    I'm having some difficulty getting my playbook to remotely connect via the Remote Desktop Application for Blackberry Playbook.
    I've inputted my User and Password, and my native IP Address but it always comes up "Could not connect to server."

    What am I doing wrong and what can I do to fix this?

    Thanks

    Make sure you have enabled remote desktop on Windows. It is not on by default. Also make sure you can ping the PC to make sure the network is working. You can use the network tools in the WiFi setup to ping. I suspect the issue is RD is not enabled.

    Try this...
    Do not put the username or password in the setup screen of the app. Just the Server name and address. Then connect and put the username and password in when prompted.
    Worked for me.

    OK now I could use some help. I have the IP but I still can not log in.

    Server = ipv4
    Username = username
    Password=password
    Domain is computer name
    Port stays 339
    Remote desktop is on on both computers I am connecting too. Win 7 and win 8
    So far nothing.

    Server = Should be your IP adress
    Username = leave it blank (will be prompted for on connection)
    Password=leave it blank(will be prompted for on connection)
    Domain needs to be your domain (workgroup) not your computername
    Port stays 339

    I'm am getting frustrated with this app. I have tried every IP I can find and everything I think could be a domain. Still nothing. I've tried it on three different computers.

    Edit well I got it on one PC. Now I need to set up the work PC. I think a more descriptive setup tutorial would be helpful.
