1.the error message is on the host machine, because it says it can't start the service (which is listed as started in the services list)
Error Message~Terminal Service start failed. The relevant status code was Error: 0xc004f012.
2.Yes, I can ping myself, and all the other computers in the house can ping my computer, and access the network shares I have.
3.Yes, that is what I was using.
(BTW:BTW: I only used telnet, because almost every post I found on google said to telnet into the computer, and my brother who is a computer technition said that if the remote desktop was working, then a telnet client would connect, and all you would see is a blank screen)
