Cannot connect VIA Remote Desktop to Windows 8.1 on a virtual machine RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have Windows 8.1 Enterprise running in a Hyper-V VM. For some reason I cannot connect to the VM using remote desktop. I am using a Microsoft account and  remote desktop is enabled and my account has access. I am able to see the VM under networks and access shared folders. The error I am getting is "Remote Desktop can't connect to the remote computer....".

    Any ideas?

  • My account has access to RDP. The  firewall rule to allow RDP was missing the permission for public networks. After this change the RDP client can find the computer and I can get in. Yay!

    Thanks for the tip to check the firewall.
