    I've tried to connect via ip also. It behaves like to RDP is disabled on my host pc. Can I try to enable it on registry? Or maybe the service is not running? What is the service name?

    I tried to use that port, but then I've changed it again to 3389. No luck.

    This just happened to me as well. From the Start Screen, type 'allow an app...' You should see the entry for the 'allow an app through the firewall. Click on it and it will open the Allowed apps screen directly. Scroll down until you see Remote Desktop and see if it is enabled. The checkboxes may be grey, indicating a partial configuration.

    If you are comfortable with it, just click on Advanced Setting button near the top of the list. You can then changed any entry. Go to Remote Desktop and toggle the checkbox until it is white and checked. Then click on Okay to save.

    Be careful. Checking the boxes may allow full access for private and public networks.
