Can't remote into Windows 8.1 Enterprise PC


New Member
I'm trying to remote from a Windows 7 Enterprise computer into a Windows 8.1 Enterprise computer, but it always fails at the Initiating Remote Connection stage.

  1. Remote desktop is enabled - enabling/disabling the NTLM setting didn't seem to make a difference
  2. Both PCs are on the same local network
  3. I'm attempting to connect via IP address
  4. The Windows 7 PC can successfully ping the Windows 8.1 PC
  5. Remoting in the other direction (Windows 8.1 PC to Windows 7 PC) works just fine
  6. I've tried restarting both, but to no avail

I'm at a loss - any ideas?
