Hey guys. So I am having an issue with RDP in Windows 7 Ultimate. When I am at home I sometimes like to access my laptop from another computer in the house. Now I whenever I go to remote in it just starts the session, Does the login to my account and just quits without even loading the desktop. Remote Desktop is enabled in the system properties and the services are set to start automatically and the firewall is configured correctly. I can connect to another machine from my laptop but not the other way around.
Ensure network discovery is enabled on the Windows 7 laptop. It will allow other devices on the network to connect to the device (sounds like it's already enabled if you are hitting the loggin screen - something to check though).
Is your laptop running Win 7 Home Premium by any chance? A machine running Win 7 HP can only serve as a client, not a host for RDP. Only machines running Win 7 Pro, Ultimate or Enterprise can act as a host.
