Have you added an allow rule for that port in your firewall (assuming your firewall is turned on)?
OK, I think that might be it, this machine is the only one I have the firewall turned on, how do I allow a different port through the firewall? My firewall says "this is a predefined rule and some settings cannot be modified".
I Am trying it on windows 7 but its showing a blank screen
Since I don't have a crystal ball a few details would be nice. Start out with what you have done, and what you are trying to do when you get the blank screen.
i'm guessing you're trying to play media through it but its not meant for that
I've read several pages back from the end of this thread. Can I confirm that there was no way to allow a non-admin user of Win7 HP to log in remotely? Should I give up on this quest?
As far as I know, it will work if you add the user to the "Remote Desktop Users" group

@erkotz, you can't add a user to "Remote Desktop Users" group in HP (interface not available.)
But you when you create a new user account, I think it will automatically be able to log in remotely. There just is no way to change an existing user account.
After some testing, it appears that only the Administrators group is has the remote login permission.
Why would you want to login remotely to a HTPC except to do Administration Functions?
My System Specs
I downloaded the concurrent RDP Patcher which comes with a changlog file but no readme?
I executed the file and chose:
Enable multiple logons per user
Enable blank password logons
termsrv.dll is patched
However when I try to remote on to the patched PC I get the error:
The Mac cannot connect to the Windows-based computer.
This problem can occur if:
• The Windows-based computer is not set up to accept remote connections.
• The Windows-based computer is not turned on.
• The Mac, or the Windows-based computer is experiencing network problems.
Try connecting to the Windows-based computer again, or contact your administrator.
Have I missed a step? Is there something else I need to do?
I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium - x64
In Home Premium, none of your users are configured to be allowed to connect remotely. Plus, there is no "remote desktop users" group in Home Premium. I think someone earlier in this thread had a solution... but the easiest thing is to use a username that is in the Administrators group... and I don't think you can logon with a blank password to an administrative user.

How can I use a username if I can't even connect to the remote computer?
Logon locally as an administrative user. Create a password for your user, or create a new administrative user with a password. Try logging on remotely using the administrative username WITH A PASSWORD.
you can have an admin account with no password, you just set it in the security policies. i had this set up for a while, using RDP as well (although i use the patch from "missing remote", its probably the same) and it was fine but i went back to having a password when i realised you could also set the PC to boot without entering said password
Would anyone be prepared to login to my computer and set me up?
I haven't got a clue what I'm doing!
I'm happy to pay.
1. create admin user account in Win7 with password
2. enable remote connections on win7 PC in control panel - system - remote settings
3. check whether you can log on remotely to win 7 PC using RDP and your newly created admin username and password
4. install RDP patch www.missingremote.com/.../how-enable-concurrent-sessions-windows-7-service-pack-1-rtm can;t comment on the patch on this thread but missing remote is very straightforward
where does it fail
