Windows 10: Can't connect w/ remote desktop from one PC but others work

    Can't connect w/ remote desktop from one PC but others work

    I have four PCs - A, B, C, D. They're all running Win10 on a private home network connection and all allow remote desktop connections. I use the same local username/password on all.

    B, C and D will connect to any other machine. A will connect to B and C but not D - it sees D on the network but my username/password never work. In fact, I can remote in to B from A then remote from that remote connection into D. But that's a pretty convoluted way of getting from A to D.

    Any guesses what could be different about A that it will not connect to D but B and C will connect with the same credentials?

    Thanks in advance,

    One thing I would try just to make sure they are all the same.

    Right click on Network in systray, open network and properties, click on Change Advance Sharing, make sure everyone is consistent in all settings, Private network, discovery etc. Right at bottom you will notice home group. One option is allow sign on with user accounts and passwords.
