I am getting this error message when I try to fix to our remote Database via Remote Desktop Connection.
What should I do now?
Remote Desktop Connection
Remote Desktop can't connect to the remote computer for one of these reasons:
1. Remote access to the server is not enabled
2. The remote computer is turned off
3. The remote computer is not available on the network
Make sure the remote computer is turned on and connected to the network, and that remote access in enabled.
I searched in online, and I got an answer that this may be from Firewall, but this is not accurate.
That’s why I am asking you to give a solid answer. I need to solve it quickly.
Please help me to get rid of it.
