I'm trying to RDP into one Windows 8.1 Pro machine from another Windows 8.1 Pro machine. Neither the desktop nor Metro RDP app will accept my credentials. However, I can connect via RDP fine using the Microsoft Android RDP app and even access shared folders on the one machine from the other using the same exact credentials. Anyone got a clue what's going on?

Edit: Got it. You can't just log in with the account name only, has to be "LOCALACCOUNT\*USERNAME*"
