    Hi Guys,
    i dont know if i am asking on the right forum about my issue.
    when i am connected over the VPN, can't RDP to LAN Win 7 Pro.
    the errors comes back with Internal error has occured.

    when i am connected with the VPN i can ping the machine and everything is fine
    when i am on the LAN with the same laptop RDP works fine.

    connecting from Win 8 64bit trying to RDP to Win 7 Pro 64bit

    thank you for your help

    have you opened a port in your router for RDP? Forward TCP port 3389 to the address (e.g. of the machine you want to remote to.

    Maybge the IP of the machine you're using is changed while in using VPN connection?!

    In Security Kiss, which I mainly use, the IP of my desktop change from 192.xxx.xxx.xxx to 10.x.x.x! If that's happen to your machine, the port forwarding in Router will not work because of false IP!
