Cannot initiate Remote Desktop session



Setup is a wired/wireless router. I'm attempting to open a
Remote Desktop connection to an XP pro machine (wired) from
a wireless HP laptop running Vista Home Premium.

When I try to connect, there is a pause of about 10 seconds
and the Vista machine reports that it cannot complete the
connection with a message that conveys nothing about why it

The strange part is that I have a second HP laptop of the
same model running the same software with all the same
updates applied etc etc... and that one connects without a
hitch. The user name and pw are the same on both, and match
the name/pw on the XP machine.

How can I debug this?

The rejection is coming from the XP end. The firewall there
is configured to permit RDC, and the other, identical HP
laptop can connect to it just fine.
