I know this may sound like a trivial configuration, but I cannot seem to get my WHS 2011 box to let me Remote into it from my Win7 PC using Remote Desktop connection (not the web-based Remote Web Access).

I have checked my firewall, but it seems like the firewall on the server is blocking the connection. I checked the firewall (I'm just using the built-in firewall for now) and everything seems OK.

I'd like to run the WHS as a headless machine without a keyboard and mouse, but need to get Remote Desktop working first. I can see the server from my desktop PC and laptop, so I know that the router is letting data pass through, but again ,I think it may be a firewall issue...

Any other suggestions?

Nevermind. figured it out. Have to use the IP address apparently (I must have DNS or something turned off on the server, but at least I can remote in now).
