RDP–Remote Desktop and Wireless Networking

Tags:
Network protocols
I've found many blogs, forums, and other websites related to my problem, but none have provided me a specific solution. I'm running Win XP Pro on a VAIO desktop hard wired to a Belkin wireless Pre-N router. On the other end is an HP Pavilion wireless laptop. PROBLEM: During a Remote Desktop session, the Pavilion does not recoginze VAIO directories/drives in the My Computer listing. However, when the VAIO connects to the Pavilion, the Pavilion's drives can be listed. Then from the VAIO I can open directories in both computers and copy by drag n' drop. But while at the Pavilion connected to the VAIO, no such copying can be done. Remote Desktop works well otherwise. Zone Alarm Pro firewall is configured on both machines to accept the other. Port forwarding is configured on the Belkin. I've dumped DNS and re-run both the New Connection Wizard and the Network Setup Wizard. The selection in System Properties to allow remote connection is selected in both. Do you know how to access directories/drives on the VAIO when connected to it via the Pavilion? Thanks, David

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Sorry not to be able to answer your question directly, but your question doesn’t contain enough information, and would leave me making assumptions – so instead, here are some specific questions to clarify the situation, and perhaps shed some light on it.

1) “During a Remote Desktop session, the Pavilion…” Can I assume that the Pavilion has connected to TermSvr on the VAIO? What user name is being used, and what are its privileges?

2) “the Pavilion does not recognize VAIO directories/drives” Do you mean that they are not visible? Or do you mean that you see them, but cannot open them?

3)Are you in a Domain with Group Policies set? As with question 1, are there different user rights?

4) Have you looked at any of the logs?

Write back and let us know.
