    I used to connect remote desktop connection under windows
    ME or 2000 operating system. After I connected with my new
    laptop (windows XP home edition), I could not connect
    anymore with ME or window 2000. Does anyone know why or
    how to fix this problem.

    Whilst this is a question probably best asked in a group supporting XP two
    possibilities come to mind, especially given the words "new laptop".
    First have you enabled access to the Remote Desktop on the laptop? System
    Properties | Remote and check the box "Allow user to connect remotely ...."
    Secondly have you enabled port 3389 on any firewalls that you hopefully have
    enabled, at least on the laptop?
