Error 1707: Network address invalid when trying to connect remotely

Error 1707

A network address is referred to as an identifier of a node or host on a network. Network addresses are designed to be unique identifiers across the network. Here are some other similar errors relating to RDP: The logon attempt failed for the remote desktop connection, We could not connect to the remote PC with error code 0x204 and make sure the PC is turned on and connected to the network, Remote Desktop can not find the computer FQDN and this might mean that FQDN does not belong to the specified network. The message “Invalid IP Address” indicates a problem with your PC network setup.

Every computer that uses an Ethernet-type network, such as the Internet, has an Internet Protocol address that lets other computers communicate with it. Without a valid IP address, your computer cannot use the network.
Network address invalid


To resolve this issue, kindly verify the following below
– Ensure the PC is assigned an IP Address
– Ensure the name of the server has not changed.
– Also ensure the DNS name is resolvable and
– Lastly, ensure you can ping the device.

What worked for me: I had to assign a TCP IP to the server in order to be able to communicate with the server on the network. For more information on how to assign TCP/IP address, see the following article Post OS Installation and configuration of Windows Server 2019 Properties.
