I've searched through the forum but can't see an answer to my question. If it is there - please point me to it. I decided to setup a PC with Hyperv Server 2012 as the core installation and then play putting various VMs on. HyperV installed OK and I went through the various setup steps I found on the web; rename, set workgroup, date and time, network and a local admin account. I also enabled remote desktop and ping. Its on a wired LAN. I can ping the server by either IP or name. I am unable to access via Remote Desktop Connection or add it to my Hyper-V Manager on my Win 8.1 PC. Various tutorials appear to show people RDCing in after first setup. A couple suggest the firewall may be an issue so I tried; netsh advfirewall set currentprofile settings remotemanagement enable; but that didn't help. Can anyone suggest what is blocking my remote access?
