We couldn't connect to the remote PC. Make sure the PC is turned on and connected to the network, and that remote access is enabled.

Error code: 0x204.....

I have tried all versions of the software, gave the program access to everything on my Mac, made sure remote access was on, even tried port forwarding(whether I did it correctly or not idk) and it still doesn't work. I am sure the IP address I am entering is correct, and I'm almost certain there isn't a port number I should be entering after. Ive done loads and loads of troubleshooting(almost 48 hours of troubleshooting) and I still have no answer.)

also, keep in mind, I am trying to connect to my system from the same system.

PLEASE, someone help me find the answer as it is very frustrating

    Hi,
    "I am trying to connect to my system from the same system."
    Are you using remote desktop service client for mac to remote from one mac to another mac?

    If so, kindly note the MS RD client is used to remote from mac to computer running windows OS like windows 10 or windows server 2019 and so on.

    Allow Apple Remote Desktop to access your Mac

    If not, kindly confirm the OS version running on the target computer which you could type" winver" in the Run. We will continue investigate with enough details.
