unable to connect via RDP app on windows 8 phone to windows 8 laptop


  • Unable to RDP my windows 8 laptop from windows 8 HTC phone through RDP app...I have version  6.2..9200 of win 8 on laptop...
    I have followed proper steps to establish connect but no access. However the same setup works on windows 7 laptop.
    one thing that I notice is the limited options available when I do start>control panel>system>remote settings>remote tab 
    I only see following option
    Remote Assistance:

    allow remote assistance connections to this computer. which is checked.

    but the other three usually appear in windows 7 are not there under remote desktop on same tab

    missing option-->Remote desk"border:0px;font-family:'Segoe UI', Arial, sans-serif;margin:0px;padding:0px;vertical-align:top;-webkit-font-smoothing:antialiased;-webkit-text-size-adjust:none;color:#333333;font-size:13px;line-height:normal;">
    dont allow connections to this computer
    allow connections from computers running any version of remote desktop(less secure)

    allow connections only from computers running remote desktop with network level authentication(more secure) 

    Please suggest

  • Hi,

    If the target PC is Windows 8, it needs to be running Windows 8 Pro or Windows 8 Enterprise in order to support incoming Remote Desktop connections.
