failure to locate desktop
I have a motorola xoom which uses the android platform, just downloaded the app
and want to connect to my laptop and desktop using the xoom...
both computers have windows xp. I am using the auto discovery with my google account, so i dont have to change any router settings... I am able to access the laptop remotely, which is connected to my network via wifi... I am unable to connect to my desktop which is wired by an ethernet line. when i open the pocket cloud auto discover box from the task bar of the desk top and click on the test rdp and vnc connectivity, the response i receive is:
rdp to port 3389 failed
vnc to port 5900 failed
what do i need to do to be able to connect to my desktop?
it is xp professional,
and yes, i can sign into gmail onthe desktop, i am also signed in when i click on the pocket cloud auto discovery from my desktop , when i click on test rdp and vnc connectivity to see whats going on, i get the red message, rdp to port 3389 failed and vnc to port 5900 failed ..
i am not running any antivirus, but I am a bit confused as to your request to open up ports...
the reason i went with pocket cloud was to avoid messing around with the settings on my router...when i click on the wyse pocketclould auto discovery,
it indicates that since i am signing in with my google account, the desktop will be automatically discovered on my mobile device... it also indicates that i am signed in via auto discovery...
as i indicated previously i can connect with my laptop, which is on the same network without any issues, so opening a port is not a problem...
on my laptop i had to download something with regards to vnc however with the desktop i did not....could that be the issue?
