XP and Remote Desktop Connection issues



I've got 2 XP computers at home. From one I can connect to the Windows 2000
TS at the office without any problem. From the other XP computer, I get
this error message. A colleague of mine has noticed the same behavior with
other XP computers connecting to different Windows 2000 Terminal Servers -
connects immediately with some and doesn't with others. What could be
causing this? What is odd is I tried to connect with the one which gets the
error message first, when it couldn't connect, I tried the other XP computer
and it doesn't have this problem - it connects immediately. The network
settings seem to be the same.

The client could not establish a connection to the remote computer:
The most likely causes for this error are:
1) remote connections might not be enabled at the remote computer
2) the maximum number of connections was exceeded at the remote computer
3) A network error occurred while establishing the connection.

Have you checked the EventLog on the Terminal Server?

Are both clients running XP Pro, or is the one that doesn't
connect running XP Home Edition? If so, you need to buy a TS CAL
and install it on your TS Licensing Server.
