these three things are right with me but I still can't connect... what to do?
Those three things are just for the "ERROR: connect: Connection refused." message. Sponsored Links
Anyway, if you are connecting the windows box trough a local area network, try disabling the windows firewall and launch this two commands from an unix shell or windows cmd. [ or Register to view code] Login [ or Register to view code] Login
Substitute 192.168.0.19 with your windows box ip address. With windows firewall disabled, it must reply pings and accept the telnet connection (it will be automatically closed, but accepted at start).
If neither ping or telnet give a successful reply, paste results here, but probably both systems aren't correctly connected to the LAN or misspelled address, assuming that you enabled terminal server service correctly, otherwise review the full tutorial.
Telnet worked, but not ping... [ or Register to view code] Login
it didn't stop.
Well dont worry about ping, it is working too, under unix it wont stop untill you press "Ctrl + C".
If telnet was able to connect, and gave you the message "Connected to 192.168.1.4" then rdesktop should work too, you should try again with the rdesktop command.
Otherwise, did you set password to at least one user, and added that user to the "remote desktop" group?
If rdesktop command, still fails, please post the error message, because if telnet is connecting, the error cannot be "connection refused".

this is the error I get
@ riqued; you can stop the ping with ctrl c and it seems you didnt have enabled 'remote desktop' on your windows machine.
the easiest way to do this is like this:
-right click 'my computer'
-mark the option 'Allow users to connect remotely to this computer
now from your ydl you can use remote desktop to login to you windows machine.
I have more easier resolution for all of your issues, just use logmein for remote desktops
