Con not connect to a windows 8 machine with Remote Desktop

I can not connect to my Window 8 machine with Remote access. I have Allowed it everywhere i can think of and i have turned off every firewall. Any ideas?


The trouble shooting messages are:

1. Remote access to server is not enabled ... I think it is. Where is this?

2. The remote computer is turned off ...  no it's on

3. The Remote computer is not available on the network... I can see the computer I just cant connect to it.


I am sure there is some hidden check box somewhere.
