I am a remote desktop user which links to a server in the North of England. No problems until recently. Now it allows the connection when I enter my user name and password, BUT then the links will not work - a 'hand' overs over the icon, but the normal mouse click will not activate it. It has been tested by the host site and works fine, so problem must be with settings on my computer. Can anyone offer not too technical walk through of settings I should check/change? (Have managed to lose system restore points, so can't do anything involving that!) THANK YOU....
