    RDP not working from laptop to PC


    Hi guys,

    I am having trouble getting RDP to work on my PC.
    I have checked everything.
    But I can RDP from my PC to my laptop.

    I have on both laptops a password, (I do have the same username, could that conflict?)
    I have on both PC's the latest W10 update (10586) and I can ping both PC's to eachother.
    I have disabled my second network card on my PC but still nothing.

    I really am out of idea's, can someone help me out?

    What OS is on the PC? Must be Pro for it to work as the target of a RDP connection.
    Laptop must already have Pro since it works.

    Both have Windows 10 Pro (10568) because I used the same ISO for both.

    Check Windows Firewall, make sure Remote Desktop Connection is checked in the Allow apps to communicate through the firewall. I have it checked for Public and Private, you may want only Private.

    Seems to be working now. Never changed anything in the firewall on either PC's, so it is strange that from PC to laptop it was working, and the other way around not, but thanks for the input!
