Network Location Awareness service

On June 28, 2006, in news, by

So it all started when Dave Nickason had a couple of workstations that just would not let him RWW into them. And when he went to query them, they had the XP sp2 firewall not allowing the remote desktop functions…but they were on the domain so it made no sense that they wouldn’t see the domain… but yet they would not.

He found that if he ensured that the Network Location Awareness service was set to automatic, then it ensured that as it booted up it would check the network status consistently. It’s supposed to handle this manually but for whatever reason it did not.

So check that NLA service and flip it to automatic if you need to.
