This page has a general explanation on how to use the PocketPC Terminal Services Client...

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/networking/expert/bridgman_02june10.mspx

Beyond that, look at this page for help enabling Remote Desktop, running a basic test over your
local LAN, port forwarding, etc...etc...etc...

http://theillustratednetwork.mvps.org/RemoteDesktop/RemoteDesktopSetupandTroubleshooting.html

FYI, I use an iPAQ 5555 PocketPC and the built-in TSC to sometimes access an XP Pro SP2 PC running
Remote Desktop either over my home LAN or from the public internet. It works very well...

I don't do Wake-On-LAN, but you might look at this site for possible help. No guarantees however,
particularly if you want to do that from a PocketPC...

Well, I spoke too soon... Here are some links to PocketPC WOL clients that may be of help...

FREE...plus a really really really nice utility to have anyway...A must, IMHO, for troubleshooting
PocketPC network issues...

http://www.cam.com/vxutil_pers.html

Others...

http://www.pocketgear.com/software_detail.asp?id=2825

Note that while I use vxUtil all the time, I have never used the WOL functionality...As always,
YMMV...

Yes, use the built-in TSC if its available...

Are you trying to connect to a PC on your local LAN?
Did you enable RDP as noted on the pages I pointed you to?
What symptoms or error messages do you get when you try to connect?

That sounds like your Connection Manager settings on the PocketPC are not
setup correctly
hey mate:this almost connected me.on pda i get to where i enter
username and password.a message comes up about domain and re-typing
password.i have nothing set up for domain and the page i mentioned has no
listing.this is as far as i've reached.
on my desktop when i bring up remote desktop box it states
connect---do i type anything in that space?

if your motherboard offers the Wake-On-Lan feature and you have turned it
on in the bios then try this;
hey mate:i'm getting this card.they tell me it will wake my desktop
from my pda.
The FA312 Ethernet Network Card connects PCs to other networked computers,
printers, zip drives, routers, network storage and the Internet. Plug it in
and you'll achieve high-speed transfer of all kinds of data. Model FA312,
with Wake-on-LAN, allows you to remotely access your PCs at any time to
perform administrative tasks. Update your system and applications, start
management asset programs, download files, track inventory - all this and
more can be done outside of working hours, while network traffic.

Is this at home or at the office? I use this at home in a work group environment and do not see any
reference to a domain address when I use the TSC on my iPAQ 5555 PocketPC. Try leaving the domain
entry blank and just enter the user and password information...

ok, so it looks like your network card will support it. I'm assuming that
your motherboard will support it (most do,l but check your bios settings
for it and make sure it is enabled). Your PDA will obviously need access
to the internet or your network. So, all you have to do find the magic
packet software for your PDA. Took a quick look around and didn't find
anything, but there has to be some out there.

Good luck

Your calling, from the PocketPC to the XP Pro desktop, over your private LAN using the IP of the
desktop correct?

The error message, "...could not log on.make sure user name and domain are correct than enter user
name and password again..." seem to indicated a problem with the user ID and/or password. Is the
user ID your trying to use an "Administrator or a member of the Remote Desktop Users Group"? Are you
sure your using the correct password?

Port forwarding has nothing to do with calling over a private LAN. That only comes into play when
calling from a remote location. When calling locally use the private LAN IP of the target RDP host
desktop PC...

I don't understand the "...on my desktop what do i put in remote desktop connection window?"
question. If your calling from the PocketPC then there is nothing to do on the desktop RDP host
presuming you have setup/enabled Remote Desktop correctly...

Are you quite sure that this login request and failure is the Remote Desktop
login, or is it some other form of login? What application are you using on
the PDA at this point?

Robin,

I get the same Remote Desktop error from my XP Pro host on my iPAQ 5555 if I use the wrong
password...
